November 22, 2013: Adelson Goes On The Record

Soon after the launch of online casinos in New Jersey (and Delaware), Adelson takes to the pages of Forbes. The billionaire political donor says he’s “willing to spend whatever it takes” to stop online gambling.

“My moral standard compels me to speak out on this issue because I am the largest company by far in the industry and I am willing to speak out. I don’t see any compelling reason for the government to allow people to gamble on the Internet and nobody has ever explained except for the two companies whose special interest is going to be served if there is gaming on the Internet, Caesars and MGM.”
