IGT has secured accreditation from the Global Guidance Group (G4) for responsible gaming across its Global Gaming and PlayDigital business segments. 

Following an independent assessment, G4 confirmed that IGT “goes above the industry standards of providing player protection tools and responsible gaming information”. 

Assessors examined IGT’s approach on several KPIs, including the responsible gaming code of conduct, corporate standards, operational code of practice, training, player protection tools, staff and player protection frameworks. 

“IGT has showcased its responsible gaming commitment and industry leadership year after year, and G4 is pleased to recognize the company’s Global Gaming and PlayDigital operations with accreditation again,” said Pieter Remmers, Chairman of the G4 Board of Directors. “We applaud IGT’s critical responsible gaming efforts and appreciate all that the Company does to maintain the integrity of gaming globally.”

This is the fourth time that IGT has been accredited by G4 after its sports betting unit in 2022, digital solutions in 2019 and gaming operations in 2017. 

The global gaming and lottery technology giant has placed RG at the center of its strategy in recent years as it aims to be a sustainable business. The firm confirmed a responsible gaming policy for all global units in 2021 in which it would “balance growth alongside social responsibility with an emphasis on the digital revolution and cashless innovation”.

“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,” said Wendy Montgomery, IGT SVP, Marketing, Communications and Sustainability. 

“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.”
