The International Gaming Standards Association (IGSA), a specialist technical advisor regarding electronic gaming machine technology and digital infrastructure for the casino and betting industries, says it is due to release two new sets of technical standards.
The Third-Party Game Interface, version 1.5, deals with a standardized technical interface for technology including remote game servers and progressive jackpot controllers. IGSA says the standard can be applied to activities such as launching games, recording monetary transactions, posting progressive contributions and awarding progressive jackpots.
The Regulatory Reporting Interface standard is described as a set of standardized reporting requirements “that meet the core needs of the regulatory community while being flexible enough to allow extensions for jurisdiction-specific needs.”
IGSA has presented a series of nine educational webinars as part of its efforts to “support the industry during these challenging times,” according to a news release. The association also issued a new paper, “Covid-19 Operational Safety Enhancements,” which it said aimed to “protect regulators and reduce liability for operators.”
IGSA has also released a new white paper, “Secure Wireless connectivity for Electronic Gaming Machines and Systems,” reported GGRAsia, and a new regulatory handbook on the association’s standards.
