Regulatory Management Counselors, P.C., Global Gaming Business Magazine, and The Innovation Group continue to join forces to present weekly informative webinars designed to help gaming companies-operators, manufacturers and suppliers-executives, employees, investors and customers navigate the "new normal" as the world struggles through and emerges from the devastating effects of the coronavirus pandemic. The series now includes three webinars, with a fourth webinar entitled “Moving Forward: iGaming in the Covid-19 Era” scheduled for Thursday, May 14 at 2:00 p.m. ET. While most of the gaming industry has been devastated by the Covid-19 crisis, one part of the business is thriving. With players barred from casinos, online gaming has taken a giant leap forward. Not only does it provide continuing revenue for casino companies in times such as these, but states collect taxes where none existed before. But will the bloom fade when the crisis is over, or will states and jurisdictions rush to fill the void left by the continued absence of iGaming? Experts will discuss the long-term viability of online gaming and how the Covid-19 crisis has awakened some of its most subtle critics. The session will be moderated by Roger Gros, publisher of Global Gaming Business Magazine and will feature three panelists: Sue Schneider, VP, Growth & Strategy/Americas, Sports Betting Community (SBC), Dermot Surfit, CEO of GAN, and Kresimer Spajic, CEO of Hard Rock Interactive. Interested parties can register for the upcoming free webinar here.

The first webinar, entitled “Beyond CARES: How the Relief Bill Helps the Industry and Employees and Where it May Fall Short,” was moderated by Robert Russell, Gaming Analyst at Regulatory Management Counselors, P.C. and featured perspectives from casino operations, the financial market and impacts, and human resources, including Matt Sodl, Anthony Sanfilippo and Jennifer Martinez offering their thoughts and commentary. A summary of the webinar was previously reported in Volume 26, Issue 16 of the Michigan Gaming Newsletter.
