American Gaming Association Reaffirms its Support of Legalized Online Poker


The American Gaming Association put out a statement on Monday reassuring the public of its support of a legalized, licensed and regulated online poker marker in the US.

AGA CEO and president, Geoff Freeman, wrote:

"Time and again, government efforts to prohibit use of everyday products have failed. In 2012, Americans spent nearly $3 billion gambling with rogue offshore operators. The Internet cannot be forced back into the bottle - nor can market demand.

"We support pragmatism and strong regulation of online gaming that protects consumers, prevents underage play, ensures the integrity of the games and empowers law enforcement.

"New government efforts to prohibit online gaming will unintentionally strengthen black market providers, create more risk for American consumers, including children, and drive U.S. jobs and potential revenues overseas.

"We appreciate divergent viewpoints and welcome a healthy discussion on this complex issue."
