KICKING FINANCIAL CRIME OUT
Lotteries have a responsibility to keep financial crime and money laundering out of gambling, not only for the integrity of their gaming propositions, but for the good of society. We have a duty to ensure that adequate controls are in place to prevent betting being used for money laundering or terrorist funding.
In the following Public Order Seminar, we will:
Discuss the way international criminals use gambling to conceal and manipulate the proceeds of crime and we will present the latest EU and international responses, focusing on the new EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive.
Present specific money laundering controls and we will share best practices. Explore the connection between sports betting and money laundering, the techniques used and the level of penetration of the international crime in the legal and illegal sports betting market. Examine the link between online fraud and retailers shop, focusing on the effectiveness of ticket checkers.
Look at the threats inherent in new media and new platforms, like mobile gaming.
