Canadian Gaming Summit to host compliance and finance topics
With its Payments and Compliance track, Canadian Gaming Summit’s 2023 running will provide attendees with lots of insightful information.
Being a part of the agenda of the conference’s closing day, the track will cover various regulatory and payment topics, starting with a discussion on cashless and omnichannel payment gateways for retail gambling establishments. Panelists, which will include GeoComply’s Lindsay Slader and River Cree’s Bob McDonald, will discuss whether operators should completely abandon cash in their payment systems or give players more choices with omnichannel offerings.
Up next, the track will host a panel covering the topic of gambling finance in the Canadian market. Featuring experts like TMX Group’s Dani Lipkin and Homestand Sports’ Mark Silver, the discussion will involve talks about how sufficient capital is vital for international operators to achieve success in the country and how these companies can collaborate with various investors to drive their business growth.
The track’s third discussion will talk about the impact of payments on the user experience of bettors. The panel’s attendees will include top names, like Caesars’ Trent Striplin, Paysafe’s Terry Carpenter, and Pointsbet’s Dami Amurawaiye, who will talk about how high decline rates of certain gateways may turn some customers away from the pastime while certain alternative ones have the opportunity to elevate the experiences of gamblers in Canada.
Following the third panel will be a discussion on cybersecurity and how both land-based and online operators in the rapidly expanding Canadian gambling market can protect themselves from emerging cybercrime threats. The panelists of the discussion will include Continent8’s David Brace, SIGA’s Jarvis Pelletier, and OLG’s Sunil Chand, among others.
The last two discussions of the track will follow the networking break of the day, starting with a panel on AML regulations. The discussion will cover how the forthcoming review of Canada’s AML and CTF laws can give operators the opportunity to work with the government to modernize their AML efforts to enhance their protections for themselves and their player bases.
The last discussion of the event will see panelists talk about innovation in the finance and compliance space. Its participants, which will include Crucial Compliance’s Paul Foster and Fanduel’s Brian Chase, will share how some of the Canadian market’s top players were able to cater to innovation-seeking local users to expand their businesses at pace.
