ATLANTIC CITY, NJ, Sept. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The limited igaming rollout in the United States stands in stark contrast to the sports betting rollout. While 30 jurisdictions launched sports betting in the 3.5 years after the Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in 2018 – including 21 that offered digital betting – only six states launched the Internet gambling since its launch in 2013. One of the reasons states are cautious about igaming may be their concern for their casinos. Is such concern justified? Why the slow deployment of igaming? Will the rapid adoption of digital sports betting accelerate the adoption of igaming?

Sherry Amos, Director of Spectrum Gaming Hospitality Group, will host a panel discussion on these issues at the East Coast Gaming Congress, September 21-23 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Joining her on the “Whither Igaming” panel are:

  • Howard Glaser, Global Head of Government Affairs and Legislative Counsel, Light & Wonder
  • Jeffrey Millar, Commercial Director, North America, Evolution
  • Richard Schwartz, President and CEO, Rush Street Interactive
  • Luisa Woods, Vice President, Marketing, Games and Entertainment, Delaware North

The conference will begin with an opening reception on Wednesday. There will also be three keynote addresses at the conference and a networking cocktail on Thursday evening.

Additional roundtables will focus on issues facing the industry, including:

  • Sports betting: which model works best?
  • Is the game developed responsibly?
  • The best things in the game right now are…
  • State regulators: keeping their promise to keep pace?
  • The Northeast Cauldron
  • Create a single industry: lotteries, games
