Puerto Rico – GLI completes 7,690 machine inspection in Puerto RicoBy Phil - 26 June 2014
Gaming Laboratories International has completed a jurisdiction-wide inspection of all gaming devices and systems in Puerto Rico.
The 12-week inspection covered 23 casinos and 7,690 gaming devices.
GLI Director of Latin American Development Karen Sierra-Hughes said: “We have worked very hard to earn and maintain a high level of trust by regulatory entities to perform duties that support their regulatory objectives. In this case, our objective was to help Puerto Rican regulators to continue the high level of integrity of the Puerto Rico Slot Operation, thereby creating a safer gaming environment for the public, and we are very pleased with our successful completion of this inspection.”
Andy Viera, Director of Gaming of Puerto Rico Tourism, added: “Puerto Rico casinos’ field inspections are intended to maintain the integrity and compliance status of the hardware and software components that are installed and operating in our gaming jurisdiction. The results generated from GLI’s field inspections will provide the Puerto Rico Tourism Company the information needed to determine the current approval status for any piece of software and hardware that has been verified. One of our goals has been to maintain the public trust on the casino games, and this certification validates our efforts to achieve this objective.”
GLI has been working with regulators in Puerto Rico for more than 10 years. The company has worked with regulators in the jurisdiction since before gaming was regulated on the island, assisting in rule-writing and a wide range of other types of consultation.
