The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has begun accepting licence applications for operators, manufacturers and suppliers relative to sports betting.

The applications are available on the PGCB’s web site,, under its licensure section.

The news follows on from the state issuing a new set of temporary regulations for interested parties at the start of June, just over three weeks after the US Supreme Court struck down PASPA.

Licences are only available to partners of the state’s 12 land-based casinos. Those who can apply include software platform providers, manufacturers of equipment that facilitates sports betting on terminals and companies able to provide risk management or integrity services.

While in New Jersey, land-based casinos are permitted to partner with operators to offer up to three sportsbook skins, in PA third-party branded sites have been excluded.
