FSB CEO Dave McDowell said achieving GLI 33 certification was another milestone for his company. He added that they see tremendous potential for their solutions and services in the fast-growing US regulated markets and this recent certification offers them the platform “to demonstrate that our technologies can meet the specific needs of operators and players across the board.

Regarding their GLI 33 certification, Bob Akeret, vice president of operations in North America for FSB, said he was delighted to have achieved that certification for their sports betting platform and that it shows that they are meeting “the highest standards of integrity ” prior to their US market debut.
