Skill games trade association formed
NEW SKILL GAMES TRADE BODY FORMED
Bringing skill game firms together
Skill-based game provider companies FUN Technologies (Skilljam.com) and King.com have partnered to form a new trade association for skill gaming companies titled the Interactive Skill Games Association (ISGA), appointing attorney and former Director of the California Division of Gambling Harlan W. Goodson as its President.
ISGA will offer its members the opportunity to compete with one another in "an interactive environment of the highest integrity" and will also be used as an independent vehicle to fund legal research for the benefit of members, and promote a better understanding of the industry as far as regulators and lawmakers are concerned.
“Skill gaming is one of the most rapidly growing sectors of online entertainment and there is a pressing need to ensure the integrity of our games and to promote understanding of the services we offer,” said Toby Rowland, co-founder and co-CEO of King.com. “Mr. Goodson, as a former chief state regulator, is the natural choice to lead the new trade association toward these goals.”
“Through the creation of this new association, it is our goal to develop a code of conduct and best practices for the skill games industry, to which we hope member operators will voluntarily adhere without the need for government intervention,” commented Lorne Abony, CEO of FUN Technologies.
