AGA speaks on Illinois legalizing sports betting

28 Jun 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The American Gaming Association released the following statement after Gov. Pritzker signed a bill to legalize sports betting in Illinois:

“Today, Illinois became the 17th U.S. jurisdiction to legalize sports betting, joining a growing number of states that have taken action since the Supreme Court deemed PASPA unconstitutional last year,” said Bill Miller, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. “As the state rolls out its sports betting framework, it’s critical that Illinois sports teams and other newcomers to the gaming business follow the lead of the state’s licensed gaming operators in advancing responsible gaming practices that ensure protections for consumers, bets and game integrity.”
