The Top Three Challenges Facing Online Gaming Regulators
It was once said that online gaming cannot be effectively regulated. Since then, many jurisdictions around the world have shown this statement to be false. In fact, the introduction of legalized online gaming in European member states over the last decade or more as well as the recent expansion of legalized online gaming in several US States, have shown that online gaming technology provides operators with the ability to protect the interests of the customer more effectively than may be the case in the terrestrial industry. Having said that, the introduction of legalized online gaming has not been without its challenges. Different socio-economic, political and cultural landscapes have posed unique challenges to regulators around the world. During this webinar, we will look at how regulators in the UK, mainland Europe and the USA have responded to these challenges. Moderated by André Wilsenach, Executive Director of the International Center for Gaming Regulation at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, the panelists are: George Rover, Managing Partner, Princeton Global Strategies Birgitte Sand, Director, Danish Gambling Authority Sonia Wasowska, Senior Manager – Insight, UK Gambling Commission This session is part of IAGA’s free webinar series focusing on critical issues facing global gaming.
