The casino gaming industry faces unique challenges that impact established entities and those contemplating market entry. The global market continues to grow rapidly as new jurisdictions emerge and mature. Demand and consumer expectations force gaming operations to differentiate themselves from the competition.

To address these challenges and sustain daily operations, casino gaming owners and operators must interact with many organizations in both the public and private sectors — from investment banks, analysts and commercial lending institutions, to governing bodies and licensing agencies that regulate and monitor their operations.

Complex issues also confront gaming regulators: how to monitor and safeguard enterprises that provide gaming tax revenues and also preserve the integrity of the gaming environment and the reputation of all parties involved. Gaming boards and regulatory commissions require internal control standards and practices, cost effective and equitable tax structures and ongoing analysis of legislative and economic impacts on the industry.
