The shifting landscape of gaming in the Philadelphia region


Casinos are not the sure bet they used to be.

In Atlantic City, four have shut this year and another is threatened. The three in Delaware are struggling with competition from neighboring states, and Pennsylvania is wavering on awarding a license for a second gaming hall in Philadelphia.

To help us get a sense of the shifting landscape, we turned to Geoff Freeman, CEO of the American Gaming Association, in town for a convention.  He spoke with Eugene Sonn,  WHYY audio news director.
