The countdown to this year’s North American Gaming Regulators Association (NAGRA) continues, where delegates can look forward to working together with agencies that regulate gaming activities and participate in a forum for the mutual exchange of regulatory information and techniques.

Taking place from June 4 to 5, 2018, at the AT&T Executive Education & Conference Centre, University of Texas, Austin, the conference has a packed agenda of speakers read to debate a wide range of regulatory issues.

Unsurprisingly, the two-day event kicks off with a plenary session on ‘Sports Betting in North America’ followed by three breakout sessions. Nevada Gaming Control Board’s Creighton Felt will tackle illegal bookmaking investigations and Michael Lupton of Dickinson Wright will address ‘Regulating Sports Wagering – US/Canadian Perspective’. The third session sees Keith Whyte of the National Council on Problem Gambling examine ‘Social Casinos & Responsible Gaming: Challenges & Opportunities’.

And in a nod to industry diversity, on the opening day agenda there will be a session dedicated to Global Gaming Women, presented by Christie Eickelman (pictured) of Gaming Laboratories International and Ann Simmons Nicholson of the Simmons Group.

Over the course of the conference, attendees will be addressed on a whole host of regulatory topics related to internet gaming, tribal gaming, lottery, money laundering, databases, skill-based gaming, security and more.
