National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) – Summer Meeting
Friday – Sunday, June 9 – 11, 2017
The Westin Denver Downtown in Denver, CO
Bob Stocker (Member & Gaming Practice Leader, Lansing) will be a speaker on Saturday, June 10th from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.
Panel Discussion – “The New Frontier: Emerging Forms of Gambling”.
Legislators, regulators, operators and consumers are facing a fast-growing array of gaming choices, from daily fantasy sports to skill-based machines to virtual reality gaming. But determining what is already legal within a state’s framework – and how to regulate it – can be tricky. Even determining when an activity is simply “gaming” vs. “gambling” is open to legal debate when considering the traditional elements of prize, chance and consideration. Gaming attorneys and regulators provide their insights based on state law, court decisions and legal opinion.
The Summer Meeting agenda includes legislative committee sessions on Responsible Gaming, Pari-Mutuels, Lotteries, State-Federal Relations, and Casinos, as well as general sessions that examine sports betting, retail gaming, and new/emerging forms of gambling.
