AGA's president Geoff Freeman plans to push for a new approach to legalised and licensed sports betting in the US

Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association, announced that he will be discussing AGA's plans for a new approach to US sports betting at the iGaming Super Show.

 

 

The iGaming Executive Conference will take place on June 8th in Amsterdam. The AGA announced last November that it planned to study the current set up of legal sports betting in the US, which is only allowed in Las Vegas. The goal of the study is to see if rational and legal alternatives could be envisaged.

 

 

Freeman commented: “Sports betting has never been more popular in America than it is today. The illegal sports betting market is running rampant. The AGA is leading the conversation around a new approach to sports betting that enhances consumer protections, strengthens the integrity of games and recognises fans' desire for greater engagement with sports.”

 

 

The iGaming Executive Conference is the biggest gathering of leading global igaming chief executives and is a part of the iGaming Super Show, which takes place on June 7-10th this year at the RAI Amsterdam.
