First Gaming Vendor to Receive Responsible Gaming Certification for its Land-Based Casino and Lottery Segments

 

International Game Technology PLC is the first gaming supplier to achieve responsible gaming accreditation for its land-based casino and lottery segments from the Global Gambling Guidance Group (G4). G4 aims to minimize the impact of problem gambling by promoting a worldwide accreditation program for operators and suppliers in the gaming industry. This certification reinforces IGT’s commitment to being a responsible vendor, and demonstrates the effectiveness of the responsible gaming technology solutions it provides to gaming operators worldwide.

“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,” said Pieter Remmers, a member of the G4 Board of Directors. “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.”  

“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,” said Renato Ascoli, IGT CEO, North America Gaming and Interactive. “IGT prides itself as an industry pioneer, and the G4 certification allows us to transparently demonstrate our leadership in this important topic.”

To obtain certification, G4 independently assessed IGT and confirmed that it complies with G4 requirements of providing responsible gaming tools on gaming machines and systems in the form of:

  • Reality checks on the game screen
    • Time clocks
    • Wager amounts
    • Pop-up reminders for the amounts of time and money spent
  • Session limits
  • Responsible gaming information screens
    • Budget-setting suggestions
    • Self-assessment test
    • Treatment referrals
