On Wednesday, December 17, 2014, the American Gaming Association (“AGA”) announced the release of its new “By the Book” online database, which seeks to allow stakeholders, policymakers, regulators and gaming journalists to easily compare commercial gaming regulations for each state.

“Commercial gaming operators and manufacturers face a complex regulatory environment unlike any other industry,” said Geoff Freeman, AGA president and chief executive officer. “The AGA is paving the way for forward-thinking policy that encourages innovation through our ‘Get to Know Gaming’ campaign, and this interactive database allows for easy navigation and comparisons of the nuanced and varied laws and regulations governing commercial gaming.”

The release of the new online resource is in connection with the AGA’s continuing “Get to Know Gaming” campaign. It is accessible through an interactive map on its website   www.GamingBytheBook.org, and aggregates and explains the regulatory and statutory requirements for the gaming industry into five key areas: regulatory oversight; licensing; taxation; responsible gaming; and integrity.

 “From a regulator’s perspective, this is a valuable tool that, for the first time, compiles key information in one place from a trusted source,” said Mark Lipparelli, gaming consultant and former Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman. “This will help regulators across the country do their jobs more effectively and efficiently.”
