Savvy online gamblers know who they can trust thanks to eCOGRA's revamped site.
Online gamblers worldwide can now rest easier at night! That's because eCOGRA (the e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance) is ensuring that more online casino operators, software developers and gaming sites than ever before are living up to the highest standards in service and integrity.
Bigger Website, Even Better Service
eCOGRA was established in 2003 as an independent guardian of players' rights and industry standards, and is now regarded as the chief operator of its kind in the business. Furthermore, it has just launched a fresh new image for its online presence, to reflect the organization's broadening range of services.
The new-look and easier to navigate site now provides even more facilities for players and gambling industry professionals, including:
Easily accessible information about eCOGRA-approved casinos.A place for players to lodge complaints (if necessary) about casinos bearing the eCOGRA "Safe and Fair" seal of approval.Commercial services for software developers and casino operators: basically, anyone in the business who can meet eCOGRA's standards is welcome to apply for accreditation.
eCOGRA CEO Andrew Beveridge was keen to stress his non-profit organization's dedication to player safety and enjoyment: "Player protection remains our most important goal, especially when assisting the community to confirm which sites are approved eCOGRA Safe and Fair Sealholders."
Simply the Best
eCOGRA conducts its universally trusted vetting process with the help of 12 chartered accountants, as well as a team of IT experts and auditors, plus the four independent directors who oversee the daily running of the organization.
As things stand today, this team has awarded the eCOGRA Certified Software Seal to 13 gaming software providers, and has found 145 online casinos worthy of its endorsement. Any online casino that receives this honor wants to shout about it from the roof tops, and is sure to display the eCOGRA seal on its homepage.
