Founded in 1993, the UNLV International Gaming Institute (IGI) provides world-class education and cutting edge insights to global gaming leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

IGI is at the forefront of research, knowledge, and innovation in gaming.

Within the Institute, the Center for Gaming Innovation seeks to create innovative and commercially viable games — generating more than 20 patents in its first 18 months.

The International Center for Gaming Regulation is a partnership between IGI and UNLV’s Boyd School of Law that invents the scientific study of gaming regulation and will become the international research and teaching point of convergence for globally-recognized best practices.
