Gaming Laboratories International – the test lab and inspectors for the casino gaming industry – has been recognised for its technological developments, in particular its new GLI Mobile app.

The new app is named to the “Best Productivity-Enhancement Technology” list in Global Gaming Business Magazine’s 10th annual Gaming & Technology Awards. But what does it do? Well, it’s for phone or tablet computer and allows GLI clients to take the lab with them anywhere. ANYWHERE THEY SAY. Well, except the subway of course.

After hiring some new gaming experts only last week, it seems the company are just going from strength to strength. Especially when considering the annual awards were determined by a panel of judges from across the gaming industry. So if they like the new app, then who are we to argue?

GLI Mobile state that the app is the company’s newest addition to its line of tools for regulators, suppliers and operators and is apparently a “fast, easy way for regulators, suppliers and operators to log into GLI’s global database, GLIAccess, at the speed of a download, and in the palm of your hand.” How poignant.


In other gaming news, Italian gaming regulator AAMS – or L’Amministrazione autonoma dei monopoli di Stato if you prefer its non-abbreviated name – has reopened the market for new licensees. After settling a dispute with sports betting retailer StanleyBet, the move has seen several operators receive a licence, including e-gaming bingo operator Tombola.

The news was confirmed this morning to when a spokeswoman for Tombola said: “We have been granted a licence to game in Italy.”

Don’t think you need much more confirmation than that?

Other new licensees include Italian mobile specialist Neomobile, who has had a partnership in place with Spin3, as well as two more of the larger Italian operators in Snai and Sisal Match Point.

EGR also recently reported that AAMS is set to force financial institutions to make the regulatory authority aware of any financial transactions involving unlicensed offshore operators.
