GLI set for regulator conference

Sep 16, 2003 6:31 AM

Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), the world’s premier gaming products and systems testing company, is preparing to launch the third season of its successful regulator roundtables.

The new season begins October 27 & 28 and takes place at the Hyatt Regency Denver. The roundtable is scheduled to coincide with the Rocky Mountain Gaming Summit, which is held October 28-30. GLI presents the roundtable free of charge as a service to gaming regulators.

Topics to be discussed will include downloadable games, wireless draft standards, promotional systems, Class II vs. Class III, Internet vs. intranet, and other topics dealing with ticketing/cashless gaming.

"We have achieved tremendous success with the roundtable series over the past two years, and we are excited to begin our third season," said GLI co-founder and president James R. Maida. "The roundtable series is the only one of its kind in the world and allows for invaluable interaction between GLI and regulators, as well as between the regulators themselves."

GLI expects to welcome regulators from jurisdictions across North America to the seminar. Last year’s seminar drew more than 80 participants from nearly 40 jurisdictions.

GLI tests and certifies gaming products for use in 199 jurisdictions in the United States, Canada and in Tribal casinos across North America, and services more than 360 jurisdictions worldwide.

"The exchange of information that takes place during the two-day event ultimately benefits the entire industry, and we are proud to be a sponsor of such an experience," Maida said.

The October seminar kicks off a tour that will take GLI to regulators’ jurisdictions around the world. Last year, the roundtable series toured Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Calgary, Alberta, Phoenix, Ariz., and Prior Lake, Minn. The Paskenta Gaming Commission hosted the latest roundtable in August at Rolling Hills Casino in Corning, Calif.
