"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," said Wendy Montgomery , IGT SVP, Marketing, Communications and Sustainability. "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."

"IGT is one of the most influential responsible gaming leaders in the gaming industry," said Mélissa Azam, WLA Senior Corporate Social Responsibility Manager.

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."

A WLA-approved assessor, EY, conducted the assessment of IGT's lottery operations to determine its WLA recertification. EY provided an independent auditor's report on IGT's alignment with the eight sections of the WLA standards, including research, employee programs, product and service development, remote gaming environment, advertising and marketing communications, client awareness, stakeholder engagement and reporting.

IGT continues to reinforce its commitment to responsible gaming by adhering to eight globally adopted Responsible Gaming Guidelines; working collaboratively with its Responsible Gaming Advisory Group; launching tailored employee e-learning courses on responsible gaming and problem gambling; publicly releasing its corporate wide responsible gaming policy; and continually updating and following its global advertising and marketing communications Code of Principles.
