The NHL announced it is considering expansion, including potentially in Las Vegas, a move that reflects a progressive view of casino gaming, said the American Gaming Association president.
Geoff Freeman said in a statement that the AGA welcomes the NHL’s consideration of Las Vegas, especially as the NHL and other professional teams already operate in tandem with casinos in many leading cities across the country
“Today’s announcement reflects a progressive view of casino gaming and marks a stark contrast with the NFL’s recent decision to force the cancellation of a fantasy sports event at a Las Vegas casino,” said Geoff Freeman.
“We applaud the NHL for considering Las Vegas – a city known for its diverse and sophisticated entertainment offerings – and recognizing that gaming is a heavily regulated, Fortune 500 industry approved by 90 percent of Americans.”
