”Safe Gambling” is a new term used in the industry and is a possible replacer for the notion ”responsible gambling”. While the responsible gambling focuses on studying and fighting the negative effects of excessive gambling practice, the broader concept of ”safe gambling”, also contains the prevention area. IT security, compliance is also a huge aspect of the term.

We are implementing a panel discussion to the busy agenda of #PragueGamingSummit3 which will focus on Safe Gambling, IT Security, CRM, AML, KYC and the use of AI in Responsible Gambling.

The panel discussion is titled as “(Horus Session) Safe Gambling – IT security and AML / KYC” and will be moderated by industry veteran, Pieter Remmers (CEO, Assissa), who will focus on bringing out the most recent information from the panelist.

Confirmed speakers of the panel are Martin Stöfler (Co-Founder, OSM Solutions), Dr. Manfred Galdes (Partner at ARQ Group Malta), Francesco Baranca (General Secretary at Federbet AISBL), Kim Mouridsen (Founder at Mindway AI), and last but not least, Alina B Gleiss (EMEA Sales Manager at Zendesk).

CEEGC 2019

Emerging CEE jurisdictions (compliance panel discussion) moderated by Rita McClelland (GamblingCompliance) at CEEGC2019 Budapest

Senior Legal and Research Manager at GamblingCompliance to moderate regional panel discussion at CEEGC 2019 Budapest.

Industry media outlets are always reporting how the Hungarian Government is keeping a tight leash around the gambling industry in the country, however, this doesn’t mean that the industry hasn’t shown developments and is still considered as an attractive market for many operators and software providers. While online licenses are still granted to land-based casino concessionaires, but that might change in the near future. You can hear why, by attending CEEGC Budapest and paying attention to the CEE regional briefing.

The case is different in the neighboring Slovakia, where the new gaming law is in full force. Starting in 2019, private domestic companies, as well as companies from the European Union, are able to apply for online gambling licenses. There have plenty of operators jumping in on the opportunity and applying for licenses, however, the outcome and success of the new legislation is still writing mode.

On the other hand, there have been quite a lot of news around another emerging Central and Eastern European jurisdictions, and that is Poland. It has been reported that Poland’s sports betting turnover jumped 55% in 2018 and it is most likely to jump further in 2019 with all the new licenses that have been granted to international operators.

All three market updates (Hungary, Slovakia, and Poland) and much more around investment possibilities for operators and software providers will be discussed during the “Emerging CEE jurisdictions” compliance panel discussion, which will be joined by leading experts from the region at CEEGC Budapest.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Rita McClelland, Senior Legal and Research Manager at GamblingCompliance, who will ask the burning questions the industry has for Ewa Lejman (Head of Polish Desk at WH Partners), Gábor Helembai (Senior Associate at Bird & Bird Budapest) and last but not least, Dr. Robert Skalina (Senior Advisor at WH Partners).

The 4th edition of the yearly Central and Eastern European Gaming Conference will take place on the 24th of September at the Ritz-Carlton Budapest, and provides a unique opportunity of learning and networking with the gambling industry in the CEE and Balkans region via the CEEGC platform which is committed to bringing together industry shareholders and government officials from the region on a yearly base.
