GLI Link brings the test lab to the gaming machine—GLI Verify brings the GLI database to the industry
Thanks to GLI's proprietary and Ethernetrouted GLI Link system, a gaming machine can be tested remotely in jurisdiction A against a set of predetermined criteria, including interoperability with other manufacturers' games and systems, while being physically located on the other side of the world in jurisdiction B, closer to the supplier R&D team.
In addition, all the organisations with a stake in running a legal and fair gaming industry—the regulators, the suppliers and the officially licensed casino operators—can access information from GLI via the Internet on the progress of that testing process and on compliance requirements for different types of devices, and they can also learn about the different testing services available from GLI. In addition, thanks to an IP tool called GLI Verify, regulators and other industry stakeholders can check on, download and print compliance certificates already issued on gaming machines by GLI.
"If you visit our website, the front end is marketing and where we're located, but the back end, the GLI Access portion, is all password protected, providing information for regulators and suppliers," says Ms Eickelman.
