eCOGRA has extended its independent testing standards and monitoring services to include internet bingo, sportsbetting and live gambling operations, in addition to online casino and poker sites. The expansion means that eCOGRA now covers all major sectors in the online gambling industry with its ‘Safe and Fair’ certification seal.
Operators in these new sectors will now have the opportunity to put themselves forward for assessment and testing in the hope of achieving the eCOGRA’s ‘Safe and Fair’ seal, currently held by some 126 tier one online casinos and poker rooms.
Once a company has been accredited with the seal it is subject to continuous monitoring and annual reviews and must comply with eCOGRA requirements regarding the quick and efficient handling of player complaints through the organisations Fair Gaming Advocate.
This extension of inspection, advisory and monitoring services means eCOGRA now covers all the main products currently being offered by online gambling operators.
