The conference will take place from April 27-29, and will feature three days of panel discussions, seminars, and sessions, featuring some of the top minds and the top talent in the online gaming industry.
Here is a look at the can’t-miss panels at GiGse 2016.
Following a keynote address, Day 1 of GiGse will kick off with a panel of DFS gurus discussing the current regulation situation in various states. This panel has a little bit of everything, from lawyers to industry folks, as well as OPR’s Chris Grove.
Immediately following the DFS panel, GiGse attendees will get to hear about another emerging vertical, skill-based gaming. On this panel a supplier, an operator, and a regulator will discuss whether or not these games represent the future of the casino floor.
With representatives from all three of the current online gaming states (Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware) as well as several other former and current regulators and experts, this forum style session should give GiGse goers a solid understanding on the current state of online gaming expansion in the U.S., particularly in the possible second wave states of Pennsylvania, New York, and California.
In addition to DFS and online gaming, there is a lot of buzz around the possible legalization of sports betting in the United States. During this panel, discussion experts in the field will offer some insight on when and how it might happen.
As much as we look at online gaming expansion and DFS as prospective game changers, nothing would have a greater impact than the legalization of sports betting in this country.
The latest on “regulatory progress and tribal adoption of technologies, social, mobile, iGaming, fantasy sports, eSports, Snapchat …. and other innovations” will be the focus of the breakfast briefing hosted by Pechanga.net’s Victor Rocha.
Online lottery arguably has a greater foothold in the United States than regulated online gambling.
Whether that momentum can translate to regulated online gambling is an interesting question, one that will no doubt come up given the presence of the Michigan Lottery’s Digital Products Director on the panel, as Michigan recently introduced a bill to allow online poker and casino games within the state.

This year GiGse will be dedicating a lot of time and energy to the study of millennials, as a full day and half of the conference will focus on what organizers have dubbed the Millennial Summit.
The Millennial Summit and the parent GiGse conference will have several “shared” panels, and if this is a topic that you are really interested in, then the second day of GiGse (April 28) is your can’t-miss day.
