Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) will soon be a common name around the online gambling industry, now that they have become the first online casino software testing and fairness verification laboratory to be approved by the UK Gambling Commission. Widely known in the land-based gambling industry, with nine manned offices spread out over several countries, including the UK, US, Australia, South Africa, Italy and the Netherlands, GLI and their subsidiary UK branch, GLI Europe, is already backed by highly credible credentials.

GLI currently has over four-hundred employees on the books, and has consulted casino operators and tested gambling machines and gaming software server systems in over 360 different gambling jurisdictions, including the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, The Caribbean, Asia, Russia and throughout Eastern and Western Europe. GLI now says they are ready to begin taking applications for online software testing from UK online casinos and betting sites.

According to a press release issued by GLI, the company has been preparing for a UK certification for over a year. Having upped their engineering resources to handle an increased work load, GLI is certainly well prepared for the online gaming sector and well deserves being the first accredited testing facility by the UK Gambling Commission. Peter Cercone, who is GLI Europe's General Manager, said he is looking forward to working closely with the Gambling Commission as technical requirements for all sectors of the online gaming industry are phased into regulatory practices.

All online casinos regulated under the jurisdiction of the UK Gambling Commission will be required to have proper software fairness verification tests done to accurately show the software is inherently fair. Furthermore, to ensure each software platforms Random Number Generator is operating without effectively and glitch-free, continued ongoing monitoring and testing will be done as well. Although not mentioned in their press release, it is likely that GLI will be preparing payout percentage reports for UK online casinos as well. For more information on GLI, please visit:
