“As a founding member of IGSA, Light & Wonder has always been committed to the creation of open industry standards,” said IGSA President, Peter DeRaedt as he reflected on their long and steady membership. “Early in their history, they donated the core GAT (Game Authentication Terminal) technology that has become IGSA’s most widely adopted regulatory standard. They were also the first to adopt G2S (Game to System) and have become its largest implementor. As an organization, we are grateful for their continuing and unwavering support.”

“I’d like to congratulate IGSA on their 25 Year Anniversary,” said Rich Schneider, Chief Product Officer at Light & Wonder. “IGSA has done amazing work in the area of technical standards for our industry over the last 25 years.
