International Center for Gaming Regulation

As gaming continues to recover from 2020 and as jurisdictions continue to take steps to legalize and expand gaming, now is the time to get a foundational and actionable knowledge base on how to navigate the gaming industry from a regulatory perspective.

  • Conducting cutting-edge research and regulatory evaluation
  • Disseminating data and information
  • Providing world-class educational programs for the world’s regulators
