AGA Releases “Stop Illegal Gambling” Toolkit to Tackle Offshore Gambling
The American Gaming Association is launching a set of tools to help bettors and operators distinguish between licensed and non-licensed products.
AGA is developing a toolkit to educate consumers about illegal gambling. AGA believes that illegal operators are not obligated to pay tax. It is also concerned about the fact that 76% of sports bettors in the United States have placed an illegal wager. The organization hopes to rally more industry stakeholders to help it tackle the issue. The tool kit contains Key Messages, Fact Sheets, and Social Media Content. A letter to the Wall Street Journal also explains the organization's current assessment of the state of sport gambling and its role in it.
