It goes without saying that nobody wants to be hit with yet another tax or fee by the government. It really does not even matter what sort of story the local politician attempts to paint for his constituents, the reality is that most everyone despises even the thought more taxes. But the will of the people be damned is what the governor of Pennsylvania seems to be saying to his residents. Sure he has come out on record that a tax increase is desperately needed to plug a hole in the state budget.
Yeah, okay whatever. But instead of trying to spread the pain of a budget deficit with more taxes on state residents how about looking for other ways to bring in revenue? One such way of adding to the state coffers is of course by bringing online casino dollars.
It turns out that at least one politician in Pennsylvania is willing to think outside the box. In this case, it is State Representative John Payne. For the record, Representative Payne is the chairman of the State House Gaming Oversight Committee. From that position, Payne can speak more authoritatively on the subject than many of his colleagues in the State House of Representatives.
Per Representative Payne, the state of Pennsylvania could begin taking in around $120Million in online casino revenue. Payne goes on to make the case that this revenue projection is actually extremely conservative. Translation: the state could and should expect even more revenue dollars to start piling ...

At least that is what it looks like at first glance. Yet, if you take just a moment to examine this situation a bit closer, you may well conclude this is actually exactly what the online gambling industry really needs after all.
First; what is going on here? In the off chance you missed the headline news that flashed across the bottom of your screen, this is all about new rules that are suddenly hitting online gambling operators in and around Europe. Although, truth be told, this should not really be such a surprise. After all, each and everyone of these new rules was announced well in advance.
The first sign of this supposed turmoil came about when the site 888.com publicly announced that the impending deal (a takeover by none other than the giant firm William Hill, PLC) was over and done with. Although the breakdown of this deal was blamed on price issues with a key shareholder, outsiders are pointing more towards the impending regulations.
For example, over in the U.K., the government is for the first time ever imposing mandatory licensing requirements on online gambling operators. In addition, there is a new British tax specifically targeted at online gambling operators. In this case, the British tax will be assessed against all revenues arising from the U.K. regardless of where the online gambling operator is headquartered.
