International Game Technology (IGT) has been recertified by the Internet Responsible Gambling Compliance Assessment Program (iCAP). Additionally, the company was commended for its commitment to responsible gaming and player protection, as well as its wide range of employee training courses.

"Responsible gaming is at the core of every IGT decision," said Giuseppe Portoricco, Vice President of Player Account Platforms and iLottery at IGT. "Whether it is an interactive game or a new technology solution, we are guided by this principle. Our goal is to always promote responsible play while creating a fun player experience. iCAP is helping IGT achieve this objective."

The iCAP certification requires an independent assessment by Gambling Integrity (GI), a U.K.-based organization whose mission is to ensure the highest quality and effectiveness of player protection systems offered by operators and vendors.

"The commitment and impressive efforts of IGT shine through at every level," said Malcolm Bruce, Assessor of GI. "From its Company policies, to its operational practice, IGT continuously improves upon the player protection standards within its software. Our recommendation is that IGT aims to position itself as a thought leader in the responsible gambling community, as a role model for other vendors, and as a reliable mentor for its gambling operator customers."
