There’s no sugar coating the fact: 2019 was an incredibly difficult year for the gambling industry. The sector has a long way to go if it is to restore the trust of lawmakers and the general public across a number of territories.

However, this should be viewed as an opportunity. The current climate creates scope for significant structural changes, which can ensure a sustainable sector going forward. For this reason the overarching theme of the magazine is: where next?

In this issue we have focused on covering the industry names that are working to implement real change. This ranges from businesses that have stood the test of time, to those just starting out with fresh ways of tackling old problems, to disrupt the established industry order.

We have also worked to highlight new opportunities, both in terms of new markets for growth, as well as new technologies and products. Through this, it’s clear that while things are at a low ebb, there is significant potential, and 2020 could provide a springboard for the sector’s rebirth.

We hope you enjoy the issue, and if you’re reading this at ExCeL for ICE London, we’re on the show floor so please get in touch if you’re keen to meet.

    The debate about diversity goes way, way beyond gender and what behaviour is or isn’t appropriate at a trade show. If the igaming sector continues to lag behind other tech and entertainment industries in this area, it will fail to capture the top young talent.

    Welcome to the ICE issue of iGaming Business! A new year inevitably brings with it a sense of renewal, of new goals and inspiration, and with ICE, where the world’s leading developers unveil their refreshed products and tech for the year ahead, for this issue to revisit the divisive and much-argued-over subject of innovation seemed entirely appropriate.
