FSB has announced it has been granted Gaming Laboratories International GLI 33 certification for its sports betting platform, ahead of its impending US debut.

The online casino and sports betting tech provider successfully completed pre-compliance testing of its products and services against GLI 33 event wagering systems standards, ahead of the provider’s entrance into the regulated US market.

Dave McDowell, CEO at FSB, said of the approval: “Gaining GLI 33 certification is another milestone for FSB. We see huge potential for our various products and services in the US and this certification gives us the platform to prove our technologies can meet the exact needs of operators and players across North America. It all points to an exciting 2021.”

The company, which is said to have identified “tremendous opportunities” across the US, assures that its North American launch is anticipated soon.

The standards met by its latest approval, while not a replacement for the requirements that must be met in each regulated state, ensure that platform providers are meeting the highest possible integrity standards and will help to expedite the approval process in each region that the firm enters. 

Bob Akeret, vice president operations in North America at FSB, added: “We are delighted to have received Gaming Laboratories International GLI 33 certification for our sportsbook platform, proving that we are meeting the highest integrity standards ahead of our debut in the US market.     

“Approval for our certification was quick and straight-forward and that’s a real testament to the technical capacity of our highly evolved platform.” 

Earlier this month, FSB has bolstered its senior management ranks via the appointment of Ian Freeman as chief revenue officer, where he will be responsible for creating and deploying business critical strategies and developing its sales and business development teams. He will be based out of the company’s London office and will report directly to McDowell.
