Gaming Laboratories International is the first lab to achieve accreditation to test online gaming, wagering, and retail sports betting in Peru. The license expands a longstanding relationship between GLI and DGJCMT (Dirección General de Juegos de Casino y Máquinas Tragamonedas) from beyond land-based testing to the fast-paced world of online gaming, wagering, and retail sports betting.

With this formal accreditation, GLI is approved to test and audit the variety of online gaming and wagering offerings and retail sports betting under the new law and decree published in 2023.

“With this accreditation, we are reconfirming our commitment with the regulator and the industry by being ready to fulfill their compliance needs to achieve the important deadlines that this new regulation establishes for the industry to continue to operate and thrive. We can only expect Peru to become, once again, a regulatory model for the region and the world,” said GLI President & CEO James Maida.

“For the last 26 years, we have been privileged to witness the integrity and professionalism of the Peru regulatory entity through its leadership and professionals. It has been a regulatory model for many jurisdictions around Latin America, because of its indisputable reputation and their thorough regulatory process, and because of the dedication of their team,” he added.

The accreditation is the latest in a series of milestones for GLI in the region. The company has been working with regulators and lotteries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean for more than 26 years. Specific to Peru, GLI has been providing a range of services since 1998, when the company became the first laboratory accredited in the country and the first in Latin America. Peru was the first Latin American country to adopt technical standards and the certification process, establishing a formal laboratory-accreditation process.

Not long ago, the DGJCMT, with the cooperation of the Peru gaming industry, achieved the interconnection of more than 80,000 gaming machines.
