Covered in the sessions will be best practices and analysis of online gaming regulations, licensing, taxation, money laundering, security, bank transactions and other aspects of the sector. The intention of the organizers is to provide an understanding of the economic impact of online gaming in Eastern and Southeastern Europe, and the strategic importance of the region on the world map.
The morning sessions of EEGS will cover various topics relating to land-based gaming in the region, which includes Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and the nations that previously made up Yugoslavia. Also addressed will be the new legislation in Poland.
