Pennsylvania Supreme Court to determine skill games legality

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court will determine the legality of the skill game machines in the state. The court announced it will accept the petition from state Attorney General Michelle Henry to review a lower court’s opinion that skill games aren’t slot machines.

The American Gaming Association (AGA) estimates that there are nearly 67,000 skill game terminals in the state. Pennsylvania has previously considered the games to be unlicensed gambling machines that are operating illegally and subject to seizure by police.
