Day 1
Registration will be open all day to pick up your badges.
ECGC is a two-day conference that includes the NexGen Gaming Forum, which will focus on emerging forms of gaming such as online, fantasy sports, e-sports, skill-based gaming, etc.
Having proven it is more than a passing trend, esports has evolved into a major industry, with cities from Katowice to Las Vegas clamoring to host the biggest events. Casino host cites – and casinos themselves – want a big piece of the action. Is esports just another form of sports entertainment like boxing or MMA? Or could it become a major driver of sports-betting revenue? Professionals from both esports and the gaming industry discuss the synergies.
Bitcoin. Blockchain. PayPal. Venmo. In-play sports betting. iGaming. Credit cards. Debit cards. Cross-border cashouts. As payment technologies advance at a fast pace, is the ever-expanding legal gambling industry keeping pace? How do gaming providers balance what consumers want with what technology allows? Experts from both industries discuss the possibilities, the expectations and the legal and regulatory issues that arise within an industry that operates under different rules for each state.
Although 42 states have some form of casino gambling, almost all of them have been reluctant to authorize online gaming – despite the robust – and still-growing – results in New Jersey since its launch more than five years ago. At the same time, states are clamoring for sports betting, which in order to reach its potential must include the online/mobile component. Will the rush to legalize sports betting also usher in the long-awaited world of online casino gaming? Experts from both the gaming and betting sectors examine the future of igaming and betting.
