Testing and Emulation Program


The complexity of today’s modern gaming devices is increasing exponentially, and requires new and even more innovative ways to test for myriad variables without sacrificing productivity, efficiency and accuracy. GLI’s automated Testing and Emulation Program is a unique and propriety automated testing methodology that builds on GLI’s quality, accuracy and speed, provides new layers of testing consistency, and further speeds time to market.

This program was developed in-house by a team of engineers who were exclusively assigned to the project. Working closely with suppliers worldwide over the past four years, GLI engineers created its new test automation process that further increases testing quality, and performs even better tests.

GLI successfully integrated the new automated testing process on several supplier platforms, with many more in development. Test automation is already proving to be a valuable tool for testing increasingly complex and sophisticated gaming devices more thoroughly, efficiently and accurately.

Test automation has a positive impact on project turnaround time and dramatically increases the percentage of game-play coverage and game mechanics that can be tested. Moreover, because it runs 24/7 with little or no human supervision required, efficiencies run beyond the typical business day and span every time zone.

Using testing automation, suppliers are able to take full advantage of a 24/7 testing process, and potential development errors are discovered in the safety of the lab, and not on the casino floor. Further, when suppliers use GLI’s testing automation, they have the added revenue potential of being able to sell into the jurisdictions that accept GLI testing results. GLI is the only independent test lab that can take suppliers everywhere, because GLI is the only independent test lab licensed in every jurisdiction that takes ITL results.
