Gaming Laboratories International LLC (GLI) says it has published the final version of a new set of standards for electronic kiosks used in the gaming industry.
A written announcement issued by GLI on Tuesday said its new document, GLI-20 Standards for Kiosks V2.0, revises core standards to include technical requirements that reflect the latest technology and account for best-in-industry practices. The new standards are said to be better aligned with the overlapping requirements of the GLI Family of Technical Standards and other recognised industry standards.
“In general, the changes are largely designed to improve the clarity and consistency of requirements,” the announcement says.
Functions of casino kiosks can include: bill breaking – issuing of change from large-denomination banknotes; processing slot-machine tickets to pay out in cash certain winnings or the credit balance left on a ticket; and the opportunity for casino customers to review the balance of their loyalty scheme points, or use such points to claim player incentives offered by the casino operator, such as meal vouchers or show tickets.
In its announcement, GLI said it had worked closely with various stakeholders in the gaming industry, including suppliers and regulators, to ensure the new standards represented the most highly developed set of technical requirements and practices available.
GLI is based in New Jersey, in the United States, and describes itself as a leader in the business of testing and certifying slot machines, online and mobile-device gaming systems, and lotteries.
All GLI standards are meant to help regulators by creating baseline technical guidelines which they can adopt and use as they see fit, and to help suppliers by guiding their design and development processes.
GLI-20 Standards for Kiosks V2.0 is accessible via the firm’s website. GLI said translations into languages other than English would be available soon.
