In Their Own Words: the Regulatory Perspective on Current Issues
At nearly every gaming conference, industry experts share their thoughts on the minutiae of what gaming regulators, think, say and do. In this session, we’ll instead ask top regulators to share their thoughts on important issues like whether standardisation or harmonisation is all but a dream for those managing multi-jurisdictional compliance. They’ll consider how they can work together with industry and other regulators to improve gambling regulation in 2023 and beyond and discuss the obstacles they face when trying to keep pace with innovation and technology advancements. Our distinguished panel will also look at key trends they’ve followed over the past 12 months and consider what the next 12 months might hold.

Moderated by Bill Downey, a Shareholder with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, the panelists include:

  • Marcus Fructer, Administrator, Illinois Gaming Control Board
