About: EGR Virtual Series: a spotlight on the southern states

The South is a region of the US sports betting market with huge potential and varied progress. While a small number of states are already live and more edging closer to opening up, some of the largest and most dynamic potential markets, such as Texas and Florida, remain in the planning stages still. In this first half of 2021, we are starting to see a return to business as usual across the country after a year of unforeseen global challenges. But will the past year serve as a catalyst to the opening up of these states earlier than expected and if so what can we expect in terms of the legalization of sports wagering across the southern states?

In this panel session, our speakers will discuss;

-How the notably different mix of stakeholders in the South affects how sports betting and online gaming will be authorised
-The intricacies of tribal stakeholder management in this region
-The role of the lotteries in these states and potential concerns about new competition
-What policymakers can learn from other live regions in the USA
-What the most significant challenges and drawbacks are currently for the southern states
-Which states seem poised as the most exciting opportunities for 2021
