The iGaming Cold War: Casinos, Lotteries and Social Gaming

Internet gambling is legal in many parts of the world and remains one of the most profitable e-commerce activities, despite a crackdown by authorities in the United States at both federal and state levels. While certain casino operators and suppliers are fighting for a federal solution, many state lotteries and charities are monetizing the Internet space and setting the stage for a war over equity and market share. U.S. law in this area is both risky and complex. Intermediaries such as payment services, banks, publishers, and Internet portals all face risks under U.S. law for providing services that are used by illegal gambling businesses. At the same time, there is considerable confusion about the types of Internet gambling that are legal and illegal in the United States, making the risks and opportunities for businesses difficult to understand.

This OnDemand Webinar will help those responsible for risk management and compliance understand what risks confront gambling, lottery, and similar businesses operating on the Internet, and the significant business opportunities that remain in areas such as state lotteries, charitable fundraising, and interstate wagering on horse racing. It will explain the complex web of federal and state laws governing Internet gambling, requirements on payment services to stop processing payments for illegal gambling transactions and other risks faced by intermediaries such as banks, Internet advertisers, publishers and portals. Finally, this program will give further insight into the growing tension between casinos, lotteries, and social gammers as each positions itself to capture market share on an intrastate basis, highlighting areas that are legal and can be pursued with minimal risk.
