BMM Testlabs has presented the inaugural Technical infrastructure & Effective Regulation (TIER) Workshop, in collaboration with the Gaming Regulator Africa Forum (GRAF) through its committee on education and training, last week.
Held at the Monte Casino in the Republic of South Africa, the TIER Workshop ran for two days from May 9 to 10, 2016.
Penelope Ngcoya, Director of Operations BMM South Africa, said: “The Workshop is aimed at equipping participants with the knowledge they need to deal with upcoming new technologies in the gaming industry. TIER is targeted for Middle Managers, Compliance Officers and Inspectors. Attendance was extremely high at this first event, with the regulatory participants traveling from Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique, Angola, Botswana and the Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, Eastern Cape, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces from the Republic of South Africa.”
Master Maliro, CEO of the Malawi Gaming Board and Chairperson of the Education and Training Committee, expressed his satisfaction with how the training was organised and conducted, stating, “I was very pleased to see participants leaving the TIER Workshop with knowledge about current issues in the gaming industry and importantly real techniques on how to deal with those issues.”
BMM Testlabs facilitated the workshop through its Technical Compliance Director, Peter Nikiper from Las Vegas, who was assisted by Tashie Moodley, Sales and Acounts Manager from BMM’s South African office. Topics covered included: Creating Effective Regulation, Sports Betting & Daily Fantasy Sports, Field Audits, Internet/Remote Gaming, Signature Verifications and Cheats & Scams.
Ngcoya concluded: “The TIER workshop was a tremendous success. BMM extends our gratitude to the participating GRAF members for their support. Our heartfelt thanks go to all of our sponsors for their contributions towards the Workshop and the networking reception that followed the two day workshop. BMM will continue to support the growth of the African Regulatory framework.”
