Committee on Casinos


As gaming revenue continues to grow across the United States, casino and gaming executives explore new ways to attract customers. How are these executives balancing what works now as opposed to what may work in the future? How will retail casinos adjust to the growth of online gaming, sports betting, electronic games, skill games, esports, virtual reality and other entertainment options? How will they integrate these verticals at their venues? Will these options have the same payoffs for states as the traditional slots and table games?

Fighting Illegal Gambling: How a Legal, Regulated Industry Can Win: While the size of the illegal and unregulated gambling market in the United States is subject to a variety of estimates, there is no debate as to its continued existence. States have been endeavoring for decades to battle an industry that is neither taxed nor regulated. The absence of regulation and licensing also means the absence of controls on responsible gaming and under-age gaming, among other serious issues. This panel of experts will discuss what steps can and should be taken to win this perennial war.
