AGA Statement on the Responsible Gambling Collaborative’s New Effectiveness Principles and Study on Responsible Gaming Funding

Collaborative’s Work Charts New Course for Next Decade of Responsible Gaming

JANUARY 10, 2020

The American Gaming Association released the following statement after the Responsible Gambling Collaborative announced new effectiveness principles for responsible gaming and a state-by-state study on the allocation of responsible gaming funding:

“I can think of no better way to lead our industry into a new decade than renewing our commitment to effectively promote responsible gaming and tackle problem gambling head on,” said Bill Miller, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. “The Responsible Gambling Collaborative has an important role to play as we chart a new course for responsible gaming, and the AGA is proud to be a part of it. The research released today provides important insight into the allocation of funding for essential programs. As the top benefactor of gaming taxes, it’s troubling to see that state responsible gaming funds are not always used for their intended purpose.”
