Relevant company Gaming Laboratories International announced an updated ‘GLI-19 Interactive Gaming Systems’ standard is available now. It’s a renewal of the GLI-19 v3.0 standard. This document can be downloaded here: https://hubs.ly/H0sH6cl0. Main new features include better precision in technical requirements; it aligns GLI-19 with overlapping requirements; it reflects industry best practices and global standards, and it enhances operational controls and procedures. Along with GLI-19, another standard for online gaming is GLI-33.
The text has four chapters: Introduction to Interactive Gaming System; Platform/System Requirements; Random Number Generator (RNG) Requirements, and Game Requirements. It also contains three appendixes and a glossary of key terms. The appendixes are the following: Operational Audit for Gaming Procedures and Practices; Operational Audit for Technical Security Controls, and Operational Audit for Service Providers.
As GLI clarifies, this document is intended to be used by regulatory bodies, operators, and industry suppliers as a compliance guideline for technologies and procedures pertaining to interactive gaming. The standard is not trying to represent a set of prescriptive requirements that every Interactive Gaming System and operator shall comply with; however, it does establish a standard regarding the technologies and procedures used to facilitate these operations. Operators and suppliers are expected to provide internal control documentation, credentials and associated access to a production equivalent test environment with a request that it be evaluated in accordance with this technical standard. Upon completion of testing, GLI will provide a certificate of compliance evidencing the certification to this standard. GLI-19 should be viewed as a living document that provides a level of guidance that will be tailored periodically to align with this developing industry over time, as gaming implementations and operations evolve.
