BMM Recognized by Mexico

Gaming testing organization BMM International announced that Mexico’s regulatory agency Normalizacion y Certificacion Electronica (NYCE) has formally recognized BMM as a testing facility for technical standards known as NMX, used by many casinos in Mexico.

BMM and NYCE worked together to give all global products a clear path to meet the voluntary certification requirements. “BMM is committed to the gaming industry in Mexico, and seeks to bring its knowledge and experience to the market to help foster its successful growth,” said Mik Dreitzer, BMM’s COO for the Americas. “Mexico has a very large gambling market, and BMM sees a bright future for this industry for both operators and manufacturers.”

BMM Global President and CEO Martin Storm added, “BMM has committed many resources to reaching this goal and we are very pleased to bring this process to fruition. In particular, we wish to thank NYCE President Gerardo Hernandez Garza and Carlos Perez Munguia, NYCE national director, for their support and encouragement during this process. We look forward to many years of service in this market, and are appreciative of NYCE’s recognition of BMM.”

“Although the landscape of the regulatory framework in Mexico is an evolving process, by working with NYCE as BMM has been, we continue to support the stakeholders in the Mexican gaming industry to the greatest extent possible,” said Dreitzer.

Mexico has more than 70,000 gaming devices operating in over 300 slot parlors.
