Lottery is Finalist for International Gaming-Compliance Award for Work in

CLIVE, Iowa (March 2, 2018) -- The
Iowa Lottery is a finalist for an international gaming-compliance award for its

against U.S. lotteries and resulted in guilty pleas from three men.
The Iowa Lottery is one of five
finalists for the 2018 award for outstanding achievement in compliance from
GamblingCompliance, which provides independent legal, regulatory, and business
intelligence to the global gambling industry.
GamblingCompliance presents annual
awards to recognize excellence in 11 categories focused on regulatory
compliance and responsible gaming. Its 2018 Global Regulatory Awards will be
presented April 18 in London.
The jackpot investigation culminated
in 2017 with guilty pleas from three men who admitted they illegally claimed
prizes by rigging lottery drawings in five states.
Eddie Tipton, the man at the center
of the investigation, installed malicious computer code that allowed him to
predict winning numbers in some lottery drawings.
Tipton pleaded guilty to three
felony charges in Iowa and Wisconsin and was sentenced in August 2017 to up to
25 years in prison.
He had conspired with friends and
family to claim lottery prizes in Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Wisconsin and
attempt to claim a lottery jackpot in Iowa, which ultimately was not paid.
Tipton's younger brother, Tommy
Tipton, also pleaded guilty in the case, as did Tipton's long-time friend,

LAS VEGAS, NV (March 5, 2018)
The Gaming Standards Association (GSA) has created a new, landmark
specification, the TPI (Third-Party Interface) Standard, streamlining Remote
Gaming Servers to iGaming platform interfaces, and breaking down barriers to
entry for more game content suppliers
From a highly technical perspective,
GSAs TPI Standard is based on JSON, HTTP/REST, and WebSocket technology.
It describes a standardized interface between iGaming Platforms, Remote Game
Servers, and Progressive Jackpot Controllers for launching games, recording
monetary transactions, posting progressive contributions, awarding progressive
jackpots, reconciling interrupted games, etc.
From a laypersons perspective,
GSAs TPI Standard greatly enables operators access to new content to
retain current players and attract new players keeping them from defecting to
other online casinos. TPI accomplishes this by providing greater operator
access to content through faster integrations, eliminating barriers to entry
for content providers, and reducing ongoing multiple proprietary API support

Additionally, the specification
fully supports online gaming operations that service multiple jurisdictions,
allowing the activity associated with each jurisdiction to be easily isolated
This is a major step
forward for the gaming industry generally and for the online gaming sector
specifically. Further fulfilling GSAs 20-year mission of enabling
interoperability, innovation, and unleashing creativity, our TPI Standard
streamlines the very essence of the iGaming platform, and kicks the door open
for more game content suppliers, said GSA President Peter
This is a win for operators
who want to better service their customers with a continuing stream of new
content; its a win for platform providers who can cut integration time
and support costs; and its a win for content suppliers who can now more
easily reach the marketplace. I am extremely proud of the hard work and
dedication of our volunteer team on GSAs Online Gaming
Committee, said GSA Europe Managing Director Mark Pace.
