The Illinois Gaming Board (IGB) have selected Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) to do testing services for the riverboat casino markets.
“The Illinois riverboat casino and video gaming market requires a thorough understanding of the technical requirements, rules and procedures for the approval of gaming equipment. GLI’s 28 years of experience working in this environment is essential to performing a proper and timely product evaluation for Illinois. Knowing the details is critical to success, and no one understands those details like GLI,”
Peter Wolff, GLI Global Manager of Technical Compliance said.
GLI previously was an advisor to IGB in the development of technical standards for their central control and monitoring system. They then certified the system as well as each subsequent modification.
“Video gaming in Illinois is a unique and requires highly specialized knowledge of the IGB CMCS, kiosk requirements, rules that are unique to Illinois and the expectations of the IGB staff,” Wolff said.
“We have invested heavily in developing our team of experts devoted to servicing the Illinois gaming market. Our dedicated Illinois staff meets twice weekly with IGB staff to ensure projects stay on track and that our testing efficiently meets the high standards of the Illinois regulators. Doing this requires specialized knowledge and experience – it is not a service you can just create out of air. We take great pride in offering the best possible customer service and quality to our clients in the Illinois market, as we do with each of our clients worldwide,” James Maida, President and CEO of GLI said.
