The time of paper March Madness brackets, hand-drawn raffle tickets, and pulling a physical slot machine lever are waning. Today, the gaming industry is rapidly moving online with mobile wagering increasing exponentially. This CLE will prepare participants on how best to advise clients in this space and how to keep their own firms in compliance with state and federal laws when organizing fantasy leagues, sweepstakes, and office pools among employees. In addition, the presenters will discuss where Maine stands on jumping into the booming sports betting and mobile gaming markets. Participants will learn how best to draft and update internal Internet and mobile device usage policies in light of the proliferation of online gaming and how to navigate online office pools. This CLE will also address basic legal requirements for creating and operating sweepstakes and contests online outside of the gaming space, best practices for drafting official rules, and commonly made mistakes when implementing these types of promotions on social media.
