“There are few laws that have failed more spectacularly than PASPA,” AGA president Geoff Freeman tell Yahoo Finance. “It was passed under the auspices of protecting the integrity of games… But in the 25 years since it was enacted, we’ve seen trillions of dollars bet underground on sports, and there’s no way to track it. It’s all happening in the dark, in unregulated markets… PASPA is making the games we all enjoy less safe.”

"Since 2005, the Florida Lottery and IGT have worked together to implement solutions and initiatives that have been key to the Lottery's growth," said Jay Gendron, IGT Senior Vice President, North America Lottery" The Lottery's close attention to the needs of players and retailers has been instrumental in making it among the world's most successful and respected lotteries – and serves as a model for driving lottery growth through effective branding and innovation. Working together, our aligned organizations can build on this success even further for the benefit of Florida's education program."

Following our company's third consecutive quarter of revenue growth, we see this as a perfect time to accelerate momentum and explore additional opportunities to deliver greater value from this strong and rapidly growing segment of our business," said Kevin Sheehan, CEO and President of Scientific Games.
