IGT (International Game Technology), a gaming software supplier, has successfully completed the extensive procedure required to earn responsible gambling accreditation from the Global Gambling Guidance Group (G4) for its sports betting section.
IGT has now acquired responsible gambling accreditation on all of the business’s software services, including casino gaming, lottery, digital software solutions, and now sports betting. These are the types of software that the company provides to online casinos all around the world.
To summarize, the process of obtaining certification through G4 necessitates that the seeking company demonstrate that it is able to adhere with a rigorous code of practice. The aforementioned code of practice includes restrictions about policies on responsible gaming, player safety, advertising requirements, and personnel training.
IGT was given its first responsible gambling accreditation in 2017 by G4 for its gaming activities; this was followed by a second accreditation in 2019 for its digital solutions. Both of these accreditations were presented by G4. In addition, the World Lottery Association has given its stamp of approval to the lottery and iLottery activities that are run by the provider.
“G4 applauds IGT for making responsible gaming a top priority across all of its business verticals,” stated Pieter Remmers, Chairman of the Board of G4.
“We are grateful to have IGT as an accredited member of G4, and it is encouraging to see the company taking the lead in the gaming industry with its responsible gaming initiatives.”
