The Future of Online Gaming Opportunities in North America
Since the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit upheld a lower court decision allowing the continuation of online lottery ticket sales, determining that these sales do not violate the 1961 Wire Act and setting aside a Department of Justice 2018 Wire Act Opinion that created widespread confusion about the future of online gaming, much speculation has circled around future opportunities for online gaming expansion throughout North America. This decision, coupled with an increase in potential online and sports betting legislation arising out of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on gaming industry revenues and related state taxes, has paved the way for a rapid expansion of all forms of online wagering, creating numerous opportunities for existing and new entrants into the market.

Featuring experts from the online, land-based and online content and technology provider sectors, this panel will provide an up-to-date look at the current state of online wagering throughout North America, will explore the pending opportunities being discussed in state legislatures across the country, and evaluate what the future online gaming space might entail.

Moderated by Adam Berger, a Partner with Duane Morris, the panelists will be announced shortly.


Unanticipated Legal Vulnerabilities: How the Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic is Unmasking New Areas of Risk
As we rapidly approach the one-year mark of the current COVID-19 pandemic, organizations within the global gaming world continue to confront  a wide range of legal concerns and situations. Functioning in a constantly shifting reality where legal experts still face heightened cyber/data privacy threats caused by remote work, must consider adjusting business interruption insurance policies and rarely-used force majeure clauses, implement new rules and policies for work environments and interactions with customers and more, the ongoing pandemic has both revealed numerous areas of risk that have changed the way many gaming companies are operating and has created a level of uncertainty of what additional risks the future might reveal. This session will begin by evaluating several new best practices that have emerged as a result and discuss how industry can better prepare for the future and the threat of another similar situation.
