Light & Wonder’s Howard Glaser has slammed the alleged behaviour of suppliers active in “terror states”.

The global head of government affairs made the comments during a panel discussion with the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) Cait DeBaun at NEXT Summit New York 2024.

“There are today, businesses that are licenced in US states that are doing business in some way – distributed content, vendor relationships – in countries where gaming is prohibited,” said Glaser.

“We’ve seen instances potentially in terror states and Iran and Russia. Some of the definitions are difficult, some are not so difficult,” he added.

Glaser hinted that these businesses could face greater enforcement action from US authorities.

Glaser continued: “As the US iGaming market matures, we fully expect that states will impose new rules to prohibit licensing of entities which do business in black markets in order to preserve the integrity of online gaming in this country.  

“At some point, companies will have to choose between doing business in regulated markets versus black markets. It’s untenable to do both.”
