Gaming Laboratories International has this week been named an official igaming independent testing Laboratory by Ontario’s Alcohol and Gaming Commission.
This new certification allows GLI to test and authorize igaming components such as games, random number generator platforms and cyber security. The agreement will utilize the 30 years of experience that GLI has in testing and certification.
GLI already works as an official testing lab throughout all of Canada’s other regulated provinces, including the most recent online launch in Alberta. In addition to testing on behalf of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission, GLI also provides pre-certification testing and advice for operators throughout regulated jurisdictions.
“It is extremely exciting to see the future of the igaming landscape emerge in Ontario. GLI is proud to be a part of it and honored to have been registered as an authorized test lab by the AGCO,” said GLI CEO James Maida. “We’re always preparing for what’s next—land-based, digital, or both—with experts on the ground around the world. As the pioneer in igaming and sportsbook testing and certification, we know we will have much to offer, and our global professionals are ready to help in ways no one else can.”
Founded in 1989, GLI currently operates in 480 jurisdictions across six continents. The company specializes in land-based, lottery and igaming testing and assessment services.
“Beyond wanting the AGCO and province of Ontario to greatly benefit, we also want operators and suppliers to be commercially successful, all while maintaining the highest levels of integrity in compliance. Our technical and regulatory compliance teams are ready to test, consult and advise on best practices to achieve that,” added Salim Adatia, GLI vice president of client services for North America.
