At the IBA Annual Conference 2012, the Electronic Entertainment and Online Gaming Committee participated in a joint session with the Leisure Industries Section and the Technology Law Section, "The global 'gamification' of online gambling". This session was filmed and is available to watch:
Part 1 - presentations
Gamification, and online gambling, are among the booming global phenomena of the past decade. Given the highly polarised reactions to gambling across different jurisdictions, yet the boost it can provide to governmental coffers in these trying economic times, few are surprised that online gambling has generated both political controversy and a plethora of cross-border regulatory and legal issues. Part 1 of the session (above) explores these critical issues through the eyes of major online gambling companies.
Part 2 - Panel discussion and Q&A
The second part of this session was interactive and included a panel discussion featuring an online gaming hacker and a representative of a gaming/gambling company.
