AGA Introduces “Stop Illegal Gambling - Play it Safe”

AGA Introduces “Stop Illegal Gambling - Play it Safe” 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.”

  • On every illegal gambling opportunity have to have a legal alternative available for the players, otherwise everything is pointless. As far as I know the sports betting is not legal in most of the US states so what is the legal alternative? It's easy to be said "stop illegal gambling" but sometimes this is the only possible choice for the players with no equivalent legal options to choose from.
  • I think they should . Its hard enough for certain states to pass and allow legal gambling , the shady ones and illegal activitity the ones that don't follow the rules give the industry a bad name and then they wonder why people don't vote to legalize it in some places. The crack down on illegal machines in small disclosed areas in the US has been on the rise for some years now . They are always busting some illegal little ring running various slot type machines in cities where it is prohibited . You'll always have black market and some fool trying to make a buck and thinking they can get away with it. Im glad to see American Gaming association complying and assisting in this matter.
