With a brand new addition to the editorial format, keeping with the magazine’s remit to pursue news and developments in new markets, the magazine now also includes a dedicated Canada section.
Additionally, the new issue delves into the divide between online and land-based gaming, as BetMGM’s Vice President of Gaming, Matthew Sunderland, highlights how it can be bridged in a way that ‘both parties benefit’.
