hummed with excitement and the rich aroma of freshly brewed coffee, as attendees
eagerly anticipated the start of Day Two at SPiCE India 2023. Yudi Soetjiptadi,
Managing Director of Eventus International, made the first address of the day with a
welcome to all in attendance. This was followed by opening remarks from the
Chairperson, Christina Thakor-Rankin, Principal Consultant at 1710 Gaming. These
speakers expressed a deep enthusiasm for the Indian iGaming industry and highlighted
its unrivalled potential for growth and development.

The morning session featured two-panel discussions. The first, moderated by Devon
Dalbock, General Manager of Gaming Laboratories International, focused on

Content and Partnerships – Indian Subcontinent, Sportradar. The audience appreciated
the valuable insights shared on this panel.

International, discussed the threats posed by illegal gaming and how to counter them.
Panellists included Kuntal Sampat, CCO of LootMogul, and Jyotsna Chaturvedi,

Head of Corporate Practice, Maheshwari & Co. Advocates & Legal Consultants.
This proved a fascinating discussion, with a specific focus on illegal gaming in India.

Amy Remes, CEO of Kootac Trading, gave an interesting presentation on the latest
international lottery technologies. This was followed by another panel discussion on
improving player protection and responsible gaming, moderated by Devon Dalbock
and featuring industry experts such as Jaydeep Chakravartty, iGaming Consultant

The afternoon sessions began with a panel discussion moderated by Rakshit Ahuja,
Head of Partner Network at Admitad India, examining the changing gaming market in
India and developments to look out for. The final two-panel discussions of the day
looked at sustaining and growing the industry amidst updated gaming laws in India and
methods for tapping into the Indian gaming market. Both these discussions looked at
the advantages and challenges of a regulated gaming market in India and strategies for
unlocking its full potential.

Apart from the wonderful speeches and presentations, the exhibition floor was certainly
the place to be. There was a flurry of activity around all the exhibition stands as
attendees connected with leading providers to learn more about the latest technologies
and services on offer. There was a buzz of networking across the room with
handshakes and smiles indicating that attendees were accessing exciting new
innovations to improve their businesses.

The day ended with some closing remarks from the Chairperson, Christina Thakor-
Rankin. Christina recounted the valuable insights presented throughout the day and
shared her excitement about future opportunities for iGaming in India. The attendees
are now gearing up for the much-anticipated USD150 buy-in SPiCE Poker
Tournament. This promises to be an exciting event to cap off another successful and
informative day at SPiCE India 2023.

Speakers Have Their Say on Day Two

Another extraordinary seminar, and a very successful event where I have made several
valuable contacts. It was an opportunity to chat with interesting people and make new

Kuntal Sampat, COO, LootMogul
It was a great honour to speak among the industry leaders and veterans. This event is
full of fresh energy and expertise on all things iGaming.

Ashish Rana, Marketing Technology & Automation Consultant

Thoroughly enjoyed SPiCE India 2023, for me, it has really offered access to new
markets and people that I wouldn’t necessarily meet at European conferences. The
venue, the weather, the people, everything has been sensational.

Alex Jones, SPiCE India 2023 delegate, EveryMatrix

I would say this has been the best SPiCE yet and that is probably because the industry
has evolved and matured and as a result of the announcement from the Ministry of
Technology its reinvigorated the conversation. We have had some incredibly in-depth
conversations about regulation. What has been really interesting is that what has
started off looking like it’s just a normal event, has evolved into something that is much
more complicated and sophisticated and interesting.
