GLI Launches in Chile, Finishes Puerto Rico Work

Leading gaming testing company Gaming Laboratories International announced that it has become the first testing lab to issue certifications under the standards set by Chile’s Superintendence of Casinos, Chile Regulators (SCJ). GLI is the only lab accredited to test in Chile, having been approved in 2010.

Since then, GLI has been performing testing and certification for the jurisdiction per the provisional homologation process, up until the SCJ issued its final technical standards in December 2013, when the new homologation process was established.

GLI’s Latin America Division has been on the ground in Chile working very closely with the SCJ in the development of its final technical standards as consultants, and more recently concentrated its efforts by performing an onsite workshop with the SCJ. This effort ended in GLI adapting its testing process to the new technical standards and satisfying the specific requirements and needs of the jurisdiction, resulting in the successful launch of the new certification process.

Company officials say the Chile certification is the latest evidence of an ongoing commitment to Latin American regulation. For instance, GLI recently completed a jurisdiction-wide inspection of all gaming devices and systems in Puerto Rico. The 12-week inspection covered 23 casinos and 7,690 gaming devices.
