With locations in both Madrid and Barcelona, GLI will be able to better meet the needs of the industry and provide independent advice to regulators in each of the Autonomous Regions.”

GLI Espana will “have native Spanish speakers to facilitate European manufacturers” and will also “facilitate GLI’s work with the numerous iGaming operators and suppliers who are targeting the local Spanish markets” a press release stated.

Bally Technologies will be attempting to break records by hosting The World’s Largest Slot Machine Tournament at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California, later this month.

A company statement revealed that a Guinness World Records adjudicator is scheduled to be on-hand at the free event on 11 February, which  anyone (over the age of consent, of course) is invited to attend in order to win their share of $100,000 in prizes.

Pechanga Development Corporation President, Joaquin Fletcher, said: “Since the resort opened in 2002, Pechanga has worked to create one of the most technologically advanced slot floors anywhere, and setting this world record highlights the enormous advantages Pechanga’s casino has to offer.”

Pechanga’s team and Bally technicians have worked for the past two months to get the event up and running – and more than 1,000 machines on Pechanga’s floor will utilise Bally’s unique technology on the big day.

Bally Senior Vice President of Strategy and Customer Consulting, Bruce Rowe, said: “This is a great example of how server-based technology can create contagious excitement on games from multiple manufacturers and take one of the most popular special events for real players to a whole new level.”
