David Rebuck has been retiring from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement for several years but he can’t get out. The state’s chief regulator, he was appointed in 2011, coinciding with a change in regulatory structure in New Jersey that gave the DGE complete investigative power in that process. Since then he’s presided over the legalization of online gaming, the sports betting lawsuits that led to the PASPA decision by the Supreme Court in 2018, and becoming the first state to introduce sports betting outside of Nevada. He’s now served two governors and anticipates his retirement sometime in 2023. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the DGE offices in Atlantic City in August.

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
