The US is at a watershed moment in light of the potential of expanded legalization of sports wagering within the country. We invited a select group of operators to our clubhouse in Mayfair for a post-ICE seminar which aimed to equip operators interested in exploring these potential markets with an understanding of the realities of the US regulatory and legal systems.  The event featured US speakers who have witnessed the pitfalls and successes of the earlier incursions by foreign operators into their market, and close with a panel drawn from the KPMG global team to discuss the topics raised.
