Imagine you're playing a poker tournament. You do well early on, bust a few players, and pick up reads on your opponents. Then the table breaks. You keep your seat, but the new players are tougher, and one of them has a monster stack. This is the competitive ecosystem that's about to dominate U.S. iGaming.
But not everyone sees PokerStars, the gigantic newcomer, as a threat. Even among rivals, there's a sense that PokerStars' U.S. return could be a communal good. How so? Can the new stakeholders work together for the good of the industry? We'll directly confront this proposition and other key issues concerning the fate of this space.
Our "Executive Panel - The New Deal" takes place on day one of iGNA 2016 at 1.15pm in Celebrity Ballroom 4. Panel moderator, Sue Schneider, Founder of eGamingBrokerage.com, is joined by Eric Hollreiser of Amaya, Inc. and Michael D. Cohen of Caesars Acquisition Company.
"The question of whether PokerStars entrance into regulated iGaming in the US will be a game changer will soon have some answers given their launch in New Jersey in mid-March. With the conversation between these two executives, we'll explore the landscape in the US and what the path forward may be for state-regulated online gaming."
