VANCOUVER, B.C. – Jackpot Digital announced 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 in the U.S. and around the world. 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 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. It will also allow the company to pursue and close additional order interest that was contingent upon the company completing GLI certification.
“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,” said Jake Kalpakian, Jackpot President & CEO. “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.”
Year-to-date, Jackpot has announced land-based installations or orders for 36 tables in 11 states and territories in the U.S. and growing, including California, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Washington, as well as several international jurisdictions.
“Independent lab certification ensures casino machines are safe, reliable, regulated, and fair for casino guests and operators alike,” said Kalpakian. “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 are ready to address the demand we are seeing for Jackpot Blitz.”
