Pennsylvania Senator Ted Erickson last week introduced a new bill that is to set the ground rules for legalizing online poker and other forms of online gambling.

The bill which is looking at the benefits and enhancements which could be derived from online gaming and although there is no direct reference to gambling via the internet the government is seriously considering the authorizing of online slots and table games including poker.

A very exciting part of this bill is that it will allow persons living in Pennsylvania to participate with other US states that currently have online gaming facilities which are licensed. Regulated and considered lawful.
