LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2014) - The Gaming Standards Association has been driving global standards for more than 15 years, and its award-winning standards have modernized and streamlined the land-based sector. Now GSA is leading the development of global standards for the online gaming side of the industry, and will bring that mission to ICE Totally Gaming 2014. GSA will be on stand #N4-100.
GSA President Peter DeRaedt said, "Many of today's devices and systems on the tradeshow floor are powered by GSA standards. This is a testament to the success of our land-based standards. Now as online gaming continues to grow globally, it is important for the industry to bring the relevant standards to this critical area as well."
Formed in mid-2013, GSA's Online Gaming Committee is working diligently to bring the same levels of standardization and success to online gaming that GSA committees and standards have brought to land-based gaming over the past 15 years.
GSA's global membership continues to grow, adding ten new members earlier this month. At ICE, GSA staff will be on hand to discuss the benefits of membership for operators, suppliers and regulators.
GSA offers a range of membership levels to suit any company's budget and business interests. For more information on the many benefits of membership, visit gamingstandards.com.
