The company operates in the US through BetMGM.
The move builds on the opening Bootcamp for Gambling Law, Compliance and Integrity, in March 2020 at Seton Hall with the Entain Foundation US, in which an initial group of 50 people participated. The goal is to make Seton Hall Law’s Bootcamp the leading annual program in the industry. This year’s boot camp is just around the corner September 19-22 on the Seton Hall Law campus in downtown Newark.
The importance of the training program for game ethics and compliance is increasing. Gambling in the US has increased dramatically during the pandemic, and New York and other states are considering laws legalizing sports betting and other forms of gambling. The Seton Hall Law Bootcamp focuses on case studies and key regulatory requirements to achieve best practices in state-sanctioned gambling and industry regulations.
For this year’s program, Entain and Seton Hall Law officials expect to involve nationally and internationally recognized experts who will explain:
- Insights into global and US gambling markets and trends,
- Legal and regulatory structures that guarantee market integrity and player protection, and
- Transparent compliance protocols that protect both the public interest and the operators.
Entain supports the provision of training for legal, compliance and ethics professionals in the field of gambling in the United States, where rapid growth has resulted in increased demand for these functions and where regulation varies from state to state.
“The bootcamp aligns with Entain’s focus on promoting the integrity of sport, responsible gambling and compliance with company policies,” he said Martin Lycka, Senior Vice President, American Regulatory Affairs & Responsible Gambling. “We look forward to expanding our partnership with Seton Hall Law School, a premier law school and globally recognized leader in compliance training, to provide professionals with the expertise needed to support the growth of this sector in the United States . “
“This funding will ensure the continued success of the bootcamp and ensure that gaming compliance professionals have a thorough understanding of the legal framework and the ability to identify, investigate, prevent and combat illegal or unethical behavior,” he said Kathleen M. Boozang, Dean of Seton Hall Law.
Entain’s move follows the recent expansion of US Foundation-led initiatives on accountability and protection of gamers to related sectors, including video games and esports. Earlier this month, she announced partnerships with the Counter-Strike Professional Players Association, Kindbridge, Rise Over the Faultand an expanded partnership with EPIC risk management. These four organizations will provide mental health services and education to potentially vulnerable players
William J. Pascrell III, a Trustee of the Entain Foundation US and an alumnus of Seton Hall Law, was personally involved in fueling the growth of sports betting in the US: “This industry is growing very rapidly and needs the support of highly trained legal and compliance professionals who understand the complexities of the regulatory landscape,” he said. “This is a really exciting collaboration trying to do that.”
