DOJ Memo Will Be Hot Topic at ICE Totally Gaming Show

The ICE Totally Gaming show will take place later this month in London. The show will bring gaming experts and operators from around the world together. The show has received a boost from a recent memo by the US Department of Justice that has opened the door for online gaming in the United States. Warwick Bartlett, CEO and founder of Global Betting and Gaming Consultancy said that the DOJ ruling that only sports betting is prohibited online will boost interest in the ICO show. According to the memo states can offer residents poker, online bingo and online lottery tickets.

The ruling has had an impact on the online bingo and internet gambling industry and gaming stocks surged after the memo was released to news media sources. The ruling boosted the value of the UK’s largest quoted gambling companies by almost £500 million pounds ($771,198,733.34 USD) during the first post Christmas trading sessions. Bartlett stated “ICE is already the global focal point for the gambling industry and I can see its influence growing further. Following the DOJ ruling, software suppliers have been receiving inquiries from the US and I expect that this will be followed up by new entrants to the market coming to ICE to see at firsthand what is on offer and what deals can be achieved.”

This year the show will attract operators and gaming professionals from more than 100 nations to London’s Earls Court Exhibition Centre. The show will highlight gaming innovators who will be launching new gaming products this year. In addition the show will offer conferences, seminars and summits to explore new gaming trends and industry analysis. This is one of the gaming industry’s most important events and online bingo operators will be well represented at the show. The list of exhibitors reads like a who’s who of the gaming industry.

Many in the industry expect visitor numbers to be up this year despite a down economy. Bartlett told reporters “In spite of the global recession I would expect visitor numbers to be up this year because of the legislative changes that have taken place in Europe and what is expected to happen in the US.” He also expects the DOJ ruling to be a hot topic at the show and said “The DOJ ruling will certainly be the hot topic of the show, closely followed by VLTs as more and more nations and states look toward the VLT market as a way to finance their budget deficits.” The show will benefit online bingo players in the form of new innovations and products designed to make the online gaming experience more enjoyable.
