At G2E, AGA President Miller Focused on Illegal Offshore Gambling
MyBookie

This year's Global Gaming Expo is being held in Las Vegas. It's the annual conference and trade show that brings together the gaming industry. Last year, the chatter was about the exploding online sports gambling industry and concerns regarding the blitz of television advertising. This year the theme is about illegal gambling operations both in the United States and offshore.

AGA President Miller is talking about illegal gambling websites and machines. He says they prey on customers, especially the vulnerable and the underage. They don't provide any consumer protections or invest in responsible gaming.

AGA President Miller focused on illegal offshore gambling at G2E. AGA research found that Americans bet more than $300 billion annually with illegal and unregulated websites and machines. That results in a loss of $15 billion in gaming revenue and $4 billion a year in taxes.

AGA has appealed to the Department of Justice to help curtail the illegal wagering industry. AGA President Miller called for more aggressive local law enforcement regarding the machines and for tech companies and media companies to stop aiding offshore operations.
