Hate the Fraudster, Not the Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The gaming industry is booming and expected to grow from $71.3 billion in 2015 to $90.1 billion in 2020. Major players have found even more success through in-game spending, with some boosting revenue and profits by double digits. But this growth also makes gaming companies a bigger target for fraud. This will likely increase further following the Supreme Court's recent ruling to legalize sports gambling. Fast-changing fraud tactics, high rejection rates and increasing competition are just some of the challenges. Don’t be duped. Join this panel and learn how to roll the dice in your favor.
