Cooper Levenson Partner and iGaming attorney Lynne Levin Kaufman will moderate the ‘iGaming – Where Do We Go From Here:’ panel at the 18th Annual East Coast Gaming Congress and iGaming Institute (ECGC). ECGC is the gaming industry’s longest-running conference and will take place May 19-20, 2014, at the Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. One of its key sessions, ‘iGaming-Where Do We Go From Here?’, will take place on Monday, May 19, 2014 from 4:45-5:45 p.m.
“While Internet gambling is well underway in New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada, these states represent just the tip of the iceberg,” according to session moderator Lynne Kaufman. “It is certain that more states will step forth this year and next; what is less certain is how they will do it.”
Kaufman will moderate a panel of iGaming experts – from regulators to operators to legislators – who will examine the critical questions that will shape this fast emerging industry on the East Coast.
· – Who will be the operators of iGaming in each state?
· – How will revenue be taxed?
· – How do state lotteries figure in the mix?
· – What regulatory limits will be in place?
· – What games will be offered?
· – Is it too late for a federal solution?
Speakers include Michael Ellen, director, Licensing & Strategy, Alderney Gambling Control Commission; Representative Helene Keeley, State of Delaware; Senator Raymond Lesniak, New Jersey State Senate; Jon Porter, president, Porter Gordon Silver Communications; and Gil White, partner, Herzog Fox & Neeman.
The East Coast Gaming Congress featuring the iGaming Institute is organized and produced by Spectrum Gaming Group, an independent research and regulatory consulting firm, Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law, SOSH Architects and Lockton Companies, the world’s largest privately owned insurance brokerage firm.
