It’s better live! Join us for the 2nd Annual Live Gaming Summit @Casino Barcelona on 26 April, 2018:

Since its modest and pioneering start ten years ago, live casino gaming has become a key income generator for the remote gaming industry. In 2014, almost a third of online casino GGR in EU regulated markets was already generated by live gaming, according to data provided by H2 Gambling Capital.

Live gaming GGR in regulated EU markets is estimated to increase to 50% by 2020.

Because of these market developments, the Live Gaming Summit is bringing together, for the second time, providers, operators, experts, and other stakeholders to discuss the latest developments in the live gaming industry.
