(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania liquor regulators are giving their permission for the first license for a tavern in the state to operate small games of chance.
The Liquor Control Board voted today to award a tavern gambling license to Midway Tavern in Adams County. It's located near Hanover,York County.
The bar's owners must pay a $2,000 fee before they'll be allowed to run the games, which include pull tabs, daily drawings and charitable raffles.
The tavern licenses were authorized by a state law enacted in November, and state officials have projected they will bring in about $100 million in the coming year's budget.
So far, however, only 10 applications have been filed. State budget analysts had expected that about 2,000 bar owners would get licenses, based on the experience of Indiana.
