Update: Mark Amodei Calls on Gambling Executives to Unite on Online Gambling

Good system dependent on unified approach

The keynote address at this week's Global iGaming Summit & Expo in San Francisco was given by US Congressman and Nevada Senator Mark Amodei, who called on gambling executives in the country to join forces and unite on the question of online gambling legalization, if they want their desired system to be introduced.

He said that “sitting on your hands is not a satisfactory option,” and that "....if you continue to do nothing about e-gaming regulation then you play into the hands of those who oppose you. You have set the groundwork to finish this up - the only challenge is to resolve the issue amongst yourselves. The bill that will pass is what you folks can come together on."

He also opined that a unified approach may help implement a US legal and properly regulated online gambling regime in a year, indicating that he prefers a federal to state-by-state solution.

"Moving online is a gamble and you can win big, but individual state attempts to bring in online gaming could lead to state laws that don't live up to a federal level," Amodei concluded.
