Don’t Gamble on Compliance – How to Stay on Top of the Gaming Industry Challenges
We are pleased to welcome you to the Accuity AML Knowledge Breakfast at ACAMS on September 24 at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The gambling ecosystem is characterized by its variety. Online operators compete with physical establishments covering a wide spectrum of “services” from casino games to sports betting. With so much money changing hands, gaming operators are ripe targets for various types of financial crime, including money laundering, tax evasion, corruption, conflicts of interest and even sanctions evasion.
The cash-intensive nature of gambling, the global reach, and the ability for players to store value through gambling services underscore the complexity of this rapidly changing industry. Gaming operators and financial institutions need to work together to identify financial crime risks from gambling activities, which will help inform the AML/CFT framework needed to meet regulators’ pressure.
Join the discussion to explore the implications of online sports betting, learn how to ensure the efficiency of your KYC program, and better understand the role and responsibilities banks and operators share in meeting the gaming industry compliance challenges.
Date: Tuesday, September 24, 2019
