TableMAX gets GLI certification For Caribbean DrawBased on significant player demand, casinos across North America continue to install TableMAX Systems on their floors, and now operators have another popular game to offer. TableMAX Gaming, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of TableMAX Corp., a developer of electronic table games, has received GLI certification for its Caribbean Draw poker game.
Caribbean Draw poker plays much the same as Caribbean Stud poker, but allows the player to discard up to two cards, which further enhances the feel of a “live” table game experience and increases the player’s interactivity. The game also features an exciting optional 50 cent side bet, enabling TableMAX’s exclusive progressive jackpot.
GLI Italy completes major expansionResponding to increased customer demand, Gaming Laboratories International has completed an expansion of its GLI Italy lab. The expansion includes an increase in lab size, added engineers and support staff and enlarged device storage area.
The expansion was prompted by increased workload from manufacturers and suppliers submitting new and modified games for the Italian Comma 6A market, and will allow the lab to serve more customers and to continue to deliver world-class customer service.
“We have seen a significant increase in the number of testing submissions we are receiving because of a recent clarification of the Comma 6A game and protocol requirements and the changes to the certification process by AAMS,” said Rocco Ramos, GLI Italy technical manager.
GLI Italia also has seen an increase in submissions for international jurisdictions. The company has focused on training engineers to work in both the domestic Italian market as well as being able to test for international standards such as GLI – 11, 12, 13, and 22.
GLI has 13 testing laboratories spread across Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, South America and the United States.
GLI Asia celebrates lab grand openingMore than 55 regulators and other dignitaries joined GLI Asia for the February grand opening of its GLI Asia Interoperability and Testing Center, the first gaming test lab in the region.
The event drew a large mix of dignitaries from across the region and from many aspects of the industry, including suppliers, government officials, operators and regulators.
The GLI Asia Interoperability and Testing Center will serve several regional markets such as mainland China (lottery), Japan, Macau, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and other emerging Asian gaming and lottery markets. Many of these markets have already used GLI’s services including Macau, China (lottery), Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan.
“Our goal was to have more than just a testing laboratory or a ‘Macau office,’ said Larry Xiao, GLI Asia general manager. “Our goal was to establish an Asian base for GLI, which we now have. From GLI Asia, we serve multiple countries along the Pacific Rim, including their governments, local and international suppliers, as well as the casino and lottery operators.”
