GLI to accept submissions for skill-based games in Nevada

23 September 2015

Technical consulting and independent certification firm Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) has announced it is to begin accepting submissions in Nevada for skill-based gaming, following regulatory changes in the US state.

As reported by iGaming Business, Nevada in May approved Senate Bill 9, which will allow gaming equipment manufacturers to add a skill-based, arcade-style element to slot machines in the state.

In response, GLI will now begin accepting submissions from companies that wish to have skill-based products certified in Nevada.

Ian Hughes, vice-president of global services at GLI, said: “This is an exciting time, and our engineers and mathematicians are prepared for the adoption that occurred to meet the industry needs and play our role in ensuring product compliance.

“Nobody can fully anticipate the type of gaming products that we may see on a gaming floor in Nevada as the regulations open the door to all types of skills and hybrid games.

“GLI will work closely with the industry and the Gaming Control Board to ensure compliance.”
