Illegal gambling has potential to prey upon a variety of victims: AGA

Home » Illegal gambling has potential to prey upon a variety of victims: AGA

Illegal gaming comes in many shapes and sizes, from offshore, online casinos and sportsbooks to unregulated slot machines and much more.

Chris Cylke, senior vice president of government relations at the American Gaming Association, said illegal gaming often lures users through brand recognition, generous promotions, better odds, the ability to gamble with cryptocurrency and more. Educating people on the risk of engaging with such illegal gaming, however, is a major part of combating it, he said.

“There’s a view by some that gambling is a victimless crime, if you go with some of these operators—which is certainly not the case,” Cylke said.
