FAQs

What does RNG certification entail?

Gaming Associates have developed a risk profile relating to the Kahnawake Gaming Commission's policies, including approved technical standards and other policies and directions from time-to-time.

Gaming Associates have developed a high level questionnaire, which is distributed an interactive RTF document.  The Commission requires CPAs and applicants to complete the questionnaire and return to Gaming Associates.  Gaming Associates perform a desktop risk assessment, based on the questionnaire response and any supplementary information and provides a risk assessment to the Commission, with recommendations.  The risk assessment is undertaken in accordance with AS/NZS4360, and recommendations are based on industry best-practice and accepted practice.

The Commission approves gambling systems.  The Commission utilises Gaming Associates expertise as required.

FAQs

What does monitoring entail?

The Kahnawake Gaming Commission has directed Gaming Associates to incorporate a monitoring and analysis program into its risk management based regulatory methodology.  Gaming Associates applies its Advanced Gambling Evaluation and Analysis Systems (AEGEAS) for the Commission.

This program requires CPAs to provide sufficient information to enable the Commission to actively fulfil its objectives to be an effective, world leading regulatory authority with active scrutiny of the gambling industry it oversees.

Gaming Associates has a data definition of information required to facilitate the AEGEAS program.  Therefore, we understand that each system and functionality may have specific limitation or enhancements.  Hence the data definition is subject to liaison with each permit holder and its vendors.  Nevertheless, data provision must be sufficient to satisfy the Commission policy of active monitoring and regulation.

NB The Commission will not have every transaction and will never be in a position to replace each CPA's legal requirement in relation to financial reporting.

FAQs

What are the benefits for permit holders?

Permit Holders will, at a relatively low cost, be in a interactive gambling jurisdiction, recognised as genuinely regulated .

  • World class regulation (prevention, detection, mitigation) @ low cost, with deferred (monitoring) payments

  • reduced risk of jurisdiction and permit holders being damaged, by association, by one insolvent licensee

  • increase the likelihood of being included on the UK "White List"

  • enhanced reputation of jurisdiction will increase value of business established in jurisdiction

  • enhanced reputation of jurisdiction & value, will increase investment into jurisdiction creating greater scales of economy and lower cost per permit holder

  • certification of website from recognised & respected regulatory authority = increased customer acceptance = increased revenue

  • monthly certification from recognised & respected regulatory authority = increased customer acceptance = increased revenue

  • provides defence against attacks from US relating to money laundering & inadequate regulation

The bottom line is that for a sustainable cost it is considered permit holders will decrease their risk and increase value.
