Technology testing labs in gaming got their start in the late 1980s when it became clear that the regulatory agencies weren’t going to be able to tackle the problem of testing slot machines on a timely basis. BMM Testlabs was one of the first companies that arose to fill this void. Travis Foley has been COO of the company for more than 10 years and he explains how BMM works with regulators to ensure that not only slot machines but all the technology that is available to operators from gaming suppliers does what it says it does. This now includes online gaming and sports betting technology. Foley spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at G2E in Las Vegas in October.
