GLI forms South American branch

Argentina's Universidad Nacional de La Plata Director Javier Diaz (l.) signs a partnership with GLI VP Paul Magno.

Gaming Laboratories International has formed a partnership with Argentina’s Universidad Nacional de La Plata to create GLI South America. The new GLI South America will offer both gaming device and system testing services and independent field inspection services.

    It is the latest move in a campaign by GLI, the world’s largest slot testing organization, to expand internationally. Earlier this year, the organization announced the creation of its European arm with the forming of GLI Austria. With the addition of GLI South America, GLI now operates 11 offices on six continents.       

    “Since 2002, UNLP has continuously been working in topics related to control of slot machines and online systems,” said UNLP Director Javier Diaz. “The work we have been performing is interdisciplinary and involves working with information rated to hardware, software, communications, systems, database and processes, particularly as they relate to computer technology safety and technological auditing. This agreement with GLI is seen as a great advance, allowing us to get the highest international level of information and training for our professionals and technicians and to allow us to work with certifications and standards with worldwide validity.”

    “GLI is extremely pleased to be working with UNLP,” added GLI Vice President and co-founder Paul Magno. “This is a perfect fit in many ways-technological capabilities and commitment to integrity being at the forefront. UNLP has an outstanding reputation, and we are thrilled to have them as part of the GLI family as we continue to expand our services around the globe.”
