HARRISBURG (AP) – Sports betting is coming to Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved a set of regulations Wednesday that agency officials say is sufficient to allow sports betting to start. However, none of the owners of Pennsylvania’s 12 licensed casinos have applied for a license. Licensed casinos can pay $10 million to operate sports betting. In May, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a law that bars gambling on football, basketball, baseball, and other sports in most states. Pennsylvania lawmakers prospectively legalized sports betting last October and slapped a 34% tax rate on it.
