Online Software Testing Facilities Approved by UK Commission

The UK Gambling Commission has whitelisted three more software testing facilities for ensuring betting operators are in compliance with licensing requirements imposed by the Commission itself. The three facilities are the well known Gaming Associates and Gaming Laboratories International LLC and Gaming Laboratories Austria GmBH, also known as GLI.

The news was revealed early this week when the Commission published an updated list of approved testing houses, including information on the requirements for an approval. Other approved testing facilities include iTech Labs, BMM Test Labs of S. Africa (provisional approval), Cast Ltd., N Mi Certin BV, Vizuri Limited, Slovenian Institute of Quality and Metrology (provisional approval) and the well known Technical Systems Testing (TST).

As the United Kingdom leads the way entering a new dawn in "global" online gambling regulation, the UK Gambling Commission considers an online casino software testing house whitelist an unprecedented and major achievement. There certainly has not been such a list elsewhere in the world to date.

Coupled with the Commission's jurisdictional licensing whitelist, which lists approved regulators in the European Economic Union, such as Gibraltar, Alderney and Isle of Man, you a looking at the start of a regulatory framework that could very well usher international regulatory standards into the online gambling industry.

For the everyday online gambler, testing facilities are the gateway to ensure fair odds are being offered at an online casino. Technical Systems Testing (TST) for example, publishes certification forms for online casinos, such as Rushmore Casino, that have met fairness requirements and are in technical compliance. Essentially, this amounts to running millions of hands and statistically plotting payouts and winning hands to ensure no bet result is predictable. In other words, all bets must be fair and random. It is the Random Number Generator (RNG) of the software platform that is responsible for delivering these results.
