Pair of independent testing labs for gaming equipment OK'd by Nevada

22 June 2012

The Gaming Control Board Thursday approved Gaming Laboratories International and BMM International as the state's first independent testing laboratories to certify gaming equipment for use in Nevada casinos.

Approval followed a comprehensive investigation by gaming control agents.

Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli said registered testing labs will allow the state to expand its resource base with respect to new technologies. The agency's technology division will now focus on establishing policy, certifying the labs and staying ahead of tech trends.

"The registration of independent test labs ensures Nevada's longer term competitive standing in the gaming industry," Lipparelli said.
