The stages of online casino games certification
To get a certificate confirming the high quality and safety of games, you need to go through several stages. The conditions depend on the organisation, but often such companies have similar requirements.
1. Document preparation
Before you apply for certification, you should consult with a lawyer and find out all aspects of the procedure. Lawyers will help collect a full package of necessary papers and increase the chances of getting a certificate from the testing organisation. The list of the main documents includes id copies, the registration documents, data on payouts, etc.
The owner or co-owner of the casino can apply for certification. And it doesn't matter how long you have the business.
3. Application processing
It depends on the rules of a particular jurisdiction, where the casino is registered. Experts consider the package of documents and carefully check the gambling resource: starting from RNG (random number generator) to the payout time.
If the package of documents is full, all the papers are filled in correctly, and the software meets the parameters of safety and honesty, then the testing commission gives positive feedback. The applicant receives an official certificate confirming the quality of gambling. The document is published on the gambling website together with a detailed report on the games verification, RNG certificate, and information on gamblers' payouts.
