Examiners at AFL have been testing instant-winner scratch tickets since 1981. Beginning with the fairly low-tech, foil laminate tickets produced  years ago through today’s thin-coating, biodegradable stock, examiners at AFL have tested and evaluated the durability and security of tickets representing nearly every technological advance in the lottery industry. As the tickets themselves have changed over the years, Affiliated Forensic Laboratory has revised its testing protocols and methodologies to keep abreast with technological changes in the industry.

AFL tests instant scratch tickets for both the domestic and foreign markets. Past and present clients include numerous state lottery agencies as well as ticket manufacturers.  These clients include the state lotteries of Minnesota, Washington, Kentucky, Texas, and Connecticut and manufacturers Scientific Games, GTECH, and Pollard.
