or more than 20 years, Gaming Laboratories International has been the world leader in independent testing for the gaming industry. With 13 testing laboratories spread across Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America, GLI is the only laboratory of its kind to hold both U.S. and International accreditations for compliance with ISO 17025 and 17020 standards for technical competence in testing and inspection services.
GLIAccess is the driving force on the back-end of GLI’s website, www.gaminglabs.com, where regulators and suppliers can quickly and easily track and verify submissions and certifications. Point. Click.Transfer. is an online application that allows suppliers to quickly and easily transfer previously tested and certified products into new jurisdictions around the world, literally with the click of a mouse.
Also on the Innovation Station at IGE 2010 is GLI Verify, a handheld tool regulators use in the field to verify that the games and systems operating on a casino floor have been tested and certified by the lab. GLI has just released its latest version, 5.0, which faster and easier to use, and enables regulators to take the lab with them to the casino floor.
Additionally, GLI will show its amazing new GLI Link that brings global interoperability testing as close as the nearest lab. With GLI Link, suppliers can test devices against systems for interoperability over the internet, with no physical shipping of devices.
Making sure that games and systems talk to each other correctly and give accurate reporting of casino activity is absolutely vital to ensure accurate transfer of information, including accounting and security events, and more and more jurisdictions are requiring this type of testing. However, shipping devices and systems all over the world can be cumbersome, expensive and delay time to market. To solve that problem, GLI’s engineers created GLI Link.
GLI Link connects manufacturers’ products and operators’ systems online, and expands interoperability testing to every GLI lab. With GLI Link, interoperability testing can performed on any game with virtually any system from any GLI lab in any time zone.
With GLI Link, suppliers can test against specific casino configurations in their local lab, in their own time zone. GLI Link eliminates wasted time and cost and streamlines the testing process.
In addition to discussing its technologies, GLI will spend time talking one-on-one with regulators about the new devices and systems on the tradeshow floor. It will also be talking about its upcoming 6th European Regulators Roundtable, which takes place 15-16 April in the Netherlands. The Roundtable is an important event where GLI updates regulators on the latest technologies and their potential impact on jurisdictions throughout Europe.
