AGA Issues Comment on Daily Fantasy Sports

This week the American Gaming Association voiced in on the controversy surrounding the daily fantasy sports sector in the United States, giving a series of suggestions that it says will aid the games going forward.

The stance of the trade group was announced through a statement in which the AGA announced: "As we move forward, the AGA will work with law enforcement, sports leagues and other interested parties to consider effective approaches that protect consumers and the integrity of sports."

"The recommendations reflect broad industry consensus and were developed by leadership from the industry's casino operators, suppliers and sports book operators in Nevada and across 40 states through a Sports Betting Task Force, which unanimously agrees that current law is not achieving its intended result."

Suggestions by the group include exploring an alternative to current laws regarding sportsbetting that will allow for the offering of these games, working on regulations that protect consumers, and developing additional tools to combat illegal sportsbetting operations, as illegal betting in the US reached more than $140 billion this year.
