Susan Hensel tackles the myth of a single US gaming market in her latest column, explaining why it is incumbent upon newcomers to understand – and accept – the differences from state to state if they are to thrive. There is a myth about gaming in America and that myth is all the bigger, it seems, in the age of mobile wagering. I have heard it referenced in my many interactions with international companies interested in bringing their products to America and have seen it in the title of conference sessions. Instead, companies setting up shop in multiple US jurisdictions are asked to understand and meet different licensing, operational, compliance and enforcement requirements in each jurisdiction in which they seek to do business. 24th May 2021 | By Susan Hensel Foreign jurisdictions might instead place more attention on game fairness or protection of the vulnerable whereas the US adds suitability and other priorities to the mix. While it is interesting to hear how gaming is regulated in other parts of the world, the US gaming regulator is not empowered to make wholesale changes to its regulatory scheme simply because its requirements are inconsistent with other parts of the world. The policy reasons that shape the legislation lay the foundation for the regulatory scheme that will follow. It is the state’s administrative agency that creates the regulations implementing the law. Topics: Legal & compliance Compliance Legal Licensing Regulation The myth is that there exists such a being as a “US gaming market.” In fairness, the concept of a US gaming market is probably less myth than misunderstanding. But the misconception can waste international companies valuable time and create considerable frustration in coming to America. Similarly, there is a lack of uniformity regarding hardware location, testing standards, renewal schedules, and reporting, internal control, and audit requirements, as well as a long list of other factors. From an industry stand point this is all understandably duplicative and expensive. Still, the jurisdiction will want to do some level of its own work and take responsibility for sign off on the actual licensing decision. Should something go wrong and a scandal erupt highlighting an issue with a person or entity’s background, it is the state where the problem occurred that will be on the hook to answer for the issue. The jurisdiction is not able to defer responsibility for a problem just because another jurisdiction approved licensure. Perhaps it is a combination of these policy goals that leads to legislation legalising one or more gaming verticals. Policy decisions can also influence other aspects of a state’s law from the emphasis put on who, what and how to license, to decisions regarding the acceptance of credit, problem gambling considerations, and a variety of other social or policy issues.

The bottom line is that there is no such thing as a single US gaming market. Instead, gaming in the US is a matter of state’s rights resulting in many state gaming jurisdictions. Even the adoption by many states of the multi-jurisdictional personal history disclosure form is not without complications as most if not all states that accept the application require a supplemental form to fill in gaps in information unique to the jurisdiction. Granted it seems logical that if a person or company is good enough for one state, the person or entity should be good enough for the next. The problem is that no two state share the exact same licensing criteria. So a determination in one jurisdiction, as good as it is, is not fully applicable to the next jurisdiction. But this is the system we have in the US and it is not likely to change – at least not anytime soon. Companies can complain that it is illogical and waste a lot of time, money and effort arguing with the regulatory bodies or they can accept that businesses cannot always create their own market realities. Email Address In my experience, it is not unusual for a foreign company to initially suggest to the US regulator that what it is doing is not the way it is done in other parts of the world. When online gaming was getting off the ground in the US, foreign companies, in particular, struggled to appreciate the importance of suitability to the US regulator. Before launching my gaming law practice during my tenure as Pennsylvania’s director of licensing, I often heard the concern from online operators that what Pennsylvania was requiring was not what New Jersey required. And I imagine Michigan regulators have received similar feedback that what Michigan requires is not what Pennsylvania requires. True. And there is not a whole lot the respective regulators can do about it. While the regulator is open to working with companies to allow for matters to be handled similarly where possible, the policy differences that underlie the individual regulatory schemes prevent blanket uniformity. Further, a state legislature – or tribe – can decide that gaming is right for its jurisdiction for a variety of reasons. A legislature, for instance, may see it as a means of raising tax revenue, creating jobs, creating a tourist destination, stimulating economic development, stopping the flow of money out of the state to adjoining border states, financing a particular initiative or any number of other motivations. Instead, they can do their best to establish strong regulatory relationships and seek accommodation where possible while accepting that the rules of the jurisdiction are the rules that must be followed. Just because a company may not understand the way the US market functions does not mean that the way it functions is nonsense that can be ignored by any company seeking to thrive in the US. The influence the mob exerted over gaming in the early days of Vegas and the rules put in place to eliminate that influence are not always understood by companies coming from places that do not share this history. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Despite the lack of blanket reciprocity, states do work together in ways that are helpful to gaming businesses. Many states have memorandums of understanding with one another and foreign jurisdictions to share background investigation materials. Some jurisdictions will even accept another state’s approval of an applicant as a starting point for its own investigation. Tags: Playing by the rules The patchwork of jurisdictional regulations are understandably a headache for foreign gaming companies seeking a cost efficient and effective one size fits all rules of the road approach to market entry. Playing by the rules: Coming to America Regions: US Susan Hensel is co-founder of Hensel Grad P.C., a boutique law firm focused on gaming clients. She was named one of the ten most influential women in igaming by iGB in 2020. Susan is the former director of licensing for the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and the former two-term president of the International Association of Gaming Regulators. Susan has spoken around the world on gaming law and regulation. All opinions expressed are hers alone. Legal Each jurisdiction that has decided to allow gambling, an otherwise illegal activity, takes its own approach to such authorisation. This means there are as many US gaming markets as there are legislatures – or tribes – that have decided to open the doors to the activity. While gaming jurisdictions borrow regulatory concepts and provisions from one another, the schemes they adopt are never identical with variations ranging from subtle nuances to wholesale differences. The end result is the creation of individual US gaming markets, each of which aspiring companies must navigate in order to do business. One state may determine, for example, that a felony in an owner’s background precludes that individual from obtaining a license. Another jurisdiction may factor the felony conviction in to a discretionary licensing decision. Another state may rely on a specific list of criminal offences to deny approval. Take licensing, for instance. One of the most common asks is if regulators can allow reciprocity for licensing determinations across state lines and the answer to this point is no.
