Events

The McNees Wallace & Nurick, Harrisburg University and Whitaker Center esports seminar is set to cover the possibility of esports betting in Pennsylvania, given a U.S. Supreme Court case legalizing sports gambling, from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m on Sept. 7 at the Whitaker Center.

The esports gambling panel is scheduled to consist of Doug Sherman of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, Bill Thomas of the Pennsylvania Esports Coalition, as well as McNees Wallace attorneys specialized in the topic.

These individuals will discuss the implications of esports betting in the state, how it would work and whether it has the potential to impact state revenues.

The panel will also discuss some of the concerns regarding the illegal esports betting market, including underage and compulsive gambling, and if these elements carry over in a regulated and legal esports betting industry.

Sherman serves as the chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, where he counsels and oversees a staff of attorneys in the provision of all legal advice and services to the board, the executive director and various administrative bureaus and units of the agency.

Thomas is chairman of the Pennsylvania Esports Coalition, a nonprofit 501(c)(6) organization created to advance the development, growth and integrity of esports in Pennsylvania through advocacy, education and promotion of the industry.

Registration for the esports seminar costs $99.
