A panel of state gaming regulators will discuss the challenges they face in keeping up with new technology at the East Coast Gaming Congress, September 21-23 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.
There is a continuous influx of new games, new ways to play those games, and new ways to transact money, and gaming operators and suppliers want to be able to use the new technology right away. Ultimately, state gaming regulators determine whether – or how fast – such technology can be offered to the consumer. Are the regulators doing this quickly enough? Do they have the physical and human resources needed to keep pace in the rapidly evolving gaming industry?
Cyrus Pitre, Chief Enforcement Counsel of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, will moderate “State Regulators: Keeping Their Promise to Keep Pace?,” a panel discussion that will include:
- Stephen Cook, Chief Counsel, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board
- Cathy Judd-Stein, Chair, Massachusetts Gaming Commission
- John Martin, Executive Director, Maryland Lottery
- David Rebuck, Director, New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement
- June E. Taylor, Chair, Ohio Casino Control Commission
The conference will kick off with an opening reception on Wednesday. There also will be three keynote addresses during the conference and a networking cocktail party on Thursday evening.
Additional panel discussions will focus on issues facing the industry, including:
- Sports Betting: Which Model is Working Best?
- Is Gaming Growing Responsibly?
- The Best Things in Gaming Right Now Are …
- The Northeast Cauldron
- Whither Igaming?
- Creating One Industry: Lotteries, Gaming
