Sports betting and interactive gaming technology company Newgioco has obtained the Gaming Labs International (GLI) Events Wagering System certification standard GLI-33 for its Elys betting platform to operate in Washington DC.
The GLI-33 technical specifications standard certifies the company’s Elys betting system and retail functionality of the POS terminal and is the first phase of a plan to unveil the platform for operations throughout the US.
The second phase of testing the SSBT is now underway through a collaboration with the United Tote Company.
Michele Ciavarella, CEO of Newgioco Group, said: “Completing the first phase of GLI certification is another major milestone in positioning Newgioco to obtain the required licenses and commence operations in the US market. This certification is a key component of our multi-year business growth strategy and the investments we made for expansion into new markets outside of Italy.
“Getting it right the first time is critical to a successful launch in the US and I am very pleased with the outstanding dedication of our software developers, compliance team and project managers at Odissea to accomplish this mandate.”
