Online Gambling Expo Coming to San Francisco

26 April 2011 by admin

GIGSE-2011-San-FranciscoMany in the online gambling community will be visiting San Francisco, California next month for a high-profile summit and expo. PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker won’t be attending, of course, because they’re too busy trying to remain in business and keep the owners out of jail. I would advise those who attend this convention to be on the lookout for unmarked black SUV’s suspiciously following your every move.

Anyway, from May 17 to May 19, the Global i-Gaming Summit and Expo is being held in beautiful northern California. It is doubtful that the Justice Department will stop by so they can meet the legitimate businessmen of the online gambling industry. That’s a shame, because they could learn a lot. Still, there will be other good representatives at the convention. Delegates from Caesars Entertainment, digital entertainment, the Nevada Gaming Control Board, the New York Lottery, the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation and more will be there.

Also scheduled to appear are two California politicians who are trying to bring online gambling regulation about. Lou Correa, a California state senator who has sponsored legislation regulating intrastate online poker, and John Campbell, a U.S. Representative for California’s 48th district who has sponsored a bill to repeal UIGEA will both be there to talk about regulation. Over 300 delegates from elsewhere in the gambling industry are set to attend.

You can expect the Black Friday online poker domain seizures and indictments to be a hot topic. While most of the charges against the eleven defendants were for fraud and money laundering, the general feeling is that the case is an attack on the poker community. By meeting on month later in San Francisco, the industry will get a chance to discuss their options and meet in a productive way.
