Pennsylvania gaming chiefs sign up testing lab

Gaming officials in Pennsylvania have signed up BMM Testlabs to perform testing services.

Pennsylvania gaming officials have struck a deal with an experienced testing lab.

BBM Testlabs has been approved by state officials to perform independent testing services. The firm will now test and certify gaming equipment within the state.

In an official statement, Chief Operating Officer Travis Foley said:

BMM has been licensed and approved by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board as an ITL since 2015. We are pleased to have received this new approval and appreciate the opportunity to continue to provide our expertise across the interactive gaming space.

With this approval, the firm will test interactive game software and themes within board regulations. They will also be required to provide test reports to the Boards Gaming Lab.

BMM has offered testing services since 1981, making them one of the most established independent test labs. The company serves over 400 jurisdictions and are headquartered in Las Vegas.

The new deal coincides with recent exciting PA gambling developments. In July, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board opened up applications for online gambling within the state. Nine brands showed interest in interactive gaming products.

Earlier in the month, the PGCB also confirmed that three of these casinos were successful in their applications. Harrah's Casino, Parx and Mount Airy were all given the green light for interactive gaming products. However, they will have to hand over $10 million in licensing fees before their certificates are granted.

Pennsylvania online casinos are expected to go live later this year.
