As technology becomes further integrated with our daily lives, it is not surprising to see a growth of tech tools aimed at promoting responsible gaming and helping gamblers manage or better understand their gambling behavior. Whether it emanates from non-monetized social games, on-site mobile, Internet gambling, sports betting or simply a more integrated casino network, it is clear that new tools will be presented to address responsible gaming issues. This panel will discuss the hard questions regarding: 

  • the alignment of these tools with peer-reviewed research

  • the measurability of results from using the tools

  • their impact a diverse consumer base

  • how to prevent unintentional harm

Regulating Sports Betting & Emerging Gaming  |  10:00 am - 10:50 am 

It's a new world now. Sports betting is rolling out slowly but surely in states across America. As Indian tribes prepare for the future, they will be asked to offer a mixture of sports betting products that are entertaining but also safe, secure, and legal. Tribes and tribal regulators will be on the front lines of providing oversight of new channels, including mobile and online, as well as evolving products like in-play wagers. The panel will provide insight into what are the necessary tools and best practices for regulating sports betting. The panel will also explore what tribes can learn from other jurisdictions already regulating sports betting.
