At a summit meeting of state attorneys general in Biloxi, Mississippi on Monday, CEO of the American Gaming Association, Geoff Freeman, announced a new plan to assist enforcement organizations in fighting illegal gambling.
The focus will be placed on four major areas including illegal sports betting, black market machines, Internet sweepstakes cafes and illegal betting online.
The initiative is known as “Stop Illegal Gambling - Play it Safe” and will not only focus on key areas but will also “dig into the roots of this problem” through the study of criminal patterns.
“Legal and regulated casino gaming in America is based on a foundation of integrity – something that is sorely lacking in the multi-billion dollar illegal gambling sector,” said Freeman. “Our industry is committed to working with law enforcement to expose illegal gambling, protect consumers and restore the revenue and jobs lost to shady, predatory operators.”
