AGA Adds Sports Betting to Conduct Code

How strong codes of conduct can better protect an organization

The American Gaming Association (AGA) scored a big advocacy win earlier this year when a Supreme Court ruling legalized sports betting across the country.

And now that the rules around sports betting have been cleared up at the federal level, AGA is stepping in with some guidelines of its own on the issue. As part of its annual Responsible Gaming Education Week, the association added provisions related to sports betting to its Code of Conduct for Responsible Gaming.

Among other things, the code recommends that minors not be allowed unattended on a casino floor; that alcohol be served in moderation; that visibly intoxicated people not be allowed to gamble; that information related to responsible gaming be made available to the public; that advertising encourage responsible gaming, not target minors and be in good taste. Beyond the recommendations, members are called upon to follow state and federal law.
