The huge potential for innovation, investment, and entertainment offered by online gaming and sports betting in the fast-growing U.S. market is attracting leading companies to the upcoming iGaming NEXT New York City ’22 event.

The rapid expansion and evolution of the U.S. market since 2018 has resulted in a vast array of institutional and private investors primed to unlock the largest ever new market opportunity for operators and suppliers.

A record total of 31.4 million Americans were projected to place $7.6 billion in legal bets on this year’s Super Bowl, according to American Gaming Association figures, as iGaming regulation continues to roll out across the country – activity that is stirring interest among some of the biggest names in the iGaming and investment space.

Playtech and Morgan Stanley, the latter as co-sponsors of the investNEXT 2022 track, are among a wide range of leading companies to have signed up to the boutique two-day event in Manhattan that will provide valuable information while offering first-class hospitality.

Delegates will be educated on what is happening on the ground in the US, with a focus on investment opportunities within the industry and the convergence between iGaming and the metaverse and the consequent opportunities this will present.

“The roll-out of sports betting legalization across the United States has been a story of consistent success,” said Rory Credland, Head of Commercial at iGaming NEXT.

“It is a journey that is only just getting started and investors have a major role to play in providing the capital needed to establish the strong foundations that suppliers and operators will require in order to build success. With the likes of Morgan Stanley and Playtech involved as sponsors, we are delighted to be able to bring the two sectors together.”

iGaming NEXT New York City ’22 takes place on May 12-13, 2022, at Convene at 177 West 46th Street, Manhattan, in New York City.
