About Us

PGRI Public Gaming Research Institute

Paul Jason & Suan Burke Jason of Public Gaming Research Institute.

Our website www.publicgaming.com, DAILY News Digest and weekly electronic newsletter (dubbed ‘Morning Report’) have changed dramatically over the past year. Check in frequently because the news is updated daily.

Public Gaming has been dedicated to the support and growth of lottery organizations all around the world since 1971 when our founders Duane and Doris Burke founded PGRI Public Gaming Research Institute.

Context and Commentary: There is lots of news, but little insight into what it means. Public Gaming adds the background, perspective and context that helps you make sense of it all.

In Depth interviews and topical analyses: Guidance from industry leaders and analyses from legal and political experts prepare us for the future.

Serious exploration of issues like how gaming operators are adjusting to rapidly changing player lifestyles and game styles and preferences, what’s happening in the public policy, regulatory, and legislative fronts all around the world, trend lines driving our industry, how to penetrate emerging markets and continue to engage mature markets, and much more ...

Archives and searchable databases: News and other stories are organized to enable you to quickly locate items by author, topic, and date.

Last but not least, Public Gaming delivers by far the most comprehensive and well-organized on-line general news and information resource in the gaming industry. And this is just the beginning …

In addition to all the above, we truly are on a mission and we appreciate your support. This industry is changing in quite dramatic ways. It is entirely possible that over the next 5 years, the macro-economic structure of the gaming industry will be wholly transformed. Public Policy is being formulated right now that will have profound and long-term implications for our industry and the public. We are referring to issues like monopoly versus free-market competition, free and open borders versus national right to self-determination, international regulatory policy pertaining to Internet and Mobile gaming, and much more. We do not presume to have the answers. We are, however, dedicated to giving a voice to the insights and perspectives of leaders of the industry; and to contribute to the body of knowledge that will hopefully inform and enlighten the shapers of public policy, the leaders of our industry, and the public whom we all serve.
