Chris Christie Not Peeved NJ Governor Murphy Name on Supreme Court Decision

(October 15, 2019) - Whatever former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's legacy will be, one thing is certain:  It was he who paved the way for a landmark decision in the US Supreme Court that now allows states to offer legalized sports betting.

Christie spoke Tuesday at this year's G2E show.  When and expressed why he wasn’t too disappointed that current Governor Phil Murphy’s name (and not his) appears in the title of the Supreme Court.

“It’s not like I’m lacking in name ID," he said.   Read More

G2E Panelist Claims DOJ Slowing Spread of Sports Betting in PA

(October 14, 2019) - The revision in the DOJ decision has had an impact on the industry in at least one area, according to one G2E panelist Monday.

Spin Games LLC CEO Kent Young said that the DOJ’s opinion has slowed the spread of iGaming in the U.S.

“If you look now, there’s only two operators operating iGaming in Pennsylvania,” Young, whose company specializes in on-property and mobile and innovative gaming entertainment, said. “Without the DOJ opinion, there would be (more) up and running now.”

Greg Brower, the former U.S Attorney in Nevada and an attorney with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck in Las Vegas, believes that a First Circuit ruling against the DOJ would likely result in the Department backing off.
From CDC Gaming Reports:

Brower compared the issue to cannabis, which has seen some states legalize its use despite its being against federal law. The DOJ isn’t addressing cannabis in states where it is legal, he said.

“Here (with the Wire Act) it’s not crystal-clear what the law says, but it seems to be even more likely in this context the DOJ would back off, especially if it suffers defeat in the First Circuit,” Brower said.

Brower said he doesn’t see any scenario where federal prosecutors would go after licensed legal operators for Wire Act violations, or violations of a 2006 law prohibiting payment processing for internet gambling, even though the opinions from the department can’t be ignored.

Despite that opinion, which Brower said “is no small thing,” he said it’s “hard to imagine” the department taking an aggressive posture with wire transactions.

Big Brother Displayed at This Year's G2E

eConnect, Inc., a Las Vegas-based software company which provides gaming and hospitality companies with a platform for actionable information, reinforced by video, will showcase their latest AI technology at the 2019 Global Gaming Exposition (G2E). eConnect's applications, including its new TITOTracker technology, uses facial recognition to accurately identify individuals and their activity throughout the casino.

Since many financial transactions take place at kiosks, eConnect’s TITOTracker links and totals transaction amounts to an individual face. Whether the person is a carded player or unknown, casino operators are now alerted when any individual exceeds predefined AML/FinCen thresholds.

“Facial recognition in the gaming industry can benefit multiple departments, not just surveillance,“ commented Henry Valentino, CEO of eConnect. “Those charged with Anti-Money Laundering responsibilities, the Casino Marketing department, and even the Database Marketing team can leverage our non-intrusive facial recognition applications. eConnect can provide a set of capabilities with this technology that each property can put to use for their unique environment.”

To see TITO Tracker and the full suite of eConnect’s applications, visit eConnect’s Booth #3710 at G2E in Las Vegas, October 15-17, 2019.
