On May 16-17 in Atlantic City a panel of gaming industry experts will come together at the 16th annual East Coast Gaming Congress at the Revel Resort. The future of online gaming in recent months has gained a new perspective with the opinion change by the DoJ on the legalization of internet gambling.
For over 16 years the ECGC has brought together gaming industry experts to help identify the already mature markets and new challenges facing emerging markets. Lloyd D. Levenson, CEO of Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law, a co-organizer and co-producer of the event, will moderate the panel, “Understanding the I-Gaming Frenzy“, sponsored by GTECH G2.
In the wake of the US Department of Justice late last year, gaming companies – both domestic and international – and some states are accelerating plans to provide Internet gambling the moment it is deemed legal. Online gaming could forever change the gaming-industry dynamic, as state lotteries prepare to offer their products via the Internet and free-play social networking gaming sites such as Zynga are preparing to become bona fide gambling companies by converting to real-money play. Our panel of experts will provide their insights on the potential, the expectations and the realities of Internet gambling.
More than 600 gaming operators, equipment manufacturers, regulators, attorneys, architects, analysts, public officials, investors and other gaming-related professionals are attending the East Coast Gaming Congress.
