As gaming operators continue to confirm their plans to dive into the Spanish gaming market, GLI Europe BV, the European operation of Gaming Laboratories International, has been accredited by the Spanish National Gaming Commission to test and certify online gaming systems of operators hoping to supply services in Spain.
GLI is just the third company to receive the accreditation following along with NMI Metrology & Gaming Limited and BMM Spain Testlabs SLU.
With the nod from the Spanish Gaming Commission, GLI is now accredited as an independent testing laboratory for both B2B online gaming platform suppliers and B2C online gaming operators, and an independent auditor of Information Systems Security (ISS).
GLI Europe managing director Phillip Barow said in the release: “We are thrilled to have obtained this accreditation…there are three distinguishing factors that set GLI apart from all other labs: our bandwidth, technical expertise, and ability to save clients time to market and money through our testing results transfer system…We will use these advantages to take products previously approved for Italy, France, the AGCC and other highly regulated markets and quickly and inexpensively certify those same products for Spain.”
GLI has eighteen laboratories located across Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe, North America and South America.
GLI Director of iGaming Development Filippo Ferri added in the release: “We are seeing a tremendous amount of interest in the Spanish market, both from established international operators seeking to cement their presence in the market and from local Spanish realities looking to take their bricks-and-mortar operations online…It is great that a lot of the work that was done for Italy, France and the AGCC will be re-usable in this jurisdiction, and that we are already working with some of the leading third-party suppliers of traceability and storage solutions looking to offer iGaming suppliers and operators with pre-certified compliant systems to complement their Internal Controls.”
Moving forward, operators wanting to get into the Spanish market will have to choose the laboratory certifying their systems and games and GLI is hoping that with their resources and the knowledge to be able to make testing and certification as smooth as possible, they will be the laboratory of choice.
