Casinos are digging their own graves with their current approach to regulating iGaming, writes former Nevada regulator Randall Sayre.
The US Congress is currently debating whether we, as a nation, are once again drifting into isolationism as we wrestle with answers to increasing global challenges. The current headline-getter is the Middle East, but tomorrow we will be back to China or Russia or whoever. Politicians generally seek a safe corner regarding commitment, at the expense of international affairs moving on without us. One will experience this paradigm at all levels of elected and appointed representation down to the local school board.
This ‘safe corner’ environment is a primary reason for the confusion and lack of progress effecting iGaming legislation in the US. This lack of progress is exasperated by fragmented commercial interests with shallow arguments, protectionist attitudes and deep pockets to fund lobbying efforts.
