Key Issues For Licensing and Use of Official
and Unofficial Sports Data in the United States
In the four years since the repeal of PASPA opened the door for US sports betting expansion, sports betting has exploded and is generating staggering revenue with seemingly no end in sight despite numerous hurdles that operators, regulators and other stakeholders have had to overcome. Existing and new sportsbetting operators face challenges due to differing requirements and regulations concerning the use of official data which exist from state to state, and varying approaches toward licensing being taken by league owners, operators and other stakeholders. Featuring an impressive lineup of sportsbetting experts, this session will discuss the current state of US sports betting and data, challenges posed by varying requirements for official data including its availability in real time, mandates for Tier 2 wagers, exclusive license powers granted by leagues, the outlook for viability of unofficial data, and the unsettled US legal landscape for antitrust and intellectual property issues as applied to state mandates and exclusive licenses.

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.

Moderated by Bob Boyle, a Senior Manager with Ernst & Young's Assurance and Forensic / Integrity Services, the panelists include:
