Unhappy with Lack of Regulations

eCOGRA, the industry's leading independent standards authority, responds to the recent developments regarding the ban set by the US government.

The non-profit "Seal of Approval" distributor sees the recent legislation as a possible danger, threatening players that may decide to gamble at underfunded, unregulated and unprincipled gambling sites filling the space left by the bigger, high profile online casinos.

The standards authority addresses this issue and calls for site operators who have not jumped on the eCOGRA wagon to accept its standards and understand the importance of consistent and monitored standards for professional operations, all to ensure that online casino players receive a fair gaming experience and good customer service.

They have been awarding "Play it Safe" seals to sites who have acted responsibly and urge them to continue to do so in the current circumstances. Until the present time, 21 well established and quality poker rooms and 91 casino sites operated by some of the largest and most successful business groups in the industry bear the eCOGRA "Play It Safe" seal, which assures players of fair games and efficient treatment. As a non-profit organization, eCOGRA is seemingly objective when it, too, calls for the regulation of online gambling, and sees it as a far more effective and safe method of action than the attempt to prohibit it altogether.
