GLI-20 Gaming Standards for Kiosks V2.0 Technical Standard Release

Gaming Standards for Kiosks

May 14, 2019 – Gaming Laboratories International, LLC (GLI), is pleased to announce the release of the final published version of the “GLI-20 Standards for Kiosks V2.0” for use by the gaming industry.
During the past several months, GLI worked closely with various industry stakeholders including suppliers and regulators to ensure GLI-20 V2.0 represents the most highly-developed set of technical requirements and practices available in the gaming industry.
GLI-20 V2.0 reflects a revision to the core kiosk standard to incorporate technical requirements reflecting the latest trends in kiosk technology, to better align with overlapping requirements in the GLI Family of Technical Standards and other industry standards, and to maintain best-in-industry practices. In general, the changes are largely designed to improve the clarity and consistency of requirements.
A PDF copy of the final published version of GLI-20 V2.0 is linked below for your reference and is also accessible by visiting the GLI website at www.gaminglabs.comand clicking on the ‘GLI Standards’ tab.
Additionally, an Executive Summary of the changes against the prior GLI-20 V1.5 is linked below for reference.
Translated versions of the GLI-20 v2.0 standard will be made available in the near future. These translated documents will be posted to the GLI public internet site for global consumption.
Each standard in the GLI Standard Series is a culmination of industry best-practices and is continually updated based on industry feedback. The GLI Standards are true “industry standards” in that they are created using a collaborative approach which involves thousands of gaming industry stakeholders. These standards are intended to assist regulators by creating baseline technical guidelines which they can adopt and/or utilize in the manner they see fit. In addition to assisting regulators, the standards are of tremendous value to suppliers who use the standards as a guide in their design and development process, saving both time and expense. GLI-20 and the rest of the GLI Standards Series are available for free download on the ‘GLI Standards’ tab found at www.gaminglabs.com.
Kind Regards,
The GLI Team
