Gaming product test lab sees rush of submissions

Gaming Laboratories International 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’s Gaming Control 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, officials said in a statement on Monday.

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,” Ian Hughes, senior director of engineering and client services, said in the statement.

The State Gaming Control Board technology division this month stopped performing pre-approval of gambling games, gaming devices, associated equipment, cashless wagering systems, mobile gaming systems, and interactive gaming systems. That function has shifted to GLI and other private test labs.
