Gaming - 2023 Regulatory Events

2023 Regulatory Events in the Gaming Industry - Explore bill, regulatory changes, and agency updates from 2023.


As industries are headed into another year of keeping up with legislative and regulatory developments ahead, Regology compiled an overview of the events that took place across the gaming sector during 2023 to demonstrate their magnitude.

These events were all captured on the Regology platform, highlighting the level of automation and convenience available today to identify the 7,704 events that are discussed here. These are a part of the 707,834 events that Regology tracked across the US in 2023.

Overview of Events

Regology’s dedicated gaming law library consists of laws and regulations relevant to the gaming sector. We used several of its components for this overview and they generated 7,704 alerts for the year 2023. The alerts range across the legislative and executive branches and include:

  1. Proposed law changes (Bills), 
  2. Changes to compiled statutes and regulations (Regulatory Changes), and 
  3. Updates posted by government agencies (Agency Updates).

The table and chart below show the breakdown of these alerts across the various types.


Across the United States, 528 bills were identified that include one or more references to sections of the compiled statutes within the selection of Regology’s gaming law library. 1,094 bills were identified through keyword matches, bringing the total of identified bills to 1,622. A total of 385 bills made it into law, whereas 1,016 of them did not advance to the next house of the legislature. 170 bills have passed the initial chamber and 33 bills have passed both, leaving the remaining 18 awaiting signature. 

The table and figure below contain an overview of these metrics. For this overview, we have left out the bills that have died in 2023.

Regulatory Changes

Across the United States, 2,118 change events were recorded that amended the compiled statutes and regulations. The figure below depicts where these changes happened across the United States.


A single regulatory change can have an impact on multiple regulatory topics. The table below shows all the regulatory topics within Regology’s gaming law library used for our analysis that were impacted by legal and regulatory changes. A total of 3,200 occurred in 2023, as shown in the table below.

Agency Updates

Regology also tracked the updates published by government agencies on a daily basis. The agency updates are published through various channels and are given a wide range of names and classifications. ‍To make this data more insightful, Regology has harmonized the agency updates issued in 2023 into the categories below, totaling 3,964, as shown in the table below. 


To demonstrate the pace of legislative and regulatory change, Regology exported the 2023 metrics for some of its industry and topic-based law libraries into a digestible overview. We invite you to view any of our other industry/topic-focused publications we release over time. Our analysis provides an insight into the depth and breadth of our capabilities that are used by our customers to keep up with the constant pace of legislative and regulatory change. Complying with laws requires an agile approach that is capable of identifying and responding to changing requirements in a continuous manner.


This overview assessment of legislative and regulatory events corresponds to the events identified by the Regology platform in 2023 for parts of its gaming law library. For a closer look into any of the events that this overview comprises, we note that these are all available on the Regology platform.

The metrics presented in this report were, for the most part, derived automatically from the content that is continuously updated on the Regology platform. It includes several of Regology’s AI-based regulatory intelligence technologies to identify change events within—and across—publicly available law publications that are relevant to the gaming industry. 

To avoid overstating the numbers of impacted clauses, we counted the codification of changes as a single event, and we presented the numbers for the U.S. Federal Government in a manner comparable to those for the States. For example, the rule changes published in the Federal Register were omitted from our count and are picked up at the federal and state levels within the compiled regulations. 

Finally, as the connected collection of legislative and regulatory materials housed on the Regology platform continues to be further enhanced, new capabilities and metrics will soon be introduced to further build out our analyses.
