A coalition of seven casinos in Pennsylvania are fighting the Pennsylvania Lottery over its online games. The casinos believe the iLottery products are too similar to casino slot games and therefore illegal. They wanted legal action to shut the games down.
Judge Cohn Jubelirer said that while many of the games are similar to online and land-based slot games, the casinos had not “fully and completely” established a right to relief. Pennsylvania Lottery iLottery games are safe for now.
The case, however, is not closed. The judge placed a deadline of August 30th to provide relevant evidence in the case.
