GLI Completes Testing for Shared iPoker System

Gaming Laboratories International has completed testing and certification services for the first shared-liquidity internet poker system in the U.S.

Leading gaming testing company Gaming Laboratories International announced that it has successfully completed testing and certification services for the first shared liquidity internet poker system in the United States.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board and the Delaware State Lottery are the first regulatory agencies to pioneer the integration of player pools across multiple domestic regulated markets. GLI was tasked with ensuring regulatory compliance and financial auditing and worked collaboratively with the regulators and operators on various objectives throughout the planning and deployment phases of this initiative.

 As part of its process, GLI assembled a team of industry experts to tackle objectives covering analysis of regulatory overlap, component certification, report auditing, data migration and security evaluation.

“We are happy to have been engaged, as GLI was appointed as the testing and certification laboratory to ensure compliance against all relevant and applicable requirements for the states of Nevada and Delaware,” said Ian Hughes, vice president of global services for GLI.

“It was a monumental effort by Jim Barbee, chief of the Technology Division at the Nevada State Gaming Control Board Gaming Division, Rebecca Goldsmith, deputy director of the Delaware Lottery, and GLI Engineering along with their incredible teams. It was their hard work and dedication that brought the shared liquidity endeavor to fruition.

“The shared liquidly project carries significant importance as it is a critical step in the further development of a strong poker ecosystem within the United States, and we are honored to have been chosen to conduct the testing.”

GLI tests and evaluates iGaming platforms and systems for domestic and global markets. The company also provides consultation and professional services to established and emerging iGaming jurisdictions worldwide, in addition to the land-based and lottery jurisdictions the company serves.
