Illegal gambling crackdown urged
The nation’s casino owners and gambling machine makers want to team with states to crack down on illegal gambling.
Speaking to the National Assn. of Attorneys General, American Gaming Assn. President Geoff Freeman called on state legal leaders to join with his group.
Freeman said illegal gambling is siphoning money from legitimate casinos. He said states should care because illegal operations don’t pay taxes, aren’t regulated to protect consumers and may be funding other criminal operations.
