Local experts

Ahead of the closing of the current licensing window on December 17, attendees of the Gaming in Spain Conference will have one last opportunity to hear from and meet with local regulators.

Juan Espinosa García, Director General de Regulación del Juego, Ministerio de Hacienda y Función Pública, and Guillermo Olagüe Sánchez, Subdirector General de Regulación del Juego, DGOJ, will both address the expected impact of the third licensing window on Spain’s online market, as well as the country’s current regulatory outlook.

Mikel López de Torre, President of trade association Jdigital, will share the industry’s perspective on the latest regulatory and market developments.

International authorities

Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of EGBA, the Brussels-based industry body representing the leading online gaming and betting operators licensed in the EU, will offer a strong counterpoint to the emerging narrative that advertising restrictions will ensure greater levels of player protection.

Rather than a lure to vulnerable players, advertising is a necessary licensing tool that guarantees taxes, player protection, and regulatory compliance, Haijer will show.

Kim Mouridsen, Associate Professor at Aarhus University, Managing Director Cercare Medical, and founder of Mindway AI, will discuss methods to support operators’ efforts to create long-lasting customer relations with a focus on responsible gambling.

Mouridsen’s approach, based on a combination of AI and expert evaluations, has been shown to be effective in the early detection of problematic gambling behavior and early intervention. His AI-based responsible gaming program has already been successfully implemented by Danish operator Danske Spil.
