AGA Joins FBI in Stop Illegal Gambling Initiative

This story was published more than 8 years ago.

This week it was announced that the American Gaming Association announced that they are partnering with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation to help push the law enforcement agency's "Stop Illegal Gambling - Play it Safe" campaign.

The partnership between the two groups will see the AGA pushing the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center tool, which allows punters to push any tips related to illegal online gambling.

Commenting on the agreement AGA President and CEO Geoff Freeman said, "Our effort with the FBI will help us make significant headway in the fight against illegal gambling. In particular, the Internet Crime Complaint Center will be an invaluable tool for people in every state to report tips about the multi-billion dollar illegal gambling sector that preys on consumers, steals jobs and deprives state and local governments of revenues generated by the legal, regulated casino gaming industry."
