TIG Session to Discuss Sports Betting Regulation, Taxation, Ops, and Implementation in Canada and the U.S.

On the heels of GiGSE and Juegos Miami, TIG heads to Canadian Gaming Summit next week to present the latest in sports betting in North America. Meet Brian Wyman of The Innovation Group during the Ontario conference, and don't miss his panel Tuesday, Update on Sports Betting Research.
The groundbreaking U.S. Supreme Court decision to reverse PASPA has opened the door for legal sports betting in the U.S. What will that mean for Canada? Additionally, new development opportunities and pathways to improve operations through data science and analytics are ripe in casino operations worldwide.

Sports Betting

Sports betting is at the forefront of the gaming industry today. TIG is available to meet and discuss our recently released  Sports Betting Playbook , and our proprietary, targeted,  consumer-focused survey on sports betting , as well as how we might assist with your sports betting questions and needs, including:
  • Reviewing the current legislative landscape, including tax rates and what each state is most likely to permit
  • Shaping legislation and regulations that help maximize your opportunity
  • Strategic implementation planning, including how sports betting integrates into your property, selecting operating partners, and how to build a sports betting operation
  • Understanding consumer behaviors in response to several sports betting scenarios on a national and individual state basis
  • Forecasting sports betting market potential at casinos or within distributed systems based on our proprietary model and primary research
  • Assessing the impact on core gaming and resort operations at the property or statewide level, as sports betting drives casino visitation

Data Science

  • Understand what your data can do for you. How can data be leveraged to improve operations, guest service, and financial performance?
  • Create your own data and analytics roadmap. Develop a strategic plan for how to leverage data to achieve your goals. How can data analysis pay for itself, several times over? How to balance priorities vs. opportunities vs. resources?
  • Advanced Analytics. Learn how advanced analytics can help with customer segmentation, targeted marketing, revenue protection, floor optimization, and more!
