Growing Interest for Online Gambling Code of Conduct

eCOGRA (eCommerce Online Gaming Regulation Assurance) and gaming charity, GamCare, are making tremendous progress in their mission to develop and promulgate an International Responsible Gambling Code of Conduct for regulating online casinos and internet betting sites. After first being introduced at the European Interactive Gaming Expo late last year, the legislation is being heavily endorsed by two more of the online gambling industry's powerhouse collectives - the Interactive Gaming Council and European Gaming and Betting Association.

A joint press release was recently issued by eCOGRA and GamCare, detailing the provisions of the draft, as well as reinforcing the need for universal regulation in an increasingly expanding global online gaming industry. This is great news for the online gambler, since the main interest of such a governing code is to protect players and promote responsible gambling practices by online casino operators.

Andrew Poole, who is the Managing Director of GamCare, said his hopes are that an international code will give help the general online gambling community make more educated decisions in regards to choosing their online gambling host, as well as a greater sense of confidence knowing licensed operators are acting in the interests of players and implementing responsible, safe and fair practices. This is precisely what both eCOGRA and GamCare have each done on their own - and quite successfully, I might add.

With valuable experience gauging and implementing online technologies and operator compliance under their belts, eCOGRA, GamCare, the Remote Gaming Association and others all agree it is nigh time to begin promoting a regulatory code with international reach. The idea is currently being discussed with leading European regulatory jurisdictions, such as the UK, Malta, Isle of Man and Gibraltar, and we'll soon enough know more about the development of the highly favored International Responsible Gambling Code of Conduct.
