“From the traditional casino experience to online options, American adults’ demand for gaming is at an all-time high.

“Sustaining our momentum will take unified industry efforts around combating pernicious illegal operators and growing responsible gambling efforts in tandem with the growth of the legal market – both of which the AGA is committed to lead on throughout 2024.

“Gaming’s success translates directly to the success of the states, cities and towns in which we operate. We are proud to be in 47 US jurisdictions, acting as economic drivers, creating jobs and providing the funding that makes critical public education programs, infrastructure projects, problem gambling resources and more possible.”
