“GSA Executive Overview: Game Authentication”

A partnership announced earlier this year between the Gaming Standards Association (GSA) and iGaming Academy (IGA) has resulted in the launch of the first in a series of e-learning modules titled “GSA Executive Overview: Game Authentication.”

The course, available for purchase from the iGaming Academy e-shop, serves as an insight into the fundamentals of Game Authentication Terminal standards (GAT) and is targeted at those with an interest in learning how to deliver high quality software in order to ensure player protection and game integrity.

“GSA is pleased to launch this first course in our e-learning initiative. As I said at the time we announced our partnership with iGaming Academy, GSA’s membership operates across multiple time zones. We are now able to offer premium learning that is available on-demand, allowing our members to learn on their schedule,” GSA President Peter DeRaedt said.

The GAT protocol, developed over two decades ago, provides a mechanism that enables regulators and operators to verify that only approved software is running in gaming machines.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
