US and Canada

With more US states opening up to a regulated gambling framework, and Ontario recently joining the fold, Issue 21 of SBC Leaders Magazine sets out to shine a spotlight on the developments taking place across North America.

Kickstarting this edition of the magazine, Jan Jones Blackhurst takes us on the journey of her career – beginning with the dare that led to her becoming Mayor of Las Vegas and the reasons why she has always taken a people-first approach to leadership.

While positioning Las Vegas as the entertainment capital of the world was a large point of discussion, Jones Blackhurst spends much of her interview highlighting the importance of diversity, inclusion and social responsibility, explaining how these three values are integral to any business’ success.

In addition, Wazdan’s Chief Commercial Officer, Andrzej Hyla, analyses the current state of play for the US market, detailing key opportunities presented for game providers as the firm aims to strengthen its North America footing. 

North America isn’t the only market to feature in Issue 21. Over in Latin America, esports takes centre stage as Federico Maques, Marketing Manager of Boca Juniors, underlines the significance of the football team having a presence in the esports space – a market which he believes holds infinite growth potential.

Also included in this edition of the magazine is a pick of some of the standout slots since our previous release, California spotlight by VIXIO GamblingCompliance’s James Kilsby, a roundtable on spiralling player acquisition costs and interviews with our new Hall of Fame members: Sandy Drozd, Vincent Magliulo and Chris Andrews.
