Internet sweepstakes cafes generate more than $10 billion per year with games that resemble traditional slot and video poker machines, but the cafes lack regulation. The absence of regulation has prompted the American Gaming Association (AGA) to urge all states to prohibit the cafes. Hear from Judy Patterson, senior vice president and executive director of the AGA, on why the association opposes Internet sweepstakes cafes and what states can do to take the necessary steps toward prohibiting them. These under-the-radar businesses operate without the accountability of normal gaming establishments, how do you believe they should be controlled? Listen to the show and weigh in on this hot topic.
