Now eCOGRA is making sure the Safe and Fair ranks are extended to Mobile and Poker. They are joined by more operators, to carry out this extension of coverage.

Mobile and poker venues join the “Safe and Fair” professional ranks

eCOGRA’s Compliance Team has been exceptionally busy this year, carrying out intensive probity and systems testing on new applicants for the “Safe and Fair” seal, and conducting extensive on-site annual reviews for operators due to renew their accreditations.

Among the new seal holders is Zero 36, a Spin3 powered mobile gambling operation owned by the Palace Group which has already built up a significant player base. Joining the mobile site as eCOGRA’s newest seal-holders are three poker rooms, Interwetten Poker, Aspinalls Poker and Poker Room LA.

The name Aspinalls is famous in both land and online gambling circles and the online poker room that bears this respected name is managed by Vegas Poker Lounge and powered by Microgaming. Malta-licensed and EGBA member Interwetten Poker is a member of the Ongame Network and has a long history in the betting industry, whilst Poker Room LA is part of the well established and successful Vegas Partner Lounge group.

eCOGRA CEO Andrew Beveridge congratulated the new seal holders and applauded their commitment to professionalism, good business practice and player protection in devoting the time and energy required to obtain seal status. “You join a remarkable roll of tier one operators in adhering to the highest standards of operational conduct and integrity, and we are proud to award the seal to your websites,” he said.

The Compliance Team has recently reviewed and renewed the “Safe and Fair” seals of 1 mobile, 10 poker and 55 casino operations including major groups like 888.com. A full list of the renewed seals is available at www.ecogra.org/approved.

Beveridge said that in general the Compliance Team had reported a high level of eGAP compliance at all reviewed operations. “It is pleasing to see that eCOGRA accredited operators are adhering to eGAPs that cover such a wide range of financial and operational practice, and that operators are ensuring that their reviews are carried out timeously,” he said.

You are assured any site you play on with the eCOGRA seal is a safe site to play on. They review and double check each and every site with their seal.
