JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (1 July 2021) – Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) has been appointed by the Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board of Uganda to support them in developing new technical standards for the gaming industry in the country.
GLI will advise the Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board on the review of existing gaming technical standards and draft new technical standards where required. GLI will also provide training to the Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board staff and gaming inspectors to introduce the new technical standards and ensure the successful adoption and ongoing compliance with the standards.
Acting CEO of the Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board of Uganda Juliet Namuli said, “The development and adoption of a robust set of technical standards to govern the integrity of gaming software and equipment and ensure the protection of players is our number one priority. The Board has a good relationship with GLI, and we look forward to working with them in an advisory capacity on further developing the technical standards of gaming in Uganda.”
The announcement comes after an incredibly challenging period for the gaming industry across the globe and signals a positive reemergence of the industry as gaming jurisdictions take the first tentative steps to rebuild.
According to General Manager for GLI Africa, Devon Dalbock, GLI was selected as the service provider after a rigorous RFP and selection process, which saw several bidders submit offers. “We are delighted to have been awarded the contract to partner with the Lotteries and Gaming Board of Uganda and are well-positioned to deliver the services required. We have significant expertise in delivering similar projects for a number of global jurisdictions, including several in Africa, such as Seychelles and Nigeria.
“Our team in Africa is expanding as demand for GLI services and advisory continues to grow across the continent. We know that we still have a long way to go before things start returning to normal in Africa, but we want the gaming industry to know that we are here and ready to support them when they are ready for us to do so,” he added.
