More Top Casinos Join Player Protection Group
The number of quality online casinos committed to
player-sensitive, international and monitored regulation this week rose
to 53 with the announcement by eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation
and Assurance (eCOGRA) that two new Seals have been awarded, together
with additional foreign language and currency Seals.
The latest casinos to pass the detailed third party acceptance
inspection are: Maple Casino (www.maplecasino.com) Thunderluck Casino (www.thunderluck.com)
Both of the new Seals are Microgaming-powered casinos belonging to two
major and well established business groups.
22 other online casinos have successfully achieved
the required service and probity levels to offer eCOGRA-regulated
foreign language and multi-currency facilities.
The eCOGRA initiative is open to all and provides
practical player protection through a carefully researched set of
regulations, termed the eGAPs, which are applied through independent
international business services organisations to member casinos and
Detailed inspection and ongoing monitoring to ensure
continuous compliance with the regulations are key to the success of the
initiative, and extensive probity checks are carried out as part of the
acceptance process. Casinos that successfully pass the inspection are
identified by the eCOGRA "Play It Safe" Seal, awarded by the three
independent directors on the eCOGRA Board who effectively control the
organisation’s operational activities.