The trend of business-oriented LGBTQ Pride celebrations around the U.S. was overcome in Cleveland, at least for 2016. After 27 years of continuous Cleveland Pride festivals and marches, the corruption at the nonprofit Pride Cleveland was so great that the business owner who had taken it over abruptly canceled the whole event on Aug. 23, claiming vague and unsubstantiated security threats.The response of the greater community was swift and decisive. The Cleveland LGBT Community Center, along with 18 other groups and organizations, put together their own march and festival in two weeks’ time. In fact, for the first time in more than 20 years the event was called a “march” and not a parade.The focus was on responding to the bloody hate crime at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando Fla., with pride and determination, and to continue the fight for full civil rights for everyone in the LGBTQ movement. There were no shopping or FBI recruitment booths this year. There was dancing, laughing and local musicians. Of course, the organizers made nice with the Cleveland Police Department, but many participants knew that we must organize ourselves to defend ourselves and our interests.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

We will never stop advocating for the release of journalists imprisoned or held hostage, especially Austin Tice, the last American journalist detained in Syria. Jim was one of the first to try to gather more information about Austin’s wherabouts, when Austin disappeared in August 2012 in the suburbs of Damascus. We owe it to Jim’s legacy to do everything we can to bring Austin safely home.”Delphine met James Foley when he returned home from his Libyan captivity.

Foley Legacy Foundation:Second annual James W. Foley Freedom Awards to recognize Delphine Halgand, Emma Beals and Arwa DamonDOVER, N.H. — The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation announced Tuesday its 2017 honorees, three extraordinary journalists: Delphine Halgand, the U.S. Director of Reporters without Borders; Emma Beals, co-founder of the Frontline Freelance Register; and CNN Senior International Correspondent Arwa Damon.At its second annual James W. Foley Freedom Awards dinner at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on May 1st, 2017, the Foley Foundation will honor Halgand, Beals, and Damon for walking in the footsteps of the courageous conflict journalists and advocating for press freedom and journalists around the world.Diane Foley launched the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation in 2014 following the murder of her son, American conflict reporter James W. Foley, in Syria the same year. Foley said of this year’s honorees: “These three young women continue Jim’s legacy of courageous commitment to bearing witness, reporting the truth on the ground around the world, and compassionate advocacy for those suffering amid conflict worldwide.”Halgand, U.S. Director of Reporters without Borders, will receive the James W. Foley American Hostage Freedom award.“When our U.S. government did not know how to help Americans held hostage abroad, or their families, Delphine and the distinguished David Bradley (2016 American Hostage Freedom award winner) went above and beyond to help us. They both continue to help the frantic American families who currently have loved ones held abroad, like the parents of Austin Tice and returning American hostages like The Washington Post’s Jason Rezaian. Though a French citizen, Delphine has cared to reach out to American families and advocate for their loved ones’ return, on top of her demanding job with Reporters without Borders, where she works tirelessly to promote press freedom every day.”Of Beals and Damon, Foley said: “Emma Beals, an independent conflict journalist, and Arwa Damon, a seasoned staff conflict journalist at CNN, are truth seekers like Jim. They both risk their lives to bring us authentic images and stories from conflict zones. They have witnessed much of the suffering imposed on civilians amid the world’s conflicts, and the toll on fellow journalists and humanitarian workers who have dared to care.”Beals will receive the 2017 James W. Foley World Press Freedom award for her work to launch the Frontline Freelance Register and, most recently, the international Alliance for a Culture of Safety to protect fellow independent conflict journalists. Last year’s winner was David Rohde of Thomson Reuters.Arwa Damon, CNN senior international correspondent for the past 10 years, was so deeply moved by the many children suffering in conflict zones, unable to access the health care they needed, that in 2015, she founded a nonprofit called INARA. Its mission is to help children with serious injuries sustained in conflict access the complex medical care they need. For her compassionate advocacy on behalf of these children, Damon will receive the 2017 James W. Foley Humanitarian Award. Her heroic work reflects that of the 2016 James W. Foley Humanitarian awardee, Nadia Alawa.The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation continues Jim’s legacy by supporting work in three key areas: American hostage advocacy and hostage policy research, the protection of independent conflict journalists and the education of the public and university students on these silent crises.“In America, we are so blessed by the freedoms we enjoy,” Diane Foley said. “The best journalists are the truth seekers who show us what is really happening in our own country, and around the world. They protect our American freedom by shining a light on issues critical to maintaining our democracy.“I welcome our new president and urge him to make the return of brave Americans like Austin Tice, Caitlan Coleman, Paul Overby, Robert Levinson, and our many unknown citizens a true national priority for our government. I also implore you, President Trump, to recognize the powerful contribution that our best American journalists make to our wonderful democracy.”NOTES FOR EDITORS: James Foley and the Legacy FoundationJames W.

