Testing includes, in any case, platform and content testing. Depending on the type of game (slot machines, poker, roulette, etc.) and the applicable requirements additional tests are included in the test plan. Below is an overview of the specific services we provide. We will inform you about the tests that are necessary for the market where you want to introduce your product.
The gaming platform is the heart of any online game. This includes the user interface, game server, accounts, reporting and any essential component that fully connects. Any legislation sets requirements for these essential elements.
NMi tests all types of game content including slots, scratch cards, table games like roulette and baccarat, and peer-to-peer games like poker rooms.
On a regular basis new games are developed, they are based on previously certified content or new language versions, functions or mathematical models that are developed for existing games. In this case, the test procedures can be adjusted, thus reducing processing times.
Some regulators require an audit of the operating systems security. This includes for instance penetration tests, vulnerability, threat and risk assessments. Other regulators require assessment of control policies, procedures and controls, as defined in ISO 27001. Click here for more information about online security.
Systems that offer simulation games use Random Number Generators (RNG) to generate random outcomes. The qualified software engineers and mathematicians of NMi, test both the software and hardware RNG under different conditions. As a result, it is shown that the system generates random statistical results and that the outcomes are unpredictable.
NMi has years of experience with the assessment of land based casinos and lotteries. The assessment of live dealers for iGaming websites is done in a similar way. Additional checks are performed on the security, saving results, countering conspiracies and cheating. The equipment used is also tested for unpredictability.
Online sports betting (fixed odds betting, gambling pools and betting exchanges) requires additional security, like the accuracy of the offered odds and fair settlement of the winning bet.
Usually operators and game providers need authorizations for multiple regulations. By performing delta testing and updating the previous/existing certificates can be customized to meet more stringent requirements. NMi has extensive experience with different types of regulations and languages. To demonstrate that you meet the requirements a complete report will be made for each regulatory authority.
If regulatory requirements or if the operator requests it, NMi offers a periodic review of game distribution. If customers can arrange supervision, NMi can judge the method to meet the requirements of the regulator.
