Within the IGSA standards, there is a set of identifiers that are designed to be globally unique. These identifies are called a Manufacturer ID or MID. The MID ensures that one manufacturer will not duplicate the identifiers used by another manufacturer. The remaining characters are assigned by the manufacturer in a manner that maintains uniqueness across the manufacturer’s product lines.

MIDs are referenced in a number of places in our standards. They identify the manufacturer of a product or appear as the prefix to a manufacturer-assigned identifier – for example, an EGM Id, pay table Id, theme Id, etc. The MIDs always require there to be three characters comprised of the characters A-Z and 0-9.

The IGSA MID registry is used to track the identifiers registered to IGSA members. The registry also indicates which manufacturer ID’s are no longer valid. To obtain and maintain IGSA Certification for its products, a company must be assigned a Manufacturer ID.

  1. Each IGSA Member may request and is entitled to one (1) MID.
  2. Each IGSA Member may request additional MIDs for an annual fee of $5,000 per MID.
  3. If a IGSA Member company acquires one or more IGSA Members, then:
    a) If the new Parent company wants to retain ownership of the acquired Members' MIDs in addition to its own, then it may do so for an annual fee of $5,000 per acquired company's MID.
    b) If the new Parent company does not want to retain ownership, then the acquired Members' MIDs will be marked as not in use and archived.
  4. If a IGSA Member company owning a MID goes out of business, its MID will be marked as not in use and archived.
  5. If a IGSA Member company leaves IGSA after using its MID and wishes to retain ownership of that MID, then it may do so for an annual fee of $5,000 per MID.
  6. A non-member cannot request a MID but may retain its MID.

Failure to pay the MID fee(s) will lead to the revocation of the MID(s) and an update to the MID registry as per this policy.
