Represents continuation of one of company's first two contracts when it was founded in 1989

Gaming Laboratories International has been testing gaming devices and systems for the South Dakota Commission on Gaming since GLI’s founding in 1989, and now the company has renewed its exclusive testing contract with the Commission.

“We depend on GLI to provide technical compliance testing and consulting services to the Commission to assist us in the regulation of Deadwood gaming. GLI’s testing capabilities help the Commission and its staff to develop and implement regulations that are applicable to ever-changing technology, so we can maintain the public trust that is essential for the success of this industry,” said Larry Eliason, executive secretary of the South Dakota Commission on Gaming.

GLI Senior Director of Corporate Compliance Andy Comer noted GLI is thrilled that the South Dakota Commission on Gaming has renewed its exclusive contract with GLI. “For more than 20 years, GLI has been serving regulators in South Dakota, both with the Commission on Gaming and the South Dakota Lottery, and we are very pleased that the State trusts GLI’s abilities and values our relationship as much as we do,” Comer said. Under terms of this agreement, GLI provides comprehensive testing on a wide variety of gaming equipment including slots, systems and peripheral equipment.

GLI has a separate, exclusive contract with the South Dakota Lottery. The contracts with the South Dakota Commission on Gaming and the South Dakota Lottery Commission were the first contracts in GLI’s history, which has since grown to more than 450 jurisdictions globally.

With 15 laboratories spread across Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America, GLI is the only global organization of its kind to hold U.S. and international accreditations for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025, 17020 and Guide 65 standards for technical competence in the gaming industry. GLI offers independent third party evaluation and certification of gaming technology, devices and systems in addition to providing network and information security assessments.
