A Closer Look: New Gaming Products and the Challenges
They Create for Regulators

For every new type of gaming product introduced, there are at least a dozen people trying to figure out ways to beat or cheat it. Creating new product offerings is critical to industry sustainability, but doing so creates new opportunities for theft and crime. How does regulation help mitigate these risks and how are regulators working together with the industry to address technologies like internet gaming, eSports, skill-based gaming and virtual reality? What challenges to evolving play are suppliers faced with due to these regulations?
