Trio of live studios receive IoM Gambling Supervisory Commission (GSC) certification following successful GLI audit

Isle of Man, 27th April 2021: Three of live casino software provider Vivo Gaming’s studios have been successfully audited by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) enabling it to distribute its certified products to Isle of Man Gambling Supervisory Commission (GSC) licensees and further strengthening its regulated market footprint.

Thanks to the successful audit, Vivo Gaming is already set to go live with its first Isle of Man-based operator, Ableton Prestige Global – which will see the supplier integrate its solution with the Europe and Asia-facing operator.

GLI provides suppliers, operators, and regulators with high-quality testing and auditing services to meet or exceed regulatory standards with high confidence.

GLI, a GSC-approved independent test lab, fully audited Vivo Gaming’s studios across LatAm (Colombia), Europe (Bulgaria), and Asia (Cambodia). The Live Studio Audit was performed with the intent of identifying any actual or potential instances of non-compliance, vulnerabilities, or weaknesses and assuring that the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information under Vivo Gaming control are preserved.

GLI’s successful completion of the audit will enable the supplier to partner with a growing list of Isle of Man licensees.

In total, the leading provider currently has more than 60 live dealer tables in operation across three continents supporting 150 customers, streaming 24/7 in Asian, LatAm, and European styles. It offers baccarat, blackjack, roulette, poker, and Dragon Tiger to name just a few products, all available in more than 27 languages and 178 currencies including multiple cryptocurrencies.

Vivo Gaming is also set to further benefit from the Isle of Man approval with the ability to supply its live casino services across Colombian and Argentinian markets.

The Isle of Man is one of the most established and fastest-growing regulated jurisdictions in the world. In March, the GSC reported its highest ever number (55) of new licenses being processed, representing a 30% increase on the previous year.

Nadine Thys, Head of Account Management at Vivo Gaming said: “We are delighted to have successfully completed the audit process of three of our studios with flying colours. This allows us to open the first regulated live casino offering on the Isle of Man which is a huge milestone for us as a company and will take us to the next level as we rapidly grow our regulated footprint.

“The Isle of Man is booming as a jurisdiction and I know our thrilling package of globally facing content will strike a chord with all our new customers.”

James Illingworth, Vice President of Sales, EMEA at GLI, said: “GLI recognizes this marks an exciting time for Vivo Gaming and their Live Dealer enterprises. We enjoyed working with Vivo Gaming’s team who were helpful and professional throughout the rigorous audit processes. We hope this will be the first step to further growth for both Vivo Gaming and the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man, and that GLI will have the opportunity to further support both.”
