Social gaming

Social gaming

Social gaming is no longer the “next big thing”. It is already a highly valuable entertainment industry in its own right. Its roots can be traced back to the pinball machines of the 1950s through the arcade machines of the 1980s and onto the growth of console gaming in the 1990s and early 2000s. In this sense, social gaming is the incarnation of the latest advances in mobile phone and tablet technology allied with the growth of social networks.
We are proud to have been involved in social gaming from the very start and have built up a wealth of knowledge on the regulatory and operational challenges facing the social gaming industry. We are recognised as legal authorities on the subject and our lawyers have spoken at numerous conferences and contributed to various industry publications.
We have a close relationship with regulators, trade associations and operators and have been instrumental in shaping the regulatory debate. We have also advised clients on their social gaming strategy providing in-depth advice on the legality of social gaming products, the deployment of virtual currency and virtual items as well as drafting and reviewing their terms of use with end-users.
