Approved: WLA verifies IGT's responsible gaming standards

The World Lottery Association (WLA) has verified the lottery and iLottery operations of International Game Technology (IGT), for its Corporate Social Responsibility Standards and Responsible Game Framework for Suppliers.Created by the WLA, the responsible gaming standards aim to minimize the impact of problem gambling. To do so, they promote a global accreditation program for gaming industry operators and suppliers alike. To determine its WLA recertification, a WLA-approved assessor, EY, conducted IGT’s assessment of its lottery operations. An independent auditor’s report on IGT’s position within the eight sections of the WLA standards included employee programs, product and service management, research, advertising and marketing communications, remote gaming environment, stakeholder engagement, and reporting. Wendy Montgomery, IGT SVP, Marketing, Communications and Sustainability, said: "Responsible gaming is engrained into the fabric of what we do at IGT, from our products to our people and programs, it remains at the forefront of all decisions.

"This recertification from WLA reinforces our leadership and commitment as a responsible vendor, as well as demonstrates the effectiveness of our responsible gaming technologies that we provide to our lottery customers worldwide."

Mélissa Azam, WLA Senior Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, added: "IGT is one of the most influential responsible gaming leaders in the gaming industry. Its decades-long responsible gaming commitment spans the company's products and solutions and is a key component of its corporate culture.

“The WLA fully supports this recertification for IGT's lottery operations and congratulates IGT on its continuing dedication to responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility."

To reinforce its commitment to responsible and safer gambling, IGT continues to adhere to eight worldwide adopted guidelines, stating that the companies must work collaboratively with its responsible Gaming Advisory Group, publicly release its corporate-wide responsible gaming policy, launch responsible gambling e-learning courses for employees, and continually follow the Code of Principles.
