  • The leading conference in the CEE region has returned and brought the usual great vibes for the participants

Last week, the major stakeholders of the gaming and gambling industry of the CEE region, have gathered in Prague for the 6th edition of the PRAGUE GAMING SUMMIT.

The summit was supported by sponsors such Tom Horn Gaming, nanocosmos, Global Bet, and Nordic Gambling.

The participants of the conference had the opportunity to dive into licensing and business-related information from the Czech and Polish markets with top experts sharing their insights.

Jakub Kolomicenko – Senior Compliance Officer at Kaizen Gaming, Jan Urbanec – CEO at Endorphina, and Vojtech Chloupek – Partner at Bird & Bird Czechia, have presented the Czech market and the panel was moderated by Mgr. Petr Kozák, MBA – IFGR Lawyer and Secretary-General.

The panelists have stressed on the fact that the requirements of the Czech legislator are not competitive and often cause headaches that drag down the legal industry and give the opportunity for the black (unlicensed) market to grow.

The compliance related discussions continued with a focus on the Polish gaming and gambling industry where Anna Wietrzyńska-Ciołkowska – HEAD OF THE GAMES AND GAMBLING PRACTICE AT DWF POLAND and Ewa Lejman-Widz – Attorney at Law, Tax Advisor, Head of Polish Desk at WH Partners, have answered some of the burning questions that operators are asking daily.

The conference continued with a keynote presentation about Live Games, which emphasized on how operators can ensure a high-quality user experience with live streaming and was presented by Oliver Lietz – CEO at nanocosmos.

Just before the traditional fire-side chat which was hosted again by Dr. Simon Planzer – Partner at PLANZER LAW, and had Nadiya Attard – CCO at Relax Gaming as its guest, the participants had the opportunity to dive into the latest updates about Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway in the Nordic Updates series that is sponsored by Nordic Gambling.

The session was joined by Minna Ripatti – Founding partner and legal advisor at Legal Gaming in Finland , Alexander Mollan – Senior Lawyer at Brækhus Advokatfirma DA, Gustaf Hoffstedt – Secretary-General at the Swedish Trade Association for Online Gamblingand was moderated by Petter Fagrell – Senior Legal Advisor at Nordic Gambling.

Right after the complimentary lunch, the participants had the chance to hear from Tony He – AML expert at Sentinels, about the vital role of Fintech and the gaming industry.

Just before the conference program turned towards Responsible Gaming and the sports betting industry, a One-on-One session between a newly licensed operator in Czechia and a newly licensed game provider had brought a case-study about licensing in the jurisdiction. The two speakers and industry also industry experts, have pointed out the fact that the biggest current issue in Czechia is adding new providers, which is currently reported as a painful process. This coming from two companies that just went through the certification process and just secured their operation licenses.

The Responsible Gaming panel focused on an important topic, which is the consequences of not adding an RG program to an operation can damage the sustainability of a business in the gaming and gambling industry.

The session was joined by Šimon Vincze – Safer and Sustainable gambling lead at Casino Guru and Panagiotis Skyrlas – Head of Information Security & Compliance – Group DPO at Kaizen Gaming, and was moderated by Dan Iliovici – Vice President at Rombet.

For such an engaging event where the audience was more interactive than ever, the final session was one for the historic books. The session titled as “Online sports betting & Esports in the CEE region, where are we at?” was joined by industry veterans such as Marek Suchar – Head of Partnerships at Oddin.gg, Gal Ehrlich – CEO at BETER, Ondrej Šilhavý – Senior Sales Manager at Bayes Esports and last but not least Robert Dowling – Chief Commercial Officer at GlobalBet. The historical session was moderated by Lazar Miučin – CEO and Co-Founder of iGaming Advisor.

Once the panel discussions have ended, the participants were invited to unwind and network during a boat cruise in Prague.

Prague Gaming Summit is very close to our hearts here at #hipthers and each year adds another special chapter to the history of the event. We are already looking to set the dates for 2023 and we are going to grow it even bigger by co-hosting it with TECH Meetup CEE. Special thanks to all the cool people that joined us on the 21st of June and we are grateful to our sponsors for supporting the event,” stated Zoltán Tűndik, Co-Founder and Head of Business at Hipther Agency.
