This week, the GGB Podcast sits with JJ Woods, the managing director of Atlantic Casino Consulting, about how new regulations in Ireland have at least a small chance of growing the gaming industry there.

GLOBAL GAMING BUSINESS PODCAST: JJ Woods, Managing Director, Atlantic Casino Consulting

Gaming in Ireland has been operating in a grey area since the early 2000s when British-style membership clubs began to be established. A new set of gaming regulations has been set up recently along with a new regulatory scheme. JJ Woods has been consulting on gaming projects around the world for more than 30 years and is the unqualified expert on gaming in Ireland. While he is optimistic that the new regulations will help grow the Irish gaming industry, he says specifics are few and far between because lots of issues need to be decided. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his office in Dublin in January. (Listen to podcast abv., or view video below).
