AGEM Key Board of Directors Actions l Following a series of press reports in the US at the end of 2019, focused on the spread of unregulated gaming machines spreading in multiple states, AGEM has initiated a fact sheet in conjunction with the American Gaming Association to distinguish regulated gaming from unregulated. Tis document will serve as a tool to address the spread of unregulated machines and their negative consequences. Te initiative kicked off on February 18 with a press release entitled “AGEM and AGA Announce Campaign to Combat Unregulated Machines in the US.” Te message has the support of more than 20 of the industry’s most highly respected associations that will be working together to ultimately educate and inform legislators, law enforcement and policy makers in multiple states.
