The Gaming Industry in the U.S. has seen unprecedented growth in sports betting and iGaming in the last few years, which has created new startups and expansion of existing companies.

As this part of the industry takes hold in the U.S., and expansion across all gaming continues, conglomerates will be formed that will impact regulators’ licensing, certification, technical deployments, and regulatory oversight of these companies.
