Northern Marianas Adopt GLI Standards

Leading gaming testing company Gaming Laboratories International announced that the Commonwealth Casino Commission (CCC) of the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) has adopted Gaming Laboratories International’s technical standards, known as the GLI Standards Series.

The CCC has also recognized GLI as an independent test lab for a new Saipan-based casino, expected to open later this month.

 The commonwealth is a new gambling jurisdiction, and the temporary casino in Saipan will be the jurisdiction’s first. GLI has worked closely with the CCC over the past several months to ensure it is empowered to execute a first-class regulatory model for the slot machines and other gambling equipment operated by Best Sunshine International Ltd., which will operate the new casino.

 GLI Australia Senior Manager of Regulation Compliance and QA Phil Harrison said, “We are honored to have been chosen by the CCC to lend our global expertise to this new jurisdiction. The GLI Standards Series is recognized worldwide for bringing clarity and structure to operators,

suppliers and regulators. Beyond the Standards

Series, we were privileged to consult with the

jurisdiction and help to create a foundation for long-lasting success.”
