PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board will begin accepting applications later this month for “tavern gaming licenses.”

The licenses will allow some businesses with a liquor license to offer various games of chance.

However, it appears a lot of business owners have questions about the brand-new option.

Pennsylvanians packed a meeting in Greentree on Tuesday to learn about the licensing process and procedures involved in “tavern gaming.”

Recently, Gov. Tom Corbett signed Act 90 into law.

It gives certain establishments, with a liquor license, the ability to apply for a separate license to conduct small games.

It’s a new law, a new program and folks interested have a lot of questions.

The application for “tavern gaming licenses” will become available on Jan. 27.
