In receiving the accreditation, it now means IGT has received responsible gambling certification across all four verticals in which the supplier operates, including lottery, gaming, digital and now sports betting.
To become accredited, a gambling organisation must first prove to G4 that it meets a stringent set of requirements.
This code of practice covers policies supporting a responsible gambling framework, the ability to protect player information, a set of advertising principles for responsible gambling, employee training and player protection tools such as money limits and age verification.
G4 Chairman of the Board Pieter Remmers commented: “G4 applauds IGT for making responsible gaming a top priority across all of its business verticals. G4 appreciates having IGT as an accredited member and it’s good to see the company leading the gaming industry with its responsible gaming initiatives.”
IGT first received responsible gambling accreditation from G4 in 2017, for its gaming operations, and again in 2019, for its digital solutions.
The supplier also received certification from the World Lottery Association for its lottery and iLottery businesses.
IGT President of Sports Betting Joe Asher said: “IGT's proactive approach to responsible gaming and achieving prestigious G4 certifications sets the pace for the entire industry to go above and beyond what state regulation mandates when it comes to player protection.
“As sports betting continues its expansion across the US, IGT is actively demonstrating it is now more important than ever to exercise strong responsible gaming support. We are honoured to be the first industry supplier to achieve sports betting responsible gaming accreditation and we look forward to working with our customers to implement our best-in-class solutions for the players.”
