Gaming-testing specialist and technical consultancy Gaming Laboratories International LLC (GLI) says it recently reached an operational milestone, hitting the 2.5-million mark for the number of gaming products it has tested and certified from the time the firm was created in 1989.
Since its launch, the company has worked with more than 475 jurisdictions around the world, U.S.-based GLI said in a press release issued on Tuesday.
“Having successfully tested and certified 2.5 million gaming machines, devices and systems thus far, we have put together the industry’s largest database of approved gaming equipment that we can reference,” GLI vice president of compliance and quality assurance, Christine Gallo, said in a statement included in the release.
She added: “We are proud of this accomplishment, and we are looking forward to maintaining this momentum for future growth.”
GLI’s release stated that the firm issues “more than 120,000 equipment certifications each year”.
It added: “The company’s large certification database allows its suppliers to quickly and easily transfer gaming equipment from one jurisdiction to another, saving testing costs and time-to-market.”
According to the testing lab, more than 130 jurisdictions worldwide “accept GLI certification letters exclusively”. GLI-exclusive markets “encompass over 100 casinos operating over 200,000 gaming devices,” the firm added.
GLI has branches in North and South America, Europe, Africa and the Asia Pacific region. The firm has three offices in Australia and one in Macau.
In September, GLI said it had had “successful involvement” in the development of mainland China’s first gaming technical standards related to lottery games.
Also in September, GLI announced it had completed and publicly released “GLI-11 version 3.0”, an updated version of its “GLI-11: Gaming Devices” standards.
