When it comes to the complicated – and often confusing – world of online gaming and gambling, it’s important to have reliable, knowledgeable experts in your corner. Our firm helped break the digital barrier into online charitable gaming, working with an Ohio-based charity to translate a raffle fundraiser into a permissible online environment.
We work closely with our clients to create the legal groundwork needed for an online gaming operation. Internet gaming encompasses any player-versus-player (PvP) context where participants are wagering on the game’s outcome. Currently, we can't advise clients on wagers on games of chance – like online poker or online casinos – because they are not permitted in Ohio or most other U.S. jurisdictions.
- Idea vetting: guiding a gaming operation to ensure outcome is skill-based, not determined by chance
- Jurisdiction analysis: ascertaining compliance issues on the state level
- Interaction with regulatory agencies
- Online charity fundraisers
From website operators looking to enable wagers on PvP games to charitable organizations looking to expand their fundraising presence online, our clients include any group planning to conduct online gaming activities that are already lawful in real-world scenarios.
