Staff Writer Industry News, IGT 3,183

New York-listed online casino provider International Game Technology (IGT) continues its streak in regard with global lottery. In June this year, the company united forces with Finnish Veikkaus brand with the aim of migrating onto the respective market. This month we are seeing the London-based firm joining the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) as an associate member.

Wide Access

With this collaboration, IGT is granted access to GLMS alerts and sports integrity education and prevention tools. In addition, the GLMS information network is now made accessible by IGT. Moreover, the game and solutions developer will embrace the GLMS Code of Conduct on Sports Betting. It will thus become the third lottery provider to merge into the GLMS associate membership programme. The two preceding companies were Scientific Games and Intralot.

Ludovico Calvi, GLMS president, stated that he had always considered IGT one of the leading gaming providers, “in particular when it comes to corporate social responsibility”. IGT has always focused on practising responsible gaming, which is the chief reason why GLMS is so thrilled to welcome it.

“Keeping Gaming Fun for All”

Calvi added that, “IGT has once again proved their commitment to supporting the sector, the community, and players.” With the objective of protecting their core values “and acting as a shield against global sport corruption”, the newly established team is bound to achieve big things.

Wendy Montgomery, IGT senior vice president of global brand, marketing and communications, declared that the objective had always been to “deliver socially responsible, best-in-class solutions, while respecting both people and society”.

Commenting on GLMS work ethics, Montgomery added, “The work GLMS does with monitoring betting patterns, as well as providing responsible gaming education to establish a culture of integrity is outstanding, and embracing such a global lottery effort is aligned with IGT’s culture and values.”
