Regulating casino-style social games (Debate): The UK is considering the regulation of social casino-style games. Does social gambling need regulation? Is social gambling redefining the legal definition of Gambling? What would regulation mean to platform providers like Facebook? What impact would regulation have on the future of the Social Gambling industry?

What drives investment in Social Gambling: Social Gambling is the darling of the tech investment community, but what drives investors to this space and what do investors look for when analysing investment opportunities in this sector?

Plenty of positive feedback was given on the first events, with most delegates enjoying the idea behind the event and the networking.
