American Acceptance

American Acceptance

The American Gaming Association has been surveying Americans every year since the mid-1990s, evaluating perceptions about casino gaming in the U.S. The acceptance by Americans has slowly been something of a roller coaster recently, but this year hit a record high of 49 percent. More people have or will visit casinos than ever before, and the image of casino gaming as a quality entertainment provider, job producer, economic generator and improver of communities is also high. According to Bill Miller, president and CEO of the AGA, “The favorability of our industry has never been higher. As gaming expands across the U.S. and more Americans engage with our industry’s offerings, they see firsthand gaming’s positive impact on local economies and its value as a community partner. I’m committed to continuing the association’s work to translate gaming’s vast popularity into political capital, one of my top priorities for AGA.”
