IGT has been awarded responsible gaming accreditation for its Global Gaming and PlayDigital operations by the Global Gambling Guidance Group.

Through its accreditation programme, G4 aims to reduce the impact of problem gambling. IGT was independently assessed to examine if the company’s player protection tools and responsible gaming information were above industry standards.

Wendy Montgomery, IGT SVP, Marketing, Communications and Sustainability, commented: “Responsible gaming is embedded into the core of IGT’s business and receiving this G4 accreditation for our Global Gaming and PlayDigital product offerings demonstrates our ongoing commitment to our Sustainable Play initiatives.

“IGT was the first industry supplier to earn G4 accreditation for gaming and digital responsible gaming excellence, and the first in the US to be accredited for sports betting. IGT will continue upholding itself and our partners to the highest responsible gaming standards as we promote positive play for all.”

G4’s audit assessed IGT in terms of responsible gambling code of conduct, corporate standards, operational code of practice, training, player protection tools, staff and responsible gambling, staff and problem gambling and player protection framework.

The company first received accreditation from the responsible gaming certification body for its gaming operations in 2017, its digital solutions in 2019 and its sports betting business in 2022.

Pieter Remmers, Chairman of the G4 Board of Directors, added: “IGT has showcased its responsible gaming commitment and industry leadership year after year, and G4 is pleased to recognise the company’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital operations with accreditation again.

“We applaud IGT’s critical responsible gaming efforts and appreciate all that the company does to maintain the integrity of gaming globally.”
