AGA launches database on US gaming info

(US).- As part of their campaign "Get to Know Gaming", the American Gaming Association (AGA) is set to promote the value of the industry and combat outdated stereotypes regarding gaming, and recently went live with a comprehensive online database called "By the Book" which expounds on regulatory information with detailed, interactive and easy to use info on the gaming statues and regulations of all US states.

T

he information covers five key areas in US gambling: regulatory oversight, licensing, taxation, responsible gaming and integrity. Each category is very detailed and offers specific information regarding licensing organizations, taxation rates and allocations on different games and info regarding self-exclusion programs, among other information. By the Book will be the ultimate up-to-date database on US gaming regulation. Gaming Industry's Impact on US Revenue Infographics on the new database display the impact of the gaming industry on job opportunities across the US, showing that the industry alone supports more than 1.7 million American jobs. According to the site, the gaming industry contributes annually USD 38 billion in tax revenues to local, state and federal governments. As a whole the US gaming industry generates nearly USD 240 billion each year. Situation at iGaming Regulated States While most of the information on the By the Book database comes from land- based casinos, it is also interesting to check out information regarding the three states which have online gambling regulation. Nevada is obviously the overall leading state in terms of annual economic impact with USD 53 billion . In New Jersey, gaming supports 55,361 jobs paying more than USD 2.9 billion in wages. Delaware's sole three commercial casinos contribute USD 726.1 million, an impressive number for a meager number of casinos and that's with iGaming having yet truly made animpact.
