The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM), a non-profit international trade organization representing regulated suppliers of casino equipment and technology, has stated the following due to the current situation of the gaming industry in Mexico:

&

ldquo;One of the most regulated and controlled industries in the world is gaming, and this is one reason why we support the project of the Federal Gaming Law that is currently waiting for approval at the Senate. The Federal Gaming Law will create an updated legal framework that can regulate, order, control and monitor this economic activity in the most efficient and accurate manner, resulting in greater security to investors, users and stakeholders in general.”

“We recognize that currently the only establishments that can operate machines and gaming equipment are the locations authorized by the Ministry of the Interior (SEGOB) through its General Gaming Directorate. The commitment of AGEM and all of its members is and will be to install and operate gaming equipment only through licensees, operators and establishments previously authorized by SEGOB.”

“We are against the supply of any gaming device to individuals as well as installation in public places that are not expressly approved or recognized by SEGOB, especially in pharmacies, grocery stores, stationery supply stores, bus stations, public markets, party halls and any other place that are not expressly authorized since they belong to illegal gaming activities that threaten the Mexican population and are harmfully accessible by children.”

“The equipment installed by members of AGEM in Mexico and around the world has the international certification of specialized laboratories in the gaming industry in order to fully comply with both the highest technological standards and international security, as with the applicable regulations and requirements established by the competent authorities.”

“AGEM and all its members have the obligation to promote responsible gaming and prevent and condemn illegal gambling. Therefore, we actively participate with non-governmental and educational organizations to promote a healthy environment for the gaming industry and we fully support the authorities in all countries in their battles against illegal gambling.”
