James Maida is a legend in the casino business. As a lawyer in the New Jersey regulatory system, he quickly saw that his agency was getting overwhelmed with requests to test slot machine systems, and began to do it himself out of his spare bedroom in his apartment. Today, GLI has grown into an international company serving the needs of the gaming industry and regulators alike. The recent coronavirus pandemic has changed the world and GLI is leading the way. Maida recognizes that remote access to games is going to be a major change, and regulators are going to want to be assured that transparency and integrity can be maintained. Maida spoke with GGB Editor Frank Legato for the cover of the magazine’s August edition.
