PA is going all-in now, expanding with new casinos and with online gambling; I haven't seen much reporting on the latter yet, but apparently it will be available in a few months while the regulatory agency works on it.

Pennsylvania has now joined [NJ,DE,NV], doubling the number of American adults authorized to gamble using their desktop computers, phones or other mobile devices...A comprehensive gambling bill signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf last week also adds mini-casinos, airport gambling, truckstop slot play, online lottery games ...

What about non-fantasy sports books?

I hope the bit about mini-casino’s leads to a lot of progressives in small establishments/bars.

The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 makes that a non starter unless federal law is changed, or Christie vs NCAA prevails in the supreme court later this year.

That would be nice too. The state is broke, they could use the revenue.

Just bring on the sports wagering in PA! I will never play online table games again. Tried it years ago and it is a losing proposition. Not random outcomes.

Horse race wagering is governed by a separate part of federal law written for that specific purpose (The Interstate Horseracing Act of 1978, as amended: 15 USC Ch. 57: INTERSTATE HORSERACING ) and is explicitly excluded from the federal statutes about other forms of sports betting.

The same way jai alai isn't a sport apparently.
