Swedish gaming development company, Gaming Corps, who develop original content for iGaming and gaming, found themselves in an enviable position when the demand for their games exceeded their initial forecast. That meant they needed to accelerate their plans to enter into multiple new markets, including Portugal, Spain, Malta, Italy, Denmark, Greece, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, and Croatia, on top of the MGA and Sweden, where they were previously certified. The question was, how could Gaming Corps meet their aggressive expansion plans with new technical requirements without compromising on quality and compliance.
Gaming Corps understood that if they were going to get multiple games certified in numerous jurisdictions within a matter of months, they needed to work with a trusted testing lab who not only had the expertise in each of the markets they were targeting, but also had the ability to mobilize a team at short notice. Gaming Corps’ requirement was to rapidly add an extension to their team that would lead them through the complex processes, utilising the implementation of best practices that remains critical to the company’s ethos.
GLI had initially been engaged by Gaming Corps to certify a number of games for release in the Romanian market, and following the successful completion of that project, Gaming Corps was confident that GLI would deliver what they needed, when they said they would.
GLI has proven how valuable they are during this sustained period of growth. Where we had shortfalls in our knowledge, GLI’s various departments have been able to step in and help us through those exciting but more challenging periods. We’re grateful to the team for the collaboration as we move out of the startup mentality and look to add more expertise as we continue our growth journey. After a year of collaboration with GLI, we are at a point now where we think and approach development differently. We can focus on innovation, knowing we’re supported by GLI’s advanced compliance and pre-testing with the new understanding this relationship has provided. It has given us the confidence to move forward at a faster pace, pre-empt any potential hurdles, deliver smoothly, and work together effectively, saving time and money. What we’ve managed to achieve is impressive and to make that happen, small but ambitious teams sometimes need to rely on additional resources.
Gaming Corps are a fantastic client for GLI. They are a dynamic, ambitious company and we are proud to have helped them expand their business significantly in the last 12 months. We haven’t just focused on certifying their games; we have worked with their team to transform the way they roadmap new content to ensure they have the certification requirements factored in from the outset. This has streamlined their end-to-end process, enabling them to get their games to market much quicker with support from GLI and resulted in them expanding their portfolio into new content types. We are excited to be part of their plans for the future and their ongoing success.
The initial strategy was fairly straightforward, to apply GLI’s tried and tested certification process, identify any potential issues early on, and work with the Gaming Corps team to build their knowledge and understanding of the markets it was entering. All with a view to ensuring it would meet and exceed the various regulators’ requirements in a seamless and effective way, with the minimum impact on its game-delivery timelines. It was also important for Gaming Corps that the GLI team help it to develop best practice internal compliance processes in order to futureproof upcoming game releases and market entries.
GLI helped them to develop a simple workflow that gave the GLI team early visibility on the key milestones, checkpoints, and delivery dates, making the end-to-end process as smooth and quick as possible. It ensured there were no surprises and both sides were working to one plan.
After 12 months of working together, GLI has supported Gaming Corps in certifying over 35 games in 10 new markets and continues to work with them on new games and RNGs every month as an ongoing programme of expansion for the organization.
