#4: Howard Lederer
Few people have wielded as much power in iGaming as did Howard Lederer at his peak of controlling operations for Full Tilt Poker. Lederer recently settled a civil suit with the U.S. Department of Justice and now appears to have put his personal legal liabilities relating to the collapse of Full Tilt Poker behind him. It’s hard telling what’s next for Lederer, but one thing is for sure: he isn’t shying away into a corner.
