Paul Burns, the president and CEO of the Canadian Gaming Association joined the latest episode of the Gaming News Canada Show some 24 hours after giving the latest update to the association’s growing membership. Not surprisingly, some of the conversation during the CGA’s virtual call involved the proposed standards to advertising in the gaming industry by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. Burns, who’ll be part of a discussion on regulated gaming in our home and native land beyond Ontario at next week’s SBC Summit Barcelona, also answered our questions on the leadership changes at the AGCO over the past two months.

John Pappas, GeoComply’s senior VP of government and public affairs, made his return to the show to shine a brighter light on GeoComply’s NFL Week 1 report, which included a 56-per-cent rise in betting transactions from a year ago. Pappas also provided an update on efforts by U.S. states to join the 30-something states with legal sports betting.

Amanda Brewer, the Canadian country manager for Kindred Group, and her LeoVegas counterpart Jacob Hargaden-Llewellin also lent their voices to the conversation on the latest news in the Canadian sports betting and gaming world.
