HARRISBURG – Legislation placing strong penalties for online gambling in Pennsylvania is being proposed. Monroe County Rep.

Scavello added that even though online gambling is illegal in Pennsylvania, use of online gambling sites are on the increase. He said it is nearly impossible to prevent children from gambling online and difficult to police problem gamblers online.
