Earlier this week, the second annual Online Casino Summit Italia (OCSI 2024) wrapped up. The exciting event took place in Rome, Italy, between May 7 and May 8, providing unique insights for stakeholders within the gambling sector in Italy.

The unique networking event offered networking opportunities and panel discussions that revolved around important topics for the market in the country. OCSI 2024 comes at a time when Italy is considering extensive changes to its gambling sector with the implementation of new rules that would affect licensed operators.

Key points discussed during the latest summit involved the implications for the online gambling sector in Italy. As a part of the changes, licensed gambling operators must comply with the new rules that stand out with increased supervision and oversight.

What's more the future success of the regulation of the iGaming sector in Italy depends on the effective collaboration between different agencies that are ultimately expected to ensure the compliance of the operators with the new rules. At the same time, a key part of the changes to the gambling industry in the second-largest European gambling market would be the fight against the illegal sector and criminal activities.

Trusted operators that hold licenses in the country will not only have to comply with the enhanced rules but help in the fight against criminal activities such as match-fixing, money laundering and other potential financial crimes. This can be achieved through innovative products as well as effective multi-agency collaboration. Such efforts are also going to be pivotal for the protection of players as well.

Besides the changes to the gambling sector in Italy, another hot topic at OCSI 2024 was the future growth of the industry in the country and potential new opportunities. While the market changes may push some operators away, others might find it suitable to enter at this moment, allowing for changes to the market share of operators in the country.

During the recent networking event, participants discussed the unique opportunities for sports betting operators presented by artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. In the context of changes to the market regarding payments, the recent event highlighted the importance of compliance of gambling operators who must use traceable payment solutions.

Representatives of a number of companies recognizable across the globe participated in the important event. The list includes Andrea Bellezza, GiG Media's Head of Business Unit, Daniele Tagliarini, DTC Advisory's Managing Partner, and Stefano Sbordoni from Sbordoni & Partners, among others. Also participating in the event was Capt. Giacomo Spinelli of INTERPOL, as well as other industry experts and stakeholders.

Alessandro Allara, OCSI 2024's Chairperson, shared his excitement about the latest event and highlighted a number of hot topics discussed earlier this week. "Very interesting and deep conversation within all the panels," explained the experienced executive when recalling highlights of the exciting event.
