Bally Online Casino Has Been Granted a QGE License to Launch in Pennsylvania
The Keystone State will soon be home to another online casino. The Bally PA online casino received approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) to operate in Pennsylvania as a Qualified Gaming Entity (QGE). Two online gaming licenses for table games and slots were granted to Bally online casino by the PGCB. Peer-to-peer gaming and poker will not be accessible through Bally.
PGCB Issues a QGE License to Bally’s Online Casino
Outside-of-state operators are able to apply for an iGaming license without collaborating with a physical casino thanks to QGE status. Despite Penn State’s physical casino being in trouble with the law, QGE permits Bally’s online casino to continue operating. On January 3, the PGCB reopened QGE applications, and on March 3, the window was shut. Operators can apply for one of three certifications that are offered, which include those for table games, online poker, and slots. Bally Casino was the first operator to request certification. The PGCB has only opened QGE applications twice, the first time being in 2018.
The Launch of the Bally Online Casino is Independent of the State College Mini-Casino
Notwithstanding the operator’s legal difficulties over the PA mini-casino close to Penn State’s campus, Bally online casino moved forward. The only other online platform to go live before its physical casino did so was PlayLive! Casino. Due to a probable illicit bid Ira Lubert may have made to get the license for 2020, Bally Casino in State College is currently the target of legal action.
