An expert witness chosen may be a member of an industry organization such as the American Gaming Association (AGA), North American Gaming Regulators Association (NAGRA), or the International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR).
In the U.S., each state has its own laws regarding gambling, however illegal gambling is a federal crime. Gaming law is a set of regulations encompassing multiple areas of law including criminal law, regulatory law, constitutional law, administrative law, company law, and contract law. Native American gaming, or tribal gaming, are operations on U.S. Indian reservations where states have limited ability to regulate activities, as codified by the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988.
Matters that could require casino gaming expertise could involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement, copyright, or trade secret misappropriation. Experts in gambling could also assist in criminal or regulatory compliance issues.
