Scientific Games' SG Digital division has completed pre-compliance testing of its OpenBet sportsbook platform in preparation for roll in the US retail market.

The platform was assessed against Gaming Laboratories International's GLI-33 Event Wagering Systems draft standard and the Mississippi Gaming Commission's proposed sports and race pool regulations.

The evaluation confirmed that OpenBet point-of-sale terminals and backend systems are compliant with GLI standards, clearing the way for a full review of the solution's functionality.

"Evaluation against draft GLI-33 demonstrates that the software and systems conform to a broad set of well-recognized and accepted requirements for compliance suitability in a variety of markets," GLI vice president of global services Ian Hughes explained. "The evaluation of the SG Digital OpenBet platform against GLI-33 by GLI provides SG Digital, regulators, and its customers independent evaluation to its suitability."

SG Digital senior vice president of sportsbook, Keith O’Loughlin, added: "As legalized sports betting spreads across the states, we're taking every step to provide a seamless transition for our partners. Speed is of the essence, and this pre-compliance review positions us as a partner of choice for operators seeking industry-leading turnkey sportsbook solutions across land-based, online and mobile channels."
