Scientific Games has announced that its SG Digital division has successfully completed pre-compliance testing of its OpenBet Sportsbook Retail Platform against the "GLI-33: Event Wagering Systems" draft standard and Mississippi Gaming Commission's proposed sports and race pool regulation. These standards offer starting points for clear guidance regarding betting integrity and a way to move forward responsibly in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent ruling striking down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA).
The First Pass Pre-Compliance Evaluation confirmed that SG Digital's retail point-of-sale terminal and administrative backend systems that support OpenBet operate in line with the proposed regulatory expectations of GLI. This evaluation sets the stage for a full review of the OpenBet functionality.
"Evaluation against draft GLI-33 demonstrates that the software and systems conform to a broad set of well-recognized and accepted requirements for compliance suitability in a variety of markets. The evaluation of the SG Digital OpenBet platform against GLI-33 by GLI provides SG Digital, regulators, and its customers independent evaluation to its suitability," said Ian Hughes, GLI's Vice President of Global Services.
Keith O'Loughlin, SVP Sportsbook at SG Digital, said, "As legalised sports betting spreads across the states, we're taking every step to provide a seamless transition for our partners. Speed is of the essence, and this pre-compliance review positions us as a partner of choice for operators seeking industry-leading turnkey sportsbook solutions across land-based, online and mobile channels."
