A Passion for Clients’ Success Since 1989


For 30 years, Gaming Laboratories International has provided the gaming industry with innovative, reliable and cost-effective independent testing, assessment and certification services.

GLI’s story began when founders James Maida and Paul Magno created the company with a unique vision to provide a single resource for suppliers to submit their equipment for testing—rather than incurring the expense of shipping their gaming devices to multiple testing labs in multiple jurisdictions. GLI’s first client was the South Dakota Lottery, still a valued GLI client.

GLI has steadily grown and now spans 24 locations strategically situated on six continents. Since the beginning, GLI has been fulfilling its mission to help regulators, suppliers and operators with “obsession-level” customer service, and has tested and certified more than 3 million items in more than 475 jurisdictions.

GLI offers an unparalleled combination of local focus with a uniquely global perspective, allowing local gaming markets to take advantage of GLI’s formidable global testing and certification resources right in their own backyards. GLI’s global reach also provides total access into both mature and emerging land-based, iGaming and sports-wagering markets to help get products wherever they’re meant to go with consistency, speed and accuracy.

GLI’s uncompromising methodologies employ multiple rounds of testing and meticulous quality control by separate teams of mathematicians and engineers who utilize award-winning tools like 24/7 test automation to deliver the highest quality results with unsurpassed precision. GLI’s 1,250 global employees are committed to go the extra mile to provide superior customer service 365 days a year.

GLI also offers a wide range of professional services, including world-class educational resources through GLI University, which hosts the world-renowned Regulators Roundtables and produces critical, in-depth seminars and events designed to keep attendees on the leading edge of information, technology and knowledge. Additionally, GLI features a comprehensive suite of customized cybersecurity solutions by Bulletproof, a GLI Company.

Since 1989, GLI’s widely accepted gaming technical standards continue to be the unrivaled benchmark relied upon by international gaming regulators, operators and suppliers. GLI holds U.S. and international accreditations for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025, 17020 and 17065 standards for technical competence in the gaming, wagering and lottery industries.

As GLI celebrates 30 years of leadership, it hasn’t lost sight of its original mission to exceed expectations as a trusted, proven adviser, offering an unparalleled range of services designed to empower regulators, operators and suppliers to achieve their goals.
