US gambling industry in 2019
The gambling industry in America after the abolition of PASPA has risen to the next stage of its development. The changes affected not only the procedural and technological components but also the perception of regular and online gambling as the main form of entertainment.
Bill Miller, President, and CEO of the American Gambling Association (AGA) believes that the main task of representatives of the gambling industry is to establish a mutual understanding with government decision-makers at all levels.
“It is necessary to convey authorities an understanding that gambling has a positive effect on the economy, and operators put the commitment to the principles of responsible gambling at the forefront. Since 20% of the current composition of the Congress is new, the AGA’s responsibility is to involve and inform congressmen about the industry’s development goals and the importance of respecting pluralism,” - Miller said.
