Seton Hall University School of Law’s Gaming Law, Compliance, and Integrity Bootcamp has announced that Philip Sellinger, US Attorney for the District of New Jersey, will be part of its event on May 18 in Newark.

In his appearance at the Gaming Bootcamp, which is in its third year, Sellinger will discuss federal anti-fraud efforts in the gambling industry, passing on his knowledge as one of the Garden State’s top federal prosecutors.

Funded by the Entain Foundation US, the Gaming Bootcamp offers its attendees the ‘specific tools and best practices to prevent, detect, and mitigate corruption and fraud in gaming, and to help them identify and address behaviors that may be unlawful or unethical’.  

Martin Lycka, Trustee for Entain Foundation US and SVP for American Regulatory Affairs and Responsible Gambling for Entain, stated: “Seton Hall Law’s annual Gaming Bootcamp is a landmark event for the industry.

“As the premier gaming compliance program on the East Coast, the Bootcamp has trained a number of gaming industry professionals in best practices, compliance, and – most importantly – integrity, all of which help make the gambling industry more impactful and responsible.”

At the Gaming Bootcamp, Sellinger will explain federal law enforcement’s role in preventing and prosecuting fraud affecting the gambling industry. He will also provide attendees with the information necessary to assure they stay compliant with federal law.

“Philip Sellinger’s participation in this groundbreaking Bootcamp is yet another indicator of the rapid growth of the gaming industry: not just in consumer activity, but in the extent to which established institutions and government entities have acknowledged the validity of the gaming space,” said Bill Pascrell III Esq, Trustee for Entain Foundation US and Partner at Princeton Public Affairs Group

Joining Sellinger for a panel discussion on anti-corruption and anti-fraud laws, and enforcement will be Joseph A Hayden Jr (Partner, Pashman Stein Walder Hayden) and Intelligence Analyst Suzanne Innamorato and Special Agent Ron Pascale (both of the Integrity in Sport & Gaming Program, Transnational Org Crime Unit, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Newark Office).
