Two More Casinos Gain the eCOGRA Seal

16 February 2011 by admin

It is one of the most sought after seals in the online casino industry: the eCOGRA ‘fair and safe’ seal. Out of the numerous online casinos out there in the world, only one hundred and forty five (145) have been approved by eCOGRA to display their seal. And now two more online casinos join the ranks.

The two newest online casinos to have been given the eCOGRA ‘fair and safe’ designation: Red Flush and Casino La Vida. Both are Microgaming powered online casinos. And Microgaming itself is an eCOGRA approved software developer, which I am sure helped give Red Flush and Casino La Vida a boost—after all the online casino games are already established as fair since they were created by an eCOGRA approved software developer.

As for who eCOGRA is, they were formed back in 2003 by a group of online casinos. It is worth noting that the online casino groups that formed eCOGRA were competitors of each other. But what they wanted more than to be more successful than each other was something that would improve the standards under which online casinos operated and improve the protection that players have at the online casinos they play at. They came together to put together an organization that would hold operation and protection standards as well as monitor potential candidates for the seal and those that already have the seal. This means that contenders for and holders of the seal are audited and inspected for responsible gaming practices, fair payouts that are given in a timely manner, high-grade customer support, fair gaming standards in their games and tournaments, and dispute resolution that is not biased towards the online casino itself. That is where eCOGRA came from.

Now, online casino patrons should know that while eCOGRA was formed by a group of online casino groups, it is not run by any of the founding groups, nor does eCOGRA actually answer to those online casino groups or receive money from them. Once eCOGRA was formed they were turned loose to run on their own, which further reinforces an unbiased and independent online gaming standards auditor. For that reason, an eCOGRA seal of ‘fair and safe’ gaming is the most sort after seal in the online gaming industry. It is also why players are advised to look for the seal when they are choosing an online casino to play at. They know with a seal that an online casino is safe to play it, and to be wary of online casinos that do not have the eCOGRA seal as they may not be safe online casinos to play at.

So keep a look out for the eCOGRA ‘fair and safe’ seal on an online casino’s site when looking for a place to play. And congratulations to Red Flush and Casino La Vida.
