Are Lottery and Casino Industries Converging? Experts to Discuss September 21-23 at ECGC in Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lotteries and casinos have historically been separate industries, but the digital revolution is changing that. As ilottery and lottery courier services emerge, and as lotteries delve into sports betting and other shared verticals, what are the implications for policies and profits? And what can be done about unregulated slot machines, which represent a challenge for both lotteries and casinos.

These issues will be discussed by a panel of industry experts at the East Coast Gaming Congress, September 21-23 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

  • Scott Bowen, Government Affairs Specialist, NeoPollard Interactive; former Commissioner, Michigan Lottery
  • Peggy Daniel, US General Manager, The Lotter/New Jersey Lotto LLC
  • Drew Svitko, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Lottery
  • Richard Weil, President, Richard Weil Group; Principal, Spectrum Gaming Lottery Group

The conference will kick off with an opening reception on Wednesday. There also will be three keynote addresses during the conference and a networking cocktail party on Thursday evening.

Additional panel discussions will focus on issues facing the industry, including:

  • Sports Betting: Which Model is Working Best?
  • Is Gaming Growing Responsibly?
  • The Best Things in Gaming Right Now Are …
  • State Regulators: Keeping Their Promise to Keep Pace?