Acting per the Supreme Court’s ruling in Safai Karamchari Andolan and Others v. Union of India and Others, a Division Bench comprising Chief Justice S Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chaly instructed the Kerala Water Authority, the Labour Department, Water Resources Department, Local Self Government Department and Chief Secretary to the Government, respondents to disburse the sum within a period of two months of receipt of a copy of the judgment. Ordering thus, the Bench remarked, “Let the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court be honoured by the abovesaid respondents, in letter and spirit, without giving room, for further litigation.” The Court was acting on a petition dating back to 2014, filed by noted “activist lawyer” Basil Attipetty. His petition sought compensation for Raju and Mayavu, who died inside a manhole in a sewerage pipeline operated by the Kerala Water Authority (KWA). The petition stated that when the employees were engaged in manhole of sewerage pipelines, adequate and necessary safeguards ought to have been taken by the Water Authority officials, so as to avoid any accident. Grounding its contentions on Delhi Jal Board v. National Campaign for Dignity and Rights of Sewerage and Allied Workers & Others, the petition asserted that the KWA’s engagement of workmen without providing adequate safety gear and oxygen masks led to the death of the workmen. Additionally, the Police and Fire and Rescue service personnel did not have the necessary required tools, to rescue the poor workmen, the petition had averred. Accordingly, the petitioner had sought the payment of An ex gratia amount of Rs 5 Lakh to bereaved family membersAmount of Rs 25 lakhRs 2 Lakh each to family members to meet immediate expenses from Chief Minister’s Relief Fund In addition to these, the petitioner also prayed for directions to the Chief Secretary as well as the Cochin Corporation to set-up night shelters to migrant workers throughout Kerala. The High Court, when disposing the petition extracted portions of the Supreme Court’s decision in Safai Karamchari Andolan and Others v. Union of India (UOI) and Others where the Supreme Court was faced with deciding how to strictly enforce the implementation of the Employment of Manual Scavengers and Construction of Dry Latrines (Prohibition) Act, 1993 The High Court pointed out that the Supreme Court in the said decision had directed the Union of India/State Government/Union Territories, to identify families of all persons who died while doing sewerage work (in manholes, septic tanks) since 1993 and award a compensation of Rs.10 lakhs, for each such death to the family members depending on them. “The Hon’ble Apex Court has also directed that rehabilitation must be based on the principles of justice and transformation” the High Court noted. While accepting the contractor’s submission that the wives of Raju and Mayavu had respectively been compensated with an amount of Rs.4,00,000/- each, the Court highlighted that the reliefs as per Safai Karamchari was as against the Central and State Governments. Rejecting the submission by the KWA that there was nothing to indicate in the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court that compensation has to be paid by the Kerala Water Authority or the State Government, the Court ordered the sum of Rs 10 lakh to be disbursed to families of deceased manhole workers by the State Government. The Court ruled “Therefore, notwithstanding payments already made by the contractor, by virtue of the judgment of the Hon’ble Apex Court in Safai Karamchari Andolan’s case, Government of Kerala represented by the Secretary to the Government is bound to pay compensation of Rs.10,00,000/- each, to the family members of the persons, who died in sewerage work (manholes, septic tanks)” Directing the matter to be listed after two months to assess the extent of compliance, the matter was disposed. The case was one of many filed by petitioner, Advocate Basil Attippetty, who passed away in 2015. The lawyer was well-known in for arguing several public causes before the Kerala High Court, notable among which were his challenge to the National Judicial Appointments Commission, a PIL seeking a directive to the state to formulate steps to make better the living conditions of third gender persons in line with the Supreme Court’s NALSA judgment. The PIL disposed of recently was among the last filed by the lawyer before his decease in 2015. Advocate KP Pradeep was appointed to assist the Court after Advocate Attipetty’s demise. Senior Government Pleader Tek Chand, Standing Counsel Benjamin Paul, Millu Dandapani and Advocate Saji Varghese Kakkattumattathil, represented the various state respondents.Click here to download the judgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
