Responsible Gambling in the Technology World
With the increased reliance on technology to get us through our daily lives, customers expect the gaming industry to embrace such advances. With new and emerging technologies filtering in to the gaming space, regulators must be equipped to understand these innovative developments and the measures that can be undertaken to help protect the patron. The key takeaway from this presentation is to get a glance at a more innovative gaming landscape, looking into areas such as skill-based games, eSports, account wagering, daily fantasy sports, and virtual reality gaming and trying to get a little more comfortable with adapting gaming regulations and responsible gaming protections to these technologies.
