FansUnite has added gaming experience to its Board of Directors with the appointment of Quinton Singleton.
The company has also obtained a GLI-33 Event Wagering Systems certification from Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) for its Chameleon Platform as a service sportsbook solution.
FansUnite adds Singleton to Board
Joining the FansUnite Board, Singleton brings with him over 15 years of gaming industry experience across tribal and commercial land-based, as well as digital/mobile operators, and suppliers for traditional sports, racing, fantasy sports, casino, social, skill, slot, and table games.
FansUnite has stated that Singleton’s experience will provide the company’s management team with expert guidance on operation optimization, new market product launches, growth strategy, and developing and implementing a successful expansion in North America.
“We are pleased to welcome Quinton as the latest addition to our Board of Directors,” commented Scott Burton, CEO of FansUnite.
“Our goal is to continue expanding our operations through the execution of an effective North American strategy that meets the strict local betting regulatory standards and with the arrival of Quinton, we expect to expedite the process given his previous track record of growing gaming companies and implementing successful go-to-market strategies for various gaming companies and products.
“We look forward to working under his guidance in executing strategic initiatives that will enable us to expand across this continent.”
Before joining FansUnite, Singleton was part of Bet.Works Corp’s founding team, where he served as Chief Operating Officer. He has also worked for NYX Gaming Group as its Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Government Affairs and is currently a part-time university lecturer at the UNLV International Center for Gaming Regulation.
Harish Narayanan has also resigned as a member of the FansUnite Board. The company thanked him for providing “valuable insight on key strategic initiatives and was integral to FansUnite’s growth” during its early stages.
Chameleon Platform receives GLI certification
FansUnite has also announced that its Chameleon Platform has achieved GLI-33 Event Wagering Systems certification as a service sportsbook solution.
The GLI-33 standard “represents comprehensive and rigorous technical requirements for sports and event wagering systems, which is compliant with the legal requirements of various betting jurisdictions in the United States”.
With the certification, FansUnite can meet the compliance requirements of US regulators, as well as earn credibility as a technology supplier for the US sports betting market.
“The FansUnite development and compliance team came prepared, and worked conscientiously with the GLI test team throughout both the pre-certification and certification testing phases,” stated Salim L Adatia, GLI’s Vice President of Client Services for North America.
“FansUnite’s diligence and cooperation ultimately contributed to the efficiency and success of their GLI-33 evaluation project.”
Clients that use the Chameleon Platform are given access to its back-office reporting and management tools, but the platform itself is installed and managed by FansUnite.
Burton added: “The GLI-33 certification validates the robustness of our technology infrastructure as it allows us to be recognized by US gaming regulators and operators as a trusted supplier for sports and event wagering solutions.
“As part of our US licensing and expansion strategy, we intend to expedite the process of entering into the US gaming market and this includes being compliant with GLI standards. I would like to recognize and thank the development team at FansUnite for achieving this milestone as we continue to lay the groundwork to expand across the United States.”
