    Our Capabilities

    Our sophisticated technology solutions are tailored to each customer’s needs. Examples of our responsible gaming offerings include:

    LOTTERY

    • We weave responsible gaming into the fabric of our complete Lottery Ecosystem. Across all lottery channels, IGT’s games, products, services, people, and policies promote responsible growth for our customers and responsible entertainment for players.
    • Features for responsible gaming ensure operational oversight over all system components, including transaction processing, reporting, security, retailer management, and age-verification technology.

    GAMING

    • For Casino Games specifically, IGT provides the means for the operator to display RG information; however, the content remains at their discretion, often with advice provided from IGT. Overall, both VLT and casino screens typically include information about the signs of a gambling problem, RG guidelines, and where to go for help if someone is experiencing a gambling problem.
    • IGT provides a new RG application that is currently only available through the CMS Casinolink and Advantage Casino Management System. This tool differs from the RG monitor in that it can be used either as a back office tool or with direct interaction with the players where they can set their own limits (time, wagers, loss, visits), see their gaming history and get notification about reaching their limits, and eventually receive gaming restrictions (exclusion for a period of time). This solution will continue to evolve in 2020.
    • VLT tools include on-machine features and system-supported functionalities to help players make informed choices, enhancing player education and self-awareness. They include tracking player gaming activity and detecting situations where players are reaching limits that they or the operator have pre-set.

    DIGITAL

    • Our platforms offer a wide range of player-protection tools, such as self-exclusion features; wager displays; integration with age and ID verification systems; spending, loss, and deposit limits; session clocks on the game screen; and data protection controls.
    • Operators can implement these features and functionalities to be compliant with their market rules and regulations, and to educate their players on responsible gaming practices.
    • The PlayShot™ sports betting platform offers operators features such as match-fixing detection, excessive gambling identification and management, anti-money laundering processes, and detection of suspicious betting patterns. The PlayShot mobile component offers player protections such as player registration, multiple verification points, user optional daily, weekly and monthly betting limits and ties into live support hotlines.
