Boss Media Achieves eCOGRA Online Wagering Software Fairness Certification

Friday, April 9th, 2010

Boss Media, which powers the OCS approved Casino Club, is the latest top-tier online casino software developer to receive an eCOGRA certification, following the likes of popular European betting site and software licensee, Bwin – approved in January of this year. Now making a total of eighteen eCOGRA approved software platforms offering mobile wagering, sports betting, poker games, bingo and online casino gambling, there is no denying the growing need and importance of eCOGRA in the European iGaming industry.

Better yet, eCOGRA’s role is more essential to the legally regulated online gambling sector, which is precisely why you won’t find any U.S. facing online casinos with an eCOGRA certification. If you ask me, I think eCOGRA is smart to keep away from the U.S. In other words, any country who willingly doesn’t play fair, opts to ban rather than regulate, and who attempts to give online betting a bad name simply does not deserve eCOGRA.

What eCOGRA does is provide the groundwork for achieving the highest standards in gaming operator responsibility, while ensuring safe, fair and overall transparent online gambling standards are met in all gaming operations – everything from software provider to online casino operator. As most people know by now, the software platform is where fairness begins, as this is contingent on the programmed source code and a properly functioning Random Number Generator (RNG).

As mentioned, Bwin is a licensee of the Boss Media platform, and takes part in the International Poker Network – one of the largest European facing online poker networks out there currently. This may explain why Boss Media’s certification with eCOGRA followed Bwin earlier in the year. It’s a perfect example of how when the bar gets raised, those who don’t follow will be left behind. And not that there aren’t any good non-eCOGRA approved betting sites out there (let’s face it…getting certified is no easy task), yet the fact remains that an increasing number of established gaming businesses are turning to eCOGRA. This especially became the case when eCOGRA opened its certifications to other software platforms other than Microgaming and online casinos powered by Microgaming.

As Boss Media’s CEO, Johan Berg eloquently stated, “The company (Boss Media) has always been committed to the highest possible quality in both products and operational conduct. Our achievement in meeting eCOGRA’s demanding software certification standards reaffirms that commitment and provides us with a useful and internationally accepted benchmark against which we can measure our performance.”

Casino Club Adds Two New Online Slots to Download Platform

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Casino Club, which is the sole Boss Media powered online casino reviewed and listed here at Online Casino Suite, has just just announced the launch of two new online slot machines now available on the downloadable casino software platform. Titled “Twin Win” and “Age of Vikings”, the two new games promise to provide an equal share of entertainment and potential winnings.

Twin Win is actually based on a traditional UK fruit machine, and should certainly prove popular with British players who call Casino Club home. Not to be confused with IGT’s 5-reel, 15-line, Caribbean themed brick ‘n mortar casino slot machine, Casino Club’s Twin Win online slot features Joker symbols, Lucky Dice, Triple 7’s, and of course, all kinds of fruit. A ten payline game, Twin Win, offers a jackpot award and a “gamble” feature called the “Double-up”. The best feature of the game, however, is a Criss-cross bonus round (hit three bonus symbols from left to right), which awards 10,15 or 20 game rounds with greater odds of winning in the regular game.

As for Age of Vikings, this is a bonus video slot with not one, but two bonuses. The first bonus round – the Gold Bonus Game – is engaged when three Moneybag symbols are hit on the reels from left to right (only the three leftmost reels will hit), while three or more Viking Shield symbols from left to right on any paid reel will engage a Wheel of Fortune style bonus game. Outside of the bonus games, Age of Vikings offers big winnings with a Scatter symbol (the Viking Axe) that pays from 2x to 400x winnings.

As mentioned, both new slots are only available for download. The good news is that they can be played for free with a fun money account at Casino Club, not to mention the fact that downloading the software platform is quick, easy and highly recommended for the most stable connections to the server. The Flash platform offers just under twenty slot machines for instant play, while the download platform offers over twice as much, including a more comprehensive selection of table games.
