GLI will be using our extensive experience to help these jurisdictions with setting compliance standards and handling evolving technologies.”
The GLI Asia general manager noted: “GLI sees the increasing compliance demand in Asia as a good thing. It shows that jurisdictions want to have a healthier gaming industry within their country. It will also be good for the land-based casinos. Only by staying proactively compliant can they grow their business steadily.”

We will continue to work with the Philippines regulator on this area to foster a healthy gaming industry for the Philippines.”
