nline gambling is the subject of much controversy internationally, as are the associated payments systems and operators. Online gaming and payments systems are notoriously difficult to regulate and, as a result, are subject to intense scrutiny.
The recent ‘Black Friday’ events in the US and their impact on payment processors, internet gaming operators and governments worldwide – most notably France and Alderney – illustrate the interdependence between payments systems and internet gambling operators, and highlighted the need for a clear, consistent approach to online gambling payment regulation.
The Gambling Payments Intensive will provide comprehensive and global coverage of issues affecting the gambling payments industry on business, regulatory and financial levels, and address the challenges authorities face when attempting to regulate them.
Confirmed speakers so far: Darren Hodder, Fraud Consulting Director, Marcos el Charif, Harris Hagan Senior Commercial Associate and Bartosz Andruzaniec, Allen & Overy Senior Associate.
