Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) Receives Nearly 200 Submissions in First Three Weeks Under New Testing Arrangement With Nevada Gaming Control Board

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jul 23, 2012) - Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), the world's leading gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy, has received nearly 200 submissions for testing in the first three weeks since the company was named a "Registered Independent Testing Laboratory" by the State of Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB).

The submissions include every type of gaming product, from iGaming to sports book devices and systems, as well as slot products and casino management systems.

The devices and systems are being tested at GLI's 86,000 square foot laboratory in Las Vegas, where more than 100 of GLI's 750 employees are located.

"We have been carefully planning for this moment. We have increased our staff, capacity and lab size to ensure the influx of new submissions is met with the industry-leading quality, integrity and turnaround times that regulators, suppliers and operators in 455 jurisdictions expect from GLI," said GLI Sr. Director of Engineering and Client Services Ian Hughes.

"Since March, we have increased our Nevada staff by nearly 40 percent. We have also expanded our lab space again and are now actively utilizing more than 65,000 square feet of testing space," Hughes added.

As of July 1, 2012, the State Gaming Control Board Technology Division no longer performs the pre-approval of gambling games, gaming devices, associated equipment, cashless wagering systems, mobile gaming systems, and interactive gaming systems. Pre-approval for all of these devices has moved over to private, independent test labs, such as GLI.

GLI serves more than 455 global jurisdictions, more than 130 of which exclusively accept GLI certification letters.

For nearly 25 years, Gaming Laboratories International, LLC has been the world leader in providing independent testing, inspection and certification services to the gaming, wagering and lottery industry. GLI also offers independent network and information security assessments to its regulatory, lottery and supplier clients. With 20 laboratory locations located across Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe, North America and South America, GLI is the only global organization of its kind to hold U.S. and international accreditations for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025, 17020 and guide 65 standards for technical competence in the gaming, wagering and lottery industries.
