Bet.Works, a U.S.-based iGaming and sportsbook platform supplier, recently announced that it has been granted one of the first concurrent Gaming Laboratories International GLI-33 / GLI-19 certifications for sportsbook operations. Bet.Works has successfully completed pre-compliance testing of its Sportsbook Platform against the GLI-33: Event Wagering Systems standard.

These standards offer a definitive roadmap regarding betting integrity and a way to move forward responsibly in the post Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) era.

“We are pleased to have completed this part of our business operation," said David Wang, founder and CEO at Bet.Works. "GLI is the global leader in authentication of gaming technologies and it was a pleasure to work with them through this process. 

“This GLI certification verifies that Bet.Works complies with GLI-19 and GLI-33 technical standards, thus allowing Bet.Works to pursue second phase product approvals with regulatory licensing jurisdictions that require their own proprietary product certification or jurisdictional / internal lab testing. We feel strongly that acquiring this certification will expedite our licensing process in many jurisdictions that will be legalizing sports betting in the U.S. and look forward to working with business partners and regulators in that regard.”

“GLI’s sports wagering team created the GLI-33 standard by compiling and integrating event wagering best practices from other regulated markets around the world," said Salim Adatia vice president of iGaming services at GLI. "This established a clear and cohesive technical standard for sports wagering systems across multiple delivery channels including retail, self-service kiosks, in-venue mobile and internet.”
