LAKEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwire - Mar 7, 2013) - Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), the world's leading gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy, announced today the Delaware State Lottery has formally adopted the recently released GLI-19 v2.0 "Interactive Gaming Systems" Technical Standard.
On January 31, 2013, the Delaware State Lottery issued a comprehensive request for proposal (RFP) to the gaming industry regarding an Internet Gaming System and Services Solution with a view to becoming the first full-scale interactive gaming installation in the United States. During the RFP process the Delaware State Lottery immediately recognized the importance of employing technical standards covering the various systems and technologies envisioned for their market.
"GLI is pleased to assist the Delaware State Lottery in meeting their requests for a comprehensive technical standard for interactive gaming systems. We pride ourselves on having the resources to quickly identify and act upon our client's needs," said GLI President and CEO James Maida. "GLI continues to be a proponent of industry standardization and recognizes that homogeny of standards in the interactive gaming space is paramount, particularly when jurisdictions work towards the goal of establishing effective player liquidity required to maximize return on investments."
GLI-19 v2.0, the first set of common standards for technical regulation of iGaming markets, is a technical standard based on an extensive review of several key interactive gaming jurisdictions that have experienced great success in regulating the inherently complex systems associated with iGaming. GLI-19 v2.0 encompasses best practices employed in established regulated jurisdictions from the U.S., Canada and countries throughout Europe. GLI-19 v2.0 is available for free, immediate download on GLI's website, www.gaminglabs.com.
