Principles of Sports Wagering: Policy and Operations
July 27 PDT
As gaming jurisdictions prepare for an expansion of sports wagering after the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on PASPA, now is the time to gain an in-depth understanding of how regulated sports betting works.
The International Center for Gaming Regulation provides this two-day intensive seminar on the regulation of sports betting, and we are excited to return to an in-person seminar experience. This event falls under the ICGR’s Sports Wagering track of executive education seminars.
