AGA announced that it could no longer push online gambling

May 22, 2014

The American Gaming Association (AGA), which counts a lot of members including Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts, Las Vegas Sands and Boyd Gaming, announced that it will no longer support online gambling in the United States.

The casino industry’s top lobbying group’s CEO Geoff Freeman has told The Wall Street Journal that his group could no longer continue to push online gambling, arguing that the industry was becoming sharply divided over online gambling.  “One of the things I’ve learned in this industry is we are extraordinarily competent at shooting at one another, said Geoff Freeman, who has been at the helm of the AGA for less than a year. The snipers in this industry are of the highest quality, and if you let that be the focus, we’ll kill each other.” According to Goeff Freeman, “online gambling is an issue that the association cannot lead on because of disagreements among major casinos ». Most of the major casinos, including MGM and Caesars, have been pushing for legalization, but Las Vegas Sands CEO Sheldon Adeldon has led a national campaign against it.

This announcement comes just a couple of month after Geoff Freeman pledge in front of federal lawmakers in favor of online gambling regulation and the creation of the Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection, backed by AGA and MGM.
