Topic of the Conference : To be or not to be an EU Operator: the Legal iGaming Landscape and 2018 Challenges
Description : The EU legal landscape in the context of iGaming is constantly changing. The last 10 years have seen essential changes with a radical shift from: the imposition of prohibitive rules on the advent of online gaming within specific territories on the one hand, to a wave of jurisdictions seeking to regularise the provision of igaming services within their shores, on the other.
Whether set-up in the EU or otherwise, operators are constantly affected by these changes especially when their services are offered to EU consumers. Being aware of the legal landscape, the advantages and the pitfalls is of utmost importance.
During the conference, Dr Zammit shall present the different considerations that must be made by prospective/operators seeking to establish or expand an existing business. Drawing from the experience of leaders in the iGaming market, the presentation shall provide practical insights in setting up and/or sustaining an operation in a regulated market. The regulatory advantages, pitfalls and prospective legal challenges that operators should keep in perspective in 2018 will also be discussed.
