Key aspects of the Corporate Transparency Act
On January 1, 2024, the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) and its implementing regulations become effective.  With the requirement that entities falling under the definition of “reporting companies” disclose information as their beneficial owners, there are many questions as to the requirements and the exceptions to these requirements.  Although the twenty-three (23) categories of entities exempted from the reporting requirements will permit many, if not all, licensed gaming companies relief from these reporting requirements, the information database resulting from the filing of Beneficial Ownership Information Reports (BOI Reports) will provide law enforcement with a significant amount of information.  In this webinar, we will provide background on the CTA, the key reporting requirements for entities under the CTA and the potential impact of the CTA on the gaming industry, especially the investigative process of gaming regulators.

Moderated by Robert Kim, a Partner with Ballard Spahr, the panelists include:

  • Luke Rippee, Deputy Chief - Investigations Division, Nevada Gaming Control Board

Do advertising bans contribute to responsible gaming (RG)? 
There is a worldwide trend to ban gambling advertising supposedly with the intention of reducing consumption and, therefore, reducing cases of problem gambling. However, studies on the matter show that a simple ban or misguided restriction does not generate the desired results yet has a disproportionate impact on the industry and the media. Moreover, experts in the field of RG suggest that terminating the advertising of legal gambling completely can also give a boost to illegal gambling since it will be only unlicensed operators who promote their products. The truth is that, instead of promoting bans that could cause more harm than good, RG policies should be composed of comprehensive measures by both regulators and operators, such as educational RG advertising campaigns, sound regulation, technological tools (AI), among many others.


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.
