It was only a matter of time before the American Gaming Association withdrew its support for online gambling in the US.

The AGA’s withdrawal of support is a big blow to the pro-online gambling forces. Couple this with dismal revenue figures coming out of NJ, NV and DE and the growing support from lawmakers and others for a ban, the future does not look bright for the pro-online gambling forces.
Never count Mr. Adelson out. People have tried before and they have failed. Looks like he is back and getting stronger by the day.
