Gaming Laboratories International’s (GLI) Asia-Pacific (APAC) operations, led by GLI Australia, has become the first independent accredited gaming test laboratory to successfully complete and issue IP Blocking Certificates for Philippine Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) Licensees, pursuant to PAGCOR’s existing POGO Rules and Regulations.
GLI’s testing and resultant certificates were undertaken in accordance with a Memorandum issued by PAGCOR to all POGO Licensees, requiring them to ensure that their IP addresses used for offshore gaming operation were not accessible within the jurisdiction of the Philippines, on or before 15 March, 2018.
GLI’s vice-president of iGaming Salim Adatia said: “We are honored to be the first PAGCOR-accredited gaming laboratory to test and certify various IP blocking protocols and solutions for POGO Licensees.
“We knew the importance PAGCOR placed on this mandate and how paramount IP blocking integrity is to this jurisdiction, which now hosts the largest number of online gaming operators in the APAC region.”
“Through our Adelaide, Sydney, and Macau test facilities, we are delighted to provide PAGCOR POGO license holders with the highest quality and most effective IP blocking testing services in the industry,” added Marina Wong, GLI Asia’s general manager of client services.
GLI is authorised to provide independent testing and professional services to the Philippines, all Australian states and territories, New Zealand, Macau, Singapore and other APAC gaming jurisdictions.
