eCOGRA's Tex Rees to Attend Asian Gambling Briefing

As reported in an iGaming press release, Tex Rees - COGRA's Fair Gaming Advocate - will be in attendance at the Asian Gambling Briefing in Singapore (October 21, 2008). Along with Melco Crown Gaming's Senior Legal Counsel and the head of Macau University's Sociology Department, Rees will be sitting on an expert panel with the aim of discussing Responsible Gambling practices at large. Moderating the the panel will be Pano Makridis, who is Galaxy Entertainment Group's Manager of Responsible Gaming & Compliance.

The goal of the panel will be to raise the level of awareness of customer service relations and responsible gambling programs in Asia. Specifically, the panel will examine the aspects of social responsibility and its relationship to gambling policies. Taking a close look at government participation in this regard, as well as best practices in other jurisdictions, the panel aims to gauge levels of casino operator accountability.

Considering the massive size of the fast-growing Asian gambling sector - largely due to Macau - such talks could not be more relevant and timely. And with such an esteemed panel speaking out on the issues, resolutions resulting from the panel discussion should certainly get due consideration from regional gambling regulatory bodies and government agency's.

What makes eCOGRA's Tex Rees' appointment to the panel most helpful is that Rees represents the online gambling sector, which as we all know, has been a hot topic in the gambling regulatory landscape. The fact that online casinos can be effectively regulated is proven by the successes of eCOGRA. Not only does eCOGRA raise the bar on casino operator responsibility, if there is ever a dispute between a player and an eCOGRA certified operator, Tex Rees steps in the middle to mediate on behalf of the player - And she has effectively done so hundreds of times.

Much like Ms. Rees did to help create the International Responsible Gambling Code, which has been adopted by respected trade organizations like the Remote Gaming Association and the Interactive Gaming Council, there is a positive expectation that the Asian casino gambling industry will also get on board with international standards in a more official manner.
