ndependent testing of fantasy sports sites provides consumers with greater confidence in the service and allows operators to establish credibility and maintain player loyalty.
FSTA research also states that 48 percent of players (the highest response of eight categories), chose the website to play because they trusted the site.
“The exponential growth in fantasy sports players, combined with the fact that players choose their sites to play primarily because they trust the site, clearly speaks to the need for these sites to be properly tested,” said GLI President/CEO James Maida.
“GLI’s fantasy sports white paper provides information regarding current regulatory environments, GLI’s testing services, testing results, and the easy steps operators can follow to submit their website for GLI’s experts to analyze. and GLI is, here to provide a means for fantasy sports operators to demonstrate the integrity, value, security and fairness of their product.” added GLI Vice President, iGaming & Canadian Services Salim Adatia.
