The topic of the event will be: is the online casino industry benefiting of betting crisis, given the stop of sporting competitions? Sports betting enthusiasts are spending more time playing virtual casino tables and with all the land-based gaming halls closed, the online casino industry should be benefiting the most.

Another panel will cover “the payment industry during Covid-19“. Social distancing is keeping people in their homes and with this comes more online spending. The fiat currencies are doing good during this crisis, however, cryptocurrencies are losing their value fast. “We will analyze if there are growths in the transaction volumes and how the spend is increasing during this period but also keeping an eye on cybersecurity”, the organizers explain.

Will advertising banning still be enforced after Covid-19?” While battling against Covid-19, European countries are spending a huge amount of incomes and once the battle is over, the state budget has to be supplemented. Will legislators consider lifting advertisement bans in order to allow operators and affiliates to relaunch their activities and start running the business, while paying taxes?
