According to an annual survey acceptance of gambling has grown as the US legal market expands.
US.- The American Gaming Association (AGA) has released research that shows that two-thirds of adults view the gaming industry as a positive economic contributor that provides high-quality jobs while 73 per cent support legalised sports betting in their state.
The AGA’s annual survey also shows that nearly seven in 10 Americans believe the gaming industry behaves responsibly, and a majority (57 per cent) believe the industry gives back to the communities where it operates.
The number of Americans who say the industry is committed to responsible gaming has increased by nearly 40 per cent since 2018.
Bill Miller, AGA president and CEO, said: “We are a committed, responsible partner and economic driver in communities across the country.”
The launch of these findings comes during Responsible Gaming Education Week, which runs September 19 to 25.
