LAS VEGAS: The size, impacts and extent of illegal gambling will be a focal point when the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States convenes for its Winter Meeting, December 8-11 at Resorts World Las Vegas.
While the extent of illegal and unregulated gambling is unknown, its existence is unquestioned. States have been endeavoring for decades to battle an industry that is neither taxed nor regulated. The absence of regulation and licensing also means the absence of controls on responsible gaming and underage gambling, among other serious issues.
The NCLGS panel session Fighting Illegal Gambling: How a Legal, Regulated Industry Can Win will be moderated by NCLGS President Jon Ford, a senator from Indiana. Expert panelists include:
- Greg Brower, Chief Global Compliance Officer, Wynn Resorts
- Danny DiRienzo, Senior Director, Government Relations, GeoComply (former US Secret Service)
- Fredric Gushin, Managing Director, Spectrum Gaming Group (former Assistant Attorney General, New Jersey)
- Christopher Hebert, Director of Gaming Division, Louisiana Attorney General’s Office
- Jeff Morris, Vice President, Public Affairs and Government Relations, Penn Entertainment
As the only gaming conferences that focuses on legislative decision-making, the NCLGS semiannual meetings attract dozens of lawmakers from across the country among the more than 300 expected attendees.
The four-day Winter Meeting will include six NCLGS Committee presentations, two general session panels, morning and luncheon keynote addresses, International Masters of Gaming Law Masterclasses, 2023 igaming legislative preview, two evening networking receptions, and off-site tours.
