iGaming North America hosts closed session for regulators & policy makers

donotdisturbA closed session for government regulators, lottery officials and public policy makers – “Balancing the Needs of Consumers, Governments and Licensed Operators in a Regulated Framework” – will be taking place at the iGaming North America conference on the 14th April 2015 at 9.30am. 

The optimal goals of iGaming regulation are to protect consumers and generate valuable tax revenues and jobs. But a vibrant industry can be compromised by unnecessarily burdensome regulations that clash with commercial interests.

A 12-year veteran of the industry will offer specific examples of what he describes as the ‘good’, the ‘bad’ and the ‘ugly’ in terms of regulated frameworks. This interactive session will offer government representatives the chance to explore real world scenarios and determine how best to build a system that achieves the core objectives of all stakeholders.

“Any regulator or policy maker interested in understanding the do’s and don’ts of regulating online gaming will find this session informative,” said moderator Susan Hensel, Director of Licensing, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

“You will hear industry experts discuss their real life online gaming experiences as we explore how to create an effective regulatory environment that protects the public interest while growing a successful marketplace.”

The expert speakers include:

  • Jeffrey Haas, Group Director, Poker, bwin.party digital entertainment
  • Anna Sainsbury, CEO, GeoComply
  • Susan Hensel, Director of Licensing, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board
