The agreement will see NMi carry out the operator’s compliance testing in the UK. NMi, which has over 40 years experience in testing and auditing, will be testing and certifying the full range of DraftKings fantasy sports contests on desktop and mobile platforms to ensure compliance with the UKGC technical standards.

Julian Borg-Barthet, Business Development Manager for the NMi Gaming Division commented: “We have had quite a bit of experience with fantasy products across Europe already, so when DraftKings approached us for the UK, NMi were in a great position to support them. Daily Fantasy Sports as a new category have phenomenal potential here, and having DraftKings as one of our clients is a proud moment for us at NMi. We’re excited to see where the relationship takes us from here.”

Jeffrey Haas, Chief International Officer, DraftKings said: “We are committed to providing competitive and entertaining contests for players while ensuring full compliance with regulatory requirements in every jurisdiction we work within.
