Bruce Merati has a long history in gaming technology. He was one of the first to develop a unique “live” dealer platform for iGaming and believes that the current Covid-19 crisis has been a wakeup call for the casino industry. Merati says that iGaming is a different product from land-based gaming and actually enhances land-based gaming instead of detracting from it. He says casino companies now realize the benefits of iGaming and once the crisis is over, they need to push for legal online gaming in states and jurisdictions where it currently doesn’t exist. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his home in San Diego on April 6.
