Training and Educational Services
A popular and effective speaker, as well as a credentialed expert lecturer, Bob Snyder is a tireless educator in the field of games, gaming, and the law. Mr. Snyder is available to speak on specific issues of interest to audiences of government officials, industry members, or academics.

Definitions and concepts of skill and chance, consideration and reward, betting and wagering... These and a host of other game and gaming-related legal issues frequently prove baffling -- even to some experts! As new technologies and new promotions are invented, how do existing laws apply? What new regulation should be considered? To find out, make the call.

More to the point -- if judges, district attorneys, and law enforcement officers don't always understand the subject, how can manufacturers and distributors? How can casinos, theme parks and arcades possibly hope to achieve, and remain in, compliance? To learn the answers, give Bob Snyder & Associates a call.

Bob Snyder is able to clear up the confusion that frequently surrounds these difficult subjects. Whether addressing a group of government agents, or a collection of carnival operators, Mr. Snyder knows how to explain complex topics simply and succinctly. And, he is able to provide his listeners with the basic legal background knowledge they need, in order to go forward with confidence -- whether their jobs are to create new amusement devices, or to defend the public interest in fair, legal entertainment.

Gambling and video gaming (in person and via videotape); sidewalk fraud (lecture and demonstration); midway games and gambling; vice police training; fraudulent midway schemes; dice and electronic devices; skill merchandisers and applicable laws; gambling recognition issues and yardsticks; federal, state, and local laws as applied to amusement devices; many more.
