The Skill Game debate: Games of skill or illegal gambling? 

To the owners of convenience stores and taverns, skill game machines represent a vital source of revenue during challenging economic times, but to the lottery and established gaming industry, skill games are considered unwelcomed competition and illegal gambling devices that are costing the state hundreds of millions of dollars each year.

What are skill games, and are they different than games of chance?

We address those questions, and more: 

  • How is the proliferation of skill game machines in Pennsylvania impacting the regulated gaming industry and state lottery?
  • How will the legality of skill games ultimately be determined?

Each day brings new issues to this industry. Join us for this timely update.

Co-sponsored with the Pennsylvania Bar Association Gaming Law Committee. For more information about the Committee, please visit their webpage.

All attendees will receive the course book as a digital download.

Recorded in April 2022.
