BOSTON (AP) - Attorney General candidate Warren Tolman says he has suspended his ties to a Quincy firm that promotes technology that would make betting more appealing to young people.

Tolman had been listed as director of business development at Fast Strike Games, which says it specializes in the design of interactive games “that are fun, easy to play, and offer large prizes.”

Tolman told The Boston Globe that he halted his work for the company months ago, never drew pay, and would sever his ties to the firm if elected. An adviser to Tolman told the Globe he maintains an equity share of about 40 percent in the firm.

The attorney general enforces state gambling laws.

Maura Healey, who is also running for the Democratic nomination for attorney general, called Warren’s ties to the company “troubling.”
