IGT Receives Responsible Gaming Certification for Its Global Gaming Operations
IGT is the very first gaming provider or supplier to achieve the Responsible Gaming Accreditation. The Global Gambling Guidance Group (G4) awarded International Game Technology with the accreditation for its lottery and land-based casino sectors.
Certification for the accreditation is achieved by independent assessment from G4. Assessments depend on if responsible gaming tools are being implemented on individual gaming machines as well as systems. Some of the tools include session limits, wager amounts and time clocks.
Pieter Remmers, G4 Board Member said,
“IGT has successfully proven its commitment to responsible gaming by integrating effective features in its products that assist operators with minimizing harm and preventing problem gambling. We commend IGT for its leadership, and congratulate the company for being the first vendor to receive G4 accreditation for its land-based casino and lottery segments.”
Renato Ascoli, Chief Executive, North America gaming and Interactive at IGT also commented saying,
“IGT partners with gaming operators around the world to provide innovative technology and services, and it’s our responsibility to create solutions that help our customers protect their players. IGT prides itself as an industry pioneer, and the G4 certification allows us to transparently demonstrate our leadership in this important topic.”
