Overview

The IAG series is an impartial examination of the U.S. gambling
culture. This educational series is a non-bias examination of gambling games,
the people who gamble, and those who provide them the opportunities to
gamble. It offers an historical perspective on gambling and it’s part in the
development of the United States rich and exciting past. It analyzes the gamblers
and the gambling proprietors roll in building some of the countries’ most prestigious
institutions, major cities, transportation routes, industrial complexes and recreational
facilities. It reveals facts and legends, as it explores the economic and social impact
gambling has on the communities who endorse its offerings and those who don’t.

“It’s About Gambling Volume Two,” is the tale of how and why gambling
became legalized, organized, and quickly spread across the U.S.

In the early 1900’s most gambling was outlawed in the United States.
Volume Two takes a look at when, where, how and why, the gambling laws
in the U.S. changed. The government for years prosecuted gamblers,
destroyed gambling equipment, and closed down gambling establishments.
Today the government promotes gambling, they run their own games,
and they partner with other gambling businesses.

Volume Two is your chance to hit that jackpot of knowledge.
