The popular casino is taking action in order to protect the industry.

A popular Bucks County casino has become a major player in the recent movement to bring gambling back to traditional establishments. Katherine Sayre wrote about the local casino in The Wall Street Journal.

“The proliferation of illegal games got to the point where it just can’t be tolerated,” said Gary Samms, an attorney for the casino.

Parx has paid $50 million for their slot-machine license, and their action against Pace-O-Matic is in order to protect the long-standing establishment and others like them.
