Funding for the ICRG is provided through a variety of sources. Commercial and tribal gaming companies, equipment manufacturers, vendors, ICRG board members, gaming employees and individuals all have generously contributed to the ICRG. Boyd Gaming Corporation and Station Casinos provided the start-up funds for the NCRG (now the ICRG) in 1996. Other leading gaming companies, including Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc., International Game Technology, Mandalay Resort Group, MGM MIRAGE and Park Place Entertainment Corporation, were early and generous supporters.

Today, with the assistance of so many generous companies, organizations and individuals, nearly $40 million has been committed to the ICRG, an unprecedented level of funding for gambling research from the private sector.
