Jackpot Digital Receives GLI Certifications for Land-based Jackpot Blitz





Jackpot Digital has announced that it has passed all scheduled testing and received multiple certifications from Gaming Labs International (GLI) for the Company’s Next Generation Jackpot Blitz dealerless electronic multiplayer poker tables.

The Company has been working since early 2023 toward GLI certification for its newest Jackpot Blitz gaming machine so that it can begin installations across the USA and around the world. Most casinos worldwide require GLI certification before any gaming machine can be installed. The Company has now obtained the following GLI certifications for its newest Jackpot Blitz:

  • GLI-11 – Gaming Devices in Casinos
  • GLI-12 – Progressive Gaming Devices in Casinos
  • GLI-13 – On-Line Monitoring and Control Systems
  • GLI-21 – Client -Server Systems
  • GLI-24 – Electronic Table Game Systems

The Company’s Next Generation Jackpot Blitz machine allows for direct cash in / ticket out functionality and supports the Slot Accounting System (SAS) protocol, allowing for integration with most casino management systems. These two key components are required by most land-based casinos.

Jackpot has already obtained vendor licensing in several jurisdictions, and securing GLI certification means the Company will begin the process of installing its gaming machines into several land-based casinos in Q4, 2023. Furthermore, it will allow the Company to pursue and close additional order interest that was contingent upon the Company completing GLI certification.

Jake Kalpakian, President & CEO of Jackpot Digital, said: “We are very excited that Jackpot Blitz has now passed its recent GLI testing, which is a key requirement for land-based deployment of our machines and a significant milestone for our Company. Until recently, we have largely been a cruise ship focused business, and have been limited from entering the land-based market in any significant way. That has now changed. We can now start installing our order backlog into land-based casinos, the market segment which we expect will drive significant growth for the Company.”


“Independent lab certification ensures casino machines are safe, reliable, regulated, and fair for casino guests and operators alike. The testing process can be lengthy and is extremely thorough with attention to detail, which ensures the integrity of our gaming machines. Now that we have reached this milestone, we’re ready to address the demand we are seeing for Jackpot Blitz,” Mr. Kalpakian added.

Reading Time: < 1 minute


The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has requested that Australian internet service providers (ISPs) to block more illegal offshore gambling websites, after investigations found these services to be operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.

The latest sites blocked include A Big Candy, Jackpoty and John Vegas Casino.

Website blocking is one of a range of enforcement options to protect Australians against illegal online gambling. Since the ACMA made its first blocking request in November 2019, 995 illegal gambling and affiliate websites have been blocked.


Over 220 illegal services have also pulled out of the Australian market since the ACMA started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017.

NJ Governor Murphy Establishes Task Force to Support Responsible Gaming





New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has signed Executive Order No. 360, establishing a Responsible Gaming Task Force responsible for providing advice and recommendations to the Governor’s Office and to the Attorney General regarding reforms to support responsible gaming and to address problem gambling in New Jersey.

A rise in problem gambling has been observed over the past few years, according to a 2023 report from the Rutgers University Center for Gambling Studies. The Rutgers study estimated that 6% of New Jersey residents are at high risk for problem gambling, which is significantly higher than the national average of 1-2%, with the highest rates affecting Black/African American or Hispanic residents.

“New Jersey is known to be a gaming destination with historic locations like Atlantic City, amusement gaming at the Jersey Shore, notable horse racing venues, and more. This Task Force will see to it that we maintain our global leadership in gaming by ensuring that we have the tools needed to address problem gaming for our residents,” said Governor Murphy.

“I applaud Governor Murphy for his leadership in elevating responsible gaming initiatives through the establishment of a statewide task force. New Jersey has been a national leader in casino and sports wagering for many years, and we owe it to our residents to review and expand our existing efforts on problem gambling. This task force demonstrates that ‘responsible gaming’ is not merely a buzzword in New Jersey, but a critical issue that demands the attention of government entities, industry, and stakeholders. As Chair of the task force, I’m eager to get underway in examining ways to help bring attention to and support the prevention and treatment of gambling disorder,” said Attorney General Platkin.


The responsibilities of the Responsible Gaming Task Force will be to review several areas of the problem gambling landscape, including the effects on underage and vulnerable communities; develop strategies to achieve responsible gaming; and make recommendations for policy changes to address the issue of problem gambling.

Members of the Task Force will consist of seven government representatives or their designees, including:

The Attorney General, who shall serve as Chair;

The Chair of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission;

The Director of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs;


The Director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement;

The Director of the Division of State Lottery;

The Executive Director of the New Jersey Racing Commission; and

The Commissioner of the Department of Human Services.

The Task Force may consult with experts, representatives of regulated entities, or other knowledgeable individuals in the public or private sector with respect to any aspect of its mission.
