Bill Miller, president, and CEO of the American Gaming Association said: “Year after year, the commercial casino industry has reaffirmed its role as an economic powerhouse in the United States. More people than ever are experiencing the economic and social benefits of gaming in their communities, due in part to the expansion of legal sports betting across the country.”

The AGA also report also reveals that the legalization of Sports Betting, following an order from the US Supreme court which led to gambling expansion in several US states also contributed to the sector’s growth.

“Growth in the commercial gaming sector enables the industry to continue to reinvest in communities, enhance partnerships with small businesses and nonprofits and provide career opportunities for nearly two million American workers,” explained Miller.
