Since the beginning, GLI has been fulfilling its mission to help regulators, suppliers and operators with “obsession-level” customer service and has tested and certified more than 3 million items in more than 475 jurisdictions.

President/CEO James Maida said, “We’re obsessed with customer service and go out of our way for every regulator, every supplier, and every operator. We walk through walls to get them what they need. That is something Paul Magno and I have been passionate about since we founded the company in 1989, and it’s something we are equally passionate about to this day.”

Maida recently received the EY Entrepreneur of The Year® 2019 New Jersey Award.

With a sharp focus on customer service, the company has experienced strong growth. GLI began with two employees, one location, and three customers. Today, the company has 1,250 employees, 24 locations, and hundreds of customers spanning the gaming industry.

GLI also has a 30-year history of giving back. The most recent example was a canned food sculpture competition, where employees created sculptures in several of the company’s labs and lobbies, then delivered food and cash donations to various food banks in GLI host communities. Beneficiaries included:

  • Chubby Chums Children’s Home in Primrose, S. Africa
  • Community Table Arvada Food Bank in Arvada, Colo.
  • Fulfill Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, N.J.
  • The Haarlem, Netherlands Foodbank
  • Three Square Food Bank of Las Vegas, Nev.

Separately, GLI gave a $30,000 pledge to Preferred Behavioral Health Group in Lakewood, N.J.

GLI Senior Vice President and co-founder Paul Magno said, “When we started GLI, cassette tapes and the Sony Walkman were the latest technologies. Since then, innovators have leaped forward in the general entertainment industry and the gaming industry. While none of us knows where technology will take us, at GLI, we do know that whatever happens next in the gaming industry’s future is up to our creative-minded customers, and we will be there to help them, just like we have for the last 30 years.”

DAW Sets Out Wish List for Re-regulation of German Gambling Market

DAW Sets Out Wish List for Re-regulation of German Gambling Market

The Deutsche Automatenwirtschaft (DAW), the umbrella organisation for Germany’s gaming machine associations, has created a wish list for the re-regulation of the country’s gambling market.

DAW explained that the current regulations for commercial gambling undermine the objectives of the State Treaty on Gambling, in particular when it comes to channeling players towards the legal market.

It said establishments should be permitted to offer multiple game verticals, and that updated regulations should maintain the state lottery monopoly on draw-based games.

New regulations must ensure that legal providers can offer a competitive and economically viable alternative to unlicensed operators, the DAW said.

“The amendment of the State Treaty on Gambling is a great opportunity to counteract the undesirable developments – above all the rapid growth of the black market – with a holistic approach. Only a coherent regulation of all forms of gaming, including the use of commercial slot machines based solely on quality standards, and a strengthening of legal providers can curb the black market and effectively protect consumers,” Georg Stecker, chief executive of DAW said.

DAW calls on state lawmakers to introduce uniform standards for responsible gaming training and player protection measures across all sectors. These controls, it says, must be constantly developed and regularly evaluated by professionals to ensure they are fit for purpose.

A nationwide biometric system that would ensure voluntary restrictions on players’ gambling should also be rolled out. It also believes a certification system for all gaming halls and outlets offering slot machines should be implemented, to help consumers distinguish legal from illegal offerings. In addition, the association argues in favour of a qualification system for gaming machine professionals.

Finally, the DAW argues in favour of regulations governing the exterior design of gaming establishments. It says these should ensure there are no inducements to gamble for minors and vulnerable people, while allowing the operator to inform and educate players about the range of games on offer.

International software provider Fugaso has been selected for the final in two acclaimed AskGamblers Award categories, Best Slots and Best Software Provider, in what AskGamblers bill as the world’s most prestigious casino awards. The popular global games supplier has developed innovative in-house technology that is driving growth for the company, hence also the nomination as a finalist in the Best Software Provider category.

Fugaso has been making waves in the global iGaming industry as a content provider of choice for a range of tier 1 operators, as well as winning the hearts and minds of players around the world’s igaming jurisdictions, whose votes have been central to these accolades. Fugaso offers an extensive game library of over 65 HTML5 games that guarantee seamless gameplay on all devices and compete with finalists in the AskGamblers Awards including NetEnt, Play’n Go and Microgaming. Fugaso’s Jackpots Series, a popular progressive, has also attracted substantial interest with jackpots regularly topping 6 figure wins.

The rapidly expanding Fugaso portfolio of titles is available via the GrooveGaming platform as well as from SoftGaming, Soft Swiss, Digitain, EveryMatrix, Bet Construct , IGG and many others. Releases this year include Trump It Deluxe, Wild Rodeo, Magic Spinners, Fugaso Airlines, Stoned Joker, Imhotep Manuscript and blockbuster Cleopatra’s Diary, which is in the running for Best Slots at the AskGamblers Awards. All Fugaso games are available in 12 languages, but can be adapted for any language, and every game is supported by all devices, currencies and cryptocurrencies.

The big breakthrough for Fugaso has been the quality of gaming experience the company now offers across all devices. New technology truly takes things to the next level, providing players with a quality of entertainment that matches the standards that they have come to expect in other environments. One of the key technologies deployed in Fugaso games is the highly innovative ‘Rich Free Spins’ feature, which combines the benefits of multiple free spins into one super-valuable free spin that ramps up the excitement with the prospect of potentially highly generous payouts. No other games manufacturer is currently offering ‘Rich Free Spins’, a unique and proprietary differentiator in Fugaso’s technology vault.

As the most reliable source for online casinos, AskGamblers is hosting prestigious casino awards for players to choose the best casino and slot in the industry. AskGamblers is one of the most valued gaming review sites built on the collaboration of real people who submit their opinions on games, casinos, online promotions and everything associated with the industry.
