GLI-19 V3.0 reflects a revision to the core interactive gaming standard to incorporate technical requirements reflective of the latest trends in gaming technology, to better align with overlapping requirements in the GLI Family of Technical Standards and other industry standards, to reflect industry best practices, and to provide better clarity between technical requirements, which would be evaluated in the lab, compared to operational controls and procedures, which would be evaluated post system install when required by a regulator.
Additionally, this revision enhances sections pertaining to operational controls and procedures, including periodic security testing to help regulators and operators create more efficient and alternative processes to monitor interactive gaming operations. The changes made are largely designed to improve the clarity and consistency of requirements and are therefore expected to be non-disruptive to the industry as a whole.
The draft of GLI-19 V3.0 is being provided to industry stakeholders for review and comment at this time. Stakeholders include wagering, gaming and lottery regulators, suppliers, test laboratories, operators, and industry trade associations.
The formal comment period begins with the issuance of this advisory and concludes in 3 weeks, on June 12, 2020. Written comments are encouraged and should be submitted to the "GLI Compliance" mailbox at [email protected]. Please note that this public comment draft is not final-formatted.
GLI will process the comments received from industry stakeholders and collaborate as needed to address their interpretation, evaluation, and resolution in the context of the revision to this technical standard.
GLI-19 and the rest of the GLI Standards Series are available for free download on the 'GLI Standards' tab found at www.gaminglabs.com.
