The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufactures as well as the American Gaming Association announced their new partnership in order to combat as well as highlight the rapidly growing spread of illegal gaming equipment within the state of Texas. With the estimated 100,000 to 150,000 “eight-liner” as well as illegal slot machines that are now present in the state of Texas, this state has become the most current example of illegal gaming activity within the United States.
Over the course of several months, the Association of Gaming Equipment has been shining a light on the vast, dangerous illegal gambling activity that has been running rampant across the country, and very few areas exemplify this thriving nature of illegal gambling better than the state of Texas, where the AGA has found hundreds of thousands of these black market gambling machines in operation currently.
The Association of Gaming Equipment represents the most respected licensed as well as regulated gaming suppliers within the world, and they are no longer remaining silent on the subject of the current environment of widespread illegal gaming within the state of Texas. On behalf of their 140 member companies who actually supply such gaming equipment and technology to those regulated markets that are around the world, they are asking for the law enforcement within the state of Texas, from the smallest communities to the highest levels located in Austin, Texas to enforce their state’s existing laws that ultimately forbid this kind of uncontrolled gaming that is continuing to spread.
According a recent article as well as media reports, this illegal gambling activity has been taking place in various areas such as windowless tire shops as well as tractor-trailers parked along the sides of busy highways.
