NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2015) - Registration is now open for the Spectrum Gaming Group and Spectrum Gaming Capital webinar, "The Future of Fantasy Sports: Understanding Regulatory and Political Issues" which takes place at 11 a.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, November 5.

The webinar speakers will be:

  • Fredric Gushin, Managing Director, Spectrum Gaming Group
  • Timothy Lowry, Partner, DLA Piper
  • Adam Steinberg, Senior Vice President, Spectrum Gaming Capital
  • Seth Young, Chief Operating Offer, Star Fantasy Leagues

"In the week since we announced our webinar, a number of lawsuits have been filed against the operators of daily fantasy sports sites and additional states have indicated the intention to investigate a regulatory framework for the industry," Adam Steinberg notes. "We have brought together a panel that includes lawyers, former regulators and industry operators to address these and other important issues."

Spectrum Gaming Group and Spectrum Gaming Capital have decades of international experience in the relevant fields of gaming regulation and compliance, anti-money-laundering, corporate due diligence and finance, as well as in identifying and analyzing trends that impact land-based and online gaming around the world.

The Daily Fantasy Sports industry has experienced rapid growth in recent years. The DFS industry generated approximately $1 billion in entry fees in 2014, and is expected to reach $2.5 billion in 2015. Some estimates have placed entry fees for DFS at $18 billion by 2020. In 2013, only 8 percent of all fantasy sports participants played daily fantasy sports exclusively, but according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, in 2015 almost 20 percent of players play daily fantasy exclusively. Recent high-profile missteps have created the perception among lawmakers, investors and players of employee abuses and impropriety. As such, there has been a groundswell of media and legislative calls for regulations and laws. The Spectrum Gaming and Clarion webinar will address the issues and highlight best practices to regain the trust of players and lawmakers.
