To evaluate business value of common messaging protocol

GSA creates Internet gaming study committee

(US).- As gaming migrates to new forms of distribution like the Internet, the Gaming Standards Association is committed to understanding how this affects its members as well as the protocols that connect products in any gaming market. With this idea, GSA has created the Internet Gaming Study Committee.

C

omprised of GSA members from around the world, the committee will determine if a business need exists for a standardized internet gaming protocol, much as standardized GSA protocols have benefited land-based casino operations.

GSA President Peter DeRaedt said, “GSA members who are both operators and manufacturers are very interested in understanding how an Internet gaming standard would benefit the gaming industry at large. It is clear that there is significant overlap between what happens in the online and offline gaming segments.”

The committee will not be writing protocol standards, but examining the operator and supplier environment, technology and regulatory landscape to understand how common protocols might benefit all concerned. It expects to report on its findings as early as this summer.

DeRaedt said, “This is a vital investigation, because Internet gaming holds a tremendous potential. We look forward to sharing our findings with the global gaming industry, further proving the crucial role GSA plays.”
