Players are paying money for the opportunity to win money. They are putting real cash on the line playing games of chance and games of skill. The legal landscape for this market is evolving in the U.S. and around the world. How do you make money by getting players to spend money trying to win money? What's legal and what's not? Where is it legal? Where do Apple and Google stand? What's going to happen in 2018? Join the IGDA’s Real Money Gaming SIG to dig into these questions, get answers, debate, discuss, and deal.


Attendees will discuss the regulatory and legal frameworks of real money gaming genres around the world from a game developer’s perspective. The discussion will also cover the challenges and opportunities of real money game design, issues related to platform partners like Apple, Google and Facebook, and market expectations for 2018.

Intended Audience

This discussion is aimed at developers of all sizes and experience levels working, or interested, in real money gaming. Have a strong point of view? Have questions? Please join us.
