US-based iGaming and sportsbook platform supplier Bet.Works has been granted concurrent Gaming Laboratories International GLI-33 / GLI-19 certifications for sportsbook operations, successfully completing pre-compliance testing against the “GLI-33: Event Wagering Systems” standard.
These standards offer a definitive roadmap regarding betting integrity and a way to move forward responsibly in the post-Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) era, the company said.
Bet.Works founder and chief executive officer, David Wang:
“This GLI certification verifies that Bet.Works complies with GLI-19 and GLI-33 technical standards, thus allowing Bet.Works to pursue second phase product approvals with regulatory licensing jurisdictions that require their own proprietary product certification or jurisdictional / internal lab testing.”
Bet.Works believes the award of the certification will expedite licensing processes in numerous US jurisdictions where sports betting is or will be legalised.
Salim Adatia, GLI’s Vice President of iGaming Services:
“GLI’s sports wagering team created the GLI-33 standard by compiling and integrating event wagering best practices from other regulated markets around the world.
“This established a clear and cohesive technical standard for sports wagering systems across multiple delivery channels including retail, self-service kiosks, in-venue mobile and internet.
“The team at Bet.Works worked diligently and supported the testing process enthusiastically in order to acquire concurrent GLI-33 and GLI-19 approvals for their platform.”
