When the second edition of CasinoBeats Malta returns next month, it will do so with the PaymentExpert Forum as a key portion of the two-day conference.
Taking place on Thursday 26 March, alongside the Gaming 2020 and GamingMalta-led Working in Malta tracks, it follows the first day of conference content featuring Slots 2020, Regulation & Compliance and the KPMG Investor Forum.
With Chris Smart, SVP of eMerchantPay, on board as track chair, the payments track is set to dissect a variety of key industry issues, such as:
- Credit crunch: Gambling payment restrictions
- W2: Harmony on compliance
- Quarantined: Instant play and payments
- Crypto: The next chapter
- The 6AMLD challenge
- Future of PSPs
David Clifton, director of Clifton Davies Consultancy, who is moderating the first of those sessions, commented on the event: “There can be fewer more topical questions for discussion at CasinoBeats Malta than those that will arise during this session.
“Less than three weeks before the UK credit-card ban comes into force, the speakers will debate whether this will serve to make gambling safer, how difficult the ban will be to uphold, how demonstrably e-wallet providers can prevent the use of credit cards for online gambling though their wallets and whether other jurisdictions will follow suit.
“With calls for more rigorous affordability checks to prevent gamblers depositing funds from overdrafts or loans, what else might emerge from the forthcoming government review of the UK’s gambling legislation?”
The second edition of CasinoBeats Malta will be significantly larger than the 2019 debut, welcoming up to 1,500 delegates to InterContinental Malta on March 24-26, and offering delegates unparalleled networking opportunities alongside six tracks of conference content.
Confirmed speakers for CasinoBeats Malta include James Ford, head of casino at LeoVegas; Alexander Stevendahl, CEO of Videoslots' Jan Jones Blackhurst, board director at Caesars Entertainment; Cristiano Blanco, head of gaming at Kindred; Jacqui Gatt, head of casino at Mr. Green; Alexander Martin, CEO of SKS365; and Petra Zackrisson, CCDO of Stoiximan/Betano.
