Adoption of IAGR’s Multi-Jurisdictional-Testing-Framework (MJTF)
There are good news for gambling operators that work across national borders. The Danish Gambling Authority has for some time participated in a working group under the IAGR (International Association of Gaming Regulators) to create a common testing standard. The working group encompass Great Britain, Alderney, Isle of Man and Denmark.
Many jurisdictions have differentiated testing requirements for gambling operators, but seek the same purpose in the end – to keep games safe and fair. On that note, the working group has started with a key area when it comes to online gambling, and established a framework for testing an RNG (Random Number Generator). The framework is available on the IAGR website (www.iagr.org/multi-jurisdictional.testing-framework (link is external)), and the working is continuing to work on common standards for other areas of online gambling. The new framework is currently only adopted in the participating jurisdictions, but it will be updated as other jurisdictions adopts and accepts the standard.
It is important to remember that if a jurisdiction holds requirements that goes beyond the common standard, the gambling operator that follows the common standard will still need to comply and be tested for the remaining requirements to that given jurisdiction.
The Danish Gambling Authority will now accept tests completed to the common standards.
