eCommerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) is celebrating its fifth anniversary as the leading non-profit player protection group and regulatory fairness certifier. Now monitoring some 125+ online betting sites, eCOGRA announced the news of their anniversary just as one of Europe's top online casino, poker and sports betting destinations - Interwetten - acquired the highly regarded eCOGRA Safe and Fair Seal of Approval.
Also on the eve of eCOGRA's anniversary was the certification of two more online bingo destinations - Jackpot Factory's All Bingo Club and Platinum Play Bingo (from the respected Fortune Lounge group of online casinos). eCOGRA is now awarding its Safe and Fair Seal to all manner of internet betting destinations, with the aforementioned trio being the first of their kind since eCOGRA announced it will be expanding its poker room and online casino certifications to include bingo and sports betting sites.
Interwetten's CEO, Thomas Daubek, pointed out that receiving the eCOGRA seal was a "proud accomplishment" that involved a comprehensive inspection of operations from head to toe. Everything from software technical opeartions to responsible gaming procedures and customer service protocols are examined and held to the highest standards. This is precisely why an eCOGRA "Safe and Fair" seal carries so much weight and helps instill trust in players.
Knowing this all too well is Jackpot Factory's VP, David Brickman, who added that all of Jackpot Factory's betting destinations, including their flagship online casinos - All Slots and All Jackpots - have been awarded the eCOGRA seal of approval. "It's good to know our bingo operations also measure up to eCOGRA's high operational standards", said Brickman.
eCOGRA's Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Beveridge commented that the last five years have been quite busy and productive for the group. Beveridge pledged that eCOGRA's standards will continue to remain current with the latest online gambling technologies and business practices, focused on player protection and developing universal online gambling regulation standards for the worldwide industry.
