    More details have arrived:

    In a bid to protect bricks-and-mortar casinos, the Internet gambling proposal has a wrinkle in the process for setting up an account to gamble online.
    Would-be online gamblers who live within a 20-mile radius of a casino, would have to go there to establish an account, a move that prevents established online gambling operators, such as affiliates of Harrah's Philadelphia, from potentially dominating the market.


    If the bill becomes law, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board would have to establish procedures for those who don't live close to a casino to establish an online gambling account over the Internet.


    The tax rate on Internet gambling would be 54 percent, the same as it is on slot machines.

    How does this 54% compares to other form of entertainment? Imo it's huge.
