There’s a buzz about the gaming industry. Both the regulated and unregulated sports betting markets are undergoing significant change around the world, but particularly in Canada.

The introduction of Bill C-218, the Safe and Regulated Sports Betting Act, legalized single-event sports betting in Canada on August 27, 2021, and resulted in important legislative and regulatory changes to the Canadian gaming landscape. The subsequent adoption of an iGaming framework in Ontario in April 2022 has been followed by hints of similar change on the horizon for other Canadian provinces and territories.

Join Peter Czegledy, Chair of the firm's Gaming Group and co-Chair of the Esports & Gaming Group and Sports, Media & Entertainment Group, alongside a panel of industry experts as they discuss these changes and explore what the future holds for what may be the most dynamic and promising segment of the gaming industry.

Topics include:

  • How and why sports betting is evolving as an industry
  • How sports betting situates within the broader gaming landscape from various perspectives (i.e., revenue, regulatory, customer, product)
  • How Canada's sports betting industry differs from that of other jurisdictions, and different approaches operators, suppliers and other participants are taking as a result
  • What approaches will need to be taken as the concept of “sport” changes, and how industry participants can capitalize on those changes
