The Gaming Standards Association (GSA) says it has created a new technical standard for the manner in which iGaming platforms, remote game servers, and progressive jackpot controllers can work together.
The standard, known as “Third-Party Interface” or “TPI”, covers functions including the launching of games, the recording of monetary transactions, the posting of progressive contributions, the awarding of progressive jackpots, and for “reconciling interrupted games”, the association said in a Monday press release.
“From a layperson’s perspective, GSA’s TPI Standard greatly enables operators [to get] access to new content; to retain current players; and attract new players, keeping them from defecting to other online casinos,” added the association.
The new specification is said fully to support online gaming operations that serve multiple jurisdictions, allowing the activity associated with each jurisdiction to be “easily isolated and reported”.
“This is a win for operators who want to better service their customers with a continuing stream of new content; it’s a win for platform providers who can cut integration time and support costs; and it’s a win for content suppliers who can now more easily reach the marketplace,” said Mark Pace, GSA Europe managing director, as quoted in the release.
The GSA’s new TPI Standard is available for licensing by members and non-members, according to the association.
The association is a gaming sector trade body dedicated to creating shared industry technical standards for purposes of efficiency, technical compliance with regulations and sector profitability.
