The deadline for registration to speak at this hearing is noon on Friday, May 3, 2019.

PA Gaming Control Board
P.O. Box 69060
Harrisburg, PA 17106
Attention: Board Clerk

Pursuant to section 1326 of the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act, all licenses shall be subject to renewal every five years.  The renewal application must include an update of the information since its last renewal.

To implement the renewal requirement, the Board utilizes a two-step process:

  • First, the May 6th public hearing will be held before the Director of the PGCB’s Office of Hearings and Appeals for the purpose of receiving documentary evidence, hearing testimony and building a record upon which the Board will base its licensing decision.  The hearing record, along with a report from the Director of Hearings and Appeals, will be transmitted to the Board.
  • The second step is to hold a separate public hearing in Harrisburg at a later date where Stadium Casino, LLC representatives will offer oral arguments and Board members can ask additional questions.

At the renewal hearing, the burden is on the renewal applicant to establish and demonstrate, by clear and convincing evidence, its eligibility and suitability for renewal of the gaming license awarded in November 2014.

Following these proceedings, the Board will then be able to determine whether the licensee remains eligible and suitable consistent with the laws of the Commonwealth and are otherwise qualified to have the license renewed for a five-year period.

All questions that are not press-related should be referred to the PGCB’s Office of Hearings and Appeals at (717) 265-7451.

 

About the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board:

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is tasked to oversee all aspects of the state’s casino industry, including sports wagering offered currently at eight locations. The oversight also includes other new gaming initiatives, expected to be launched in the coming months, which were created through Act 42 of 2017, an amendment to the Race Horse Development and Gaming Act.

The Commonwealth’s casino industry currently consists of 10 stand-alone and racetrack casinos in operation, along with the two smaller resort casinos.  These facilities collectively employ over 16,000 people and annually generate approximately $1.4 billion in tax revenue from slot machine and table games play. The largest portion of that money is used for property tax reduction to Pennsylvania homeowners.

Additional information about both the PGCB’s gaming regulatory efforts and Pennsylvania’s gaming industry can be found at gamingcontrolboard.pa.gov.

8-13 Gambling Operators Gets Opportunity to Register Online Casinos in BelarusReading Time: 1 minute

 

Belarus has given permission to gambling operators for legally registering an online casino, if appropriate license has been obtained. Legislation currently does not prohibit Belarusians from online gambling on overseas websites. Belarusians also have access to newsletters and information about online casinos.

According to Marina Nevinkaya, the head of gambling department at Belarus’ Ministry of Taxes and Duties, when the transition period ends, restrictions will appear in this field.

“Publishing gambling content aimed at promotion and organising unlicensed online gaming will be illegal beginning with 1 April 2021. Two years after the entry into force of the basic provisions of the decree number 305, access to the websites containing such information, will be limited,” the representative of the Ministry said.

The gambling market of Belarus remains stable. According to the recent data, 106 companies hold gambling business, 94 license holders actually operate. There are 391 gambling establishments in Belarus, including 27 casinos, 176 gaming machine halls and 188 betting offices.
