Tracking regulatory updates within skill-based, social, eSports and DFS gaming challenges.
Ifrah Law firm’s Jessica Feil spoke at GiGse 2017, the nation’s largest conference of US gaming industry leaders and regulators. As moderator of the session entitled Tracking regulatory updates within skill-based, social, eSports and DFS gaming challenges, Feil was joined by panelists Susan Hensel and Kenneth L. George, Jr. to take a look at current state-by-state approaches and what impacts the new Trump administration may have on operators and their customers.—
2017 Edition of GiGse took place on April 26 - 28 at the Marriott Marquis Marina in San Diego. The event gave attendees an insight into how to monetize digital features, profile and target the current consumer base, acquire land-based users, and implement a successful social casino strategy in today’s business climate. Among the topics covered this year were implementing and monetizing skill-based gaming, virtual reality and eSports; the regulatory environment of social gaming, skill-based gaming, eSports and daily fantasy sports; and creating political cohesion.
At the end of the first day of GiGse, Jessica Feil moderated a panel consisting of Pennsylvania Gaming Control’s director of licensing and a chairman from Forest County Potawatomi. The three lead a discussion intended to give attendees a perspective on current and future legislation that is different from industry insiders and their customers. Covering all fifty states, they provided an understanding of each government’s view on different gaming channels, explain how current regulations are affecting businesses, and help form an idea of what the Trump administration will mean to the future of the industry. In addition, on the second day of GiGse, Feil served as a judge on the Launchpad panel, a Shark Tank-style competition where five start-ups pitched their ideas to the GiGse audience.
