International Game Technology (IGT) has become the first gaming supplier to receive G4 accreditation for both its digital and gaming divisions after it confirmed that it has received a responsible gaming accreditation for its IGT PlayDigital™ operations.

The new accreditation complements the supplier’s G4 responsible gaming certification in 2017 for its land-based casino segment which was received in 2017.

“IGT’s gaming solutions are utilized by gaming operators throughout the world, making it our responsibility to ensure that we develop and deliver universal technologies and services to assist our customers with protecting their players,” said Wendy Montgomery, IGT Senior Vice President, Global Brand, Marketing, and Communications.

“We prioritize innovation and are pleased that our gaming solutions continue to be recognized for responsible gaming excellence. Extending IGT’s accolades with G4 to include IGT PlayDigital reinforces our company-wide leadership and commitment to this important topic.”

The certification will reinforce IGT’s position as a responsible vendor in the gaming sector, demonstrating the effectiveness of responsible gaming technology in the sector both in the US and worldwide.

In order to maintain accreditation, IGT underwent an independent evaluation which sought to guarantee that the group exceeded industry standards on player protection measures. As part of G4’s evaluation, IGT had to demonstrate its responsible gaming commitment to research, policy development, and employee training.

“I am happy and proud to certify IGT’s PlayDigital operations for the first time under the G4 umbrella,” said Pieter Remmers, a member of the G4 Board of Directors.

“IGT shows us, once again, real commitment to responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility by having clear responsible gaming policies and guidelines, and by implementing the latest responsible gaming features within its products. We look forward to a longstanding relationship between IGT and G4 and appreciate all that they do to maintain the integrity of gaming globally.”
