Empowering Clients, Exceeding Expectations


For more than 30 years, Gaming Laboratories International has delivered the highest-quality land-based, lottery and iGaming testing and assessment services around the world. GLI provides suppliers, operators and regulators with expert guidance for navigating the future of gaming and ensuring gaming innovations meet regulatory standards with confidence.

GLI’s story began in 1989, 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, and it is still a valued GLI client today.

More than 30 years later, GLI has certified nearly 2 million items and has tested equipment for more than 475 jurisdictions. GLI has a global network of laboratory locations across six continents, with U.S. and international accreditations for compliance with ISO/IEC standards for technical competence in the gaming, wagering and lottery industries.

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 also offers a wide range of professional services, including world-class educational resources through GLI University. Additionally, GLI features a comprehensive suite of customized cybersecurity solutions by Bulletproof, a GLI company.

GLI is a trusted, proven adviser, offering an unparalleled range of services designed to empower regulators, operators and suppliers to achieve their goals by ensuring that the work GLI performs for its clients exceeds expectations.

GLI was named “Responsible Business of the Year” by the Global Gaming Awards in 2019 for its social responsibility in charitable giving, diversity and inclusion, green initiatives and responsible gaming support and education. Its Remote Test Bed technology was named a “Top 20 Technology” in Casino Journal’s 2020 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Awards.
