Jackpot Digital has announced that it has passed all scheduled testing and received multiple certifications from Gaming Labs International (GLI) for the Company’s Next Generation Jackpot Blitz dealerless electronic multiplayer poker tables.
The Company has been working since early 2023 toward GLI certification for its newest Jackpot Blitz gaming machine so that it can begin installations across the USA and around the world. Most casinos worldwide require GLI certification before any gaming machine can be installed. The Company has now obtained the following GLI certifications for its newest Jackpot Blitz:
- GLI-11 – Gaming Devices in Casinos
- GLI-12 – Progressive Gaming Devices in Casinos
- GLI-13 – On-Line Monitoring and Control Systems
- GLI-21 – Client -Server Systems
- GLI-24 – Electronic Table Game Systems
The Company’s Next Generation Jackpot Blitz machine allows for direct cash in / ticket out functionality and supports the Slot Accounting System (SAS) protocol, allowing for integration with most casino management systems. These two key components are required by most land-based casinos.
Jackpot has already obtained vendor licensing in several jurisdictions, and securing GLI certification means the Company will begin the process of installing its gaming machines into several land-based casinos in Q4, 2023. Furthermore, it will allow the Company to pursue and close additional order interest that was contingent upon the Company completing GLI certification.
Jake Kalpakian, President & CEO of Jackpot Digital, said: “We are very excited that Jackpot Blitz has now passed its recent GLI testing, which is a key requirement for land-based deployment of our machines and a significant milestone for our Company. Until recently, we have largely been a cruise ship focused business, and have been limited from entering the land-based market in any significant way. That has now changed. We can now start installing our order backlog into land-based casinos, the market segment which we expect will drive significant growth for the Company.”
“Independent lab certification ensures casino machines are safe, reliable, regulated, and fair for casino guests and operators alike. The testing process can be lengthy and is extremely thorough with attention to detail, which ensures the integrity of our gaming machines. Now that we have reached this milestone, we’re ready to address the demand we are seeing for Jackpot Blitz,” Mr. Kalpakian added.
