NMi is on target to offer online compliance testing in all regulated international markets by the end of 2010.

The UK, Alderney, Malta and Jersey are already confirmed jurisdictions, and applications to Italy, the Isle of Man and Kahnawake are well advanced.

Andrew Rosewarne of NMi said: "We saw that the right step forward was to extend our services to the ever expanding igaming industry. We have the capacity to take on the demands of emerging markets, such as in Italy, with our highly successful Italian lab," he added.

In addition to compliance testing, NMi offers customised igaming services such as Information Systems Security audits, RNG and Game Certification, as well as game maths and payout calculations.

This move by NMi comes at an interesting time for both operators and test houses, and sees them emerge as a key player in the certification industry.
