The regulated U.S. gaming industry is as diverse as the states and communities in which it operates, but few topics of debate have been as fiery and divisive as the proliferation of so-called skill games. In Pennsylvania, skill games have taken center stage, and the battle between casinos, law enforcement and skill game manufacturers has only grown more fierce and time goes on. In an effort to make sense of the issue and the potential pathways it may follow, longtime gaming attorney and former Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board regulator Joseph Grad breaks down the legal questions surrounding the debate as well both sides’ perspectives. Grad spoke with GGB Managing Editor Jess Marquez via Zoom in February.
