GLI has received nearly 200 submissions for testing in the first three weeks since it achieved testing status from the NGCB
The decision to achieve third party testing status from the Nevada Gaming Control Board has clearly worked well for Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), which reports that it has received nearly 200 submissions for testing in the first three weeks since the company was named a "Registered Independent Testing Laboratory" by the Board.
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 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," he 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.
