The Blurred Lines between Legal, Grey and Illegal Ways to Play
The presence of so-called “grey-market machines as illegal ways to gamble continue to create legal and regulatory issues for the gaming industry, as operators and regulators grapple with how to address a wide range of alternative ways to gamble including illegal slot machines operating as “games of skill.”  In addition, there has been a considerable expansion of “free to play” od co-called “social casino” gaming options in the US markets.  This panel will provide an update on the existing US legal challenges against the gray market and evaluate what regulators and operators can do together to combat the proliferation of “gray” slot machines.  In addition the panel will update how peer-to-peer skill game contests, freemium gaming (a/k/a “social casinos”), and daily fantasy sports variants remain unregulated but have been challenged by civil litigation, and similar issues being faced around the world.

Moderated by Bill Gantz, a Partner with Duane Morris, the panelists include:

  • Daron Dorsey, Executive Director, AGEM
  • Wulf Hambach, Partner, Hambach & Hambach
  • Jeff Morris, Vice President – Public Affairs & Government Relations: PENN Entertainment
  • Michael Pollock, Senior Policy Advisor, Spectrum Gaming Group

Digital Gaming and Sports Wagering:
Emerging Fraud Risk Considerations and Trends
Digital platforms and products have become a driving force behind the growth in the iGaming and sports wagering industry.   As the mobile and online operations market for these products continues to expand into new jurisdictions, companies are at risk of increases in perpetrated fraud and new ways in which malicious actors utilize products and platforms to facilitate this.  Fraud can have significant impact on companies’ operating revenue as well as increases in regulatory and reputational risks.

This session will explore the growth of digital gaming and sports wagering operators, the use of payment processors and how different products and platforms are being used to facilitate fraud.  The panel will address profitability and fraud prevention, including managing impact on chargebacks as well as the impact of operating in multiple jurisdictions.  The panel will also address how innovative products such as NFTs, can be susceptible to fraud as well as how the risks for account takeover and identity theft through fraud rings can impact multiple patron accounts and product usage.  Finally, the panel will explore risk mitigating strategies and important compliance functions to minimize the likelihood of risks materializing or severely impacting company operations.
