ADW dumps me

MutuelOnline is no longer taking Pa residents

They say the Source Market Fee that is being imposed by Pennsylvania (10%?)

makes it impossible to do business with me...... : :






Are they still a Sponser here?

haha, you live in a generally backwards state.. where you cannot buy beer and wine at the same store, cannot bet via most adws if you live within 35 mi of the state monopoly gamer - Meadows or something like that.. wait..how come i know all this?

It's not your ADW, Ray. (They aren't the ones behind this.)

It's the Pennsylvania Tracks and Horsemen. THEY are the ones who lobbied the legislature for the 10% source market fee.

They did it fully knowing that it would cause many ADWs to stop doing business with Pennsylvania residents.

Looking at it - and given that Pennsylvania horsemen have been getting millions of dollars in slots subsidies over the years- and given the insane trifecta takeout at PEN and PARX (it's 30%.)...

I'm wondering if the right thing to do is ask all players everywhere to consider a national players boycott of Pennsylvania tracks. (Texas too.)

The problem may not be with the fee itself, but with the amount of paperwork it requires.

Thx for info, Jeff, Robert

I have accounts with 4 (now 3) ADWs that take wagers from Pa residents and this appears to be an individual business decision, not a total ban, so I can see reduced rebates coming but maybe not a complete halt to my game.

We'll see how it goes.

I am watching TVG, and just saw an ad for PABets.com. I don't remember ever seeing that. Is that a new ADW just for PA residents?

Add New York to that list. I'm sure many ADWs will be looking at shutting down there as well at the end of the year.

I have heard that NYRA already charges very high fees for it signal. If that is true and this goes on top of it, it would make rough on the ADWs. Is this new "tax" just NY residents or is it on anybody that bets their signal?

All wagers (not just New York tracks) from NY residents.

Basically if you play someplace where you get rebates, figure they are going down 5% across the board, or your ADW of choice may leave the State altogether.
