Online casino developer 4ThePlayer.com has expanded its reach in the U.S. to Pennsylvania.

4ThePlayer.com has been approved to operate in the Keystone State by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).

The British company says that gaining approval in Pennsylvania underscores its commitment to growing its presence in the regulated U.S. gambling industry. It is also licensed to operate in New Jersey, Michigan, and Connecticut

“I am thrilled we can bring our unique gaming experience to the players of Pennsylvania. After the success we have seen with these titles in other states, we are excited for players in Pennsylvania to play them,” said Business Development Director and co-founder Chris Ash.

4ThePlayer.com titles including 4 Fantastic Lobsters and 9K Yeti will be available in Pennsylvania via Gaming Realms, the company’s platform partner.

Pennsylvania propose ban on credit card use for iGaming

Legislators have introduced a bill that would prevent players in Pennsylvania from using credit cards to fund their online gambling activities.

Senate Bill 1159, introduced by Sen. Wayne Fontana, proposes amendments to Title 4 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, which concerns gaming in the state. The measure states that operators “may not accept a credit card as a form of payment” for sports betting, DFS contests, iLottery, and iGaming activities.

Pennsylvania would join Iowa, Tennessee, and Massachusetts as states that have prohibited the use of credit cards to fund gaming activities.

Iowa banned the use of credit cards to fund sports betting in 2020. Since then, regulators have handed out over $20,000 in fines to operators for failing to comply with the credit card law.
