Post-PASPA payments - how different verticals have adapted since the repeal

16th April 2019

In the year since PASPA’s repeal, the US market has seen significant change and development from regulators, players and operators.

However, the journey has not been easy, and there remain many questions left unanswered - how will more juvenile verticals such as esports fare? How does the Wire Act impact cross-state transactions? What are the challenges and opportunities for mobile payments?

Creating a safe environment for both operators and players is a crucial component of the burgeoning market, protecting all stakeholders while also gaining public and regulatory trust.

Cutting through the hype, this webinar will discuss the biggest developments in the US sports betting market, including:

- If and how the revised Department of Justice opinion has affected payments
- How the market has developed in the last year
- How operators should maximise approval rates
- Are operators ready for payments?
