Online casino software supplier Playtech has become a platinum member of the Gaming Standards Association (GSA) international trade group.
Playtech, which will become the organisation’s first platinum member whose business is primarily based in online gaming, will now join the GSA’s other member companies to oversee standards development for the gaming industry.
Shay Segev, Playtech’s chief operating officer, said that the firm’s experience in the industry would allow it to contribute “tremendously” to the development of gaming standards.
“The addition to GSA will also allow us to enhance our open platform functionality and ensure unification across providers’ offerings that will enable endless possibilities in terms of content integration,” he said. “Such amalgamation will simplify both operators and regulators’ needs industry wide.”
Peter DeRaedt, president of the GSA, added, “Playtech joining the association will be the driving force behind supporting our strategic plan and ensuring the association’s continued relevance within the industry.
“As a platinum member, and with their vast experience and knowledge in the interactive gaming market, Playtech will take a leadership role in our Online Gaming Committee (OGC).”
