|Independent online gambling standards organisation eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) has been approved as a credited testing facility by the Isle of Man’s Gambling Supervision Commission.|
The London-based player protection body stated that accreditation followed extensive presentations to the Commission earlier this year by Andrew Beveridge, Chief Executive for eCOGRA, alongside the organisation's independent directors and audit team that delivered credentials and explained its testing methodology.
“We are delighted that a regulator of the calibre of the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission has accepted our credentials, audit experience and professional qualifications after intensive study,” said Beveridge.
“Our testing principles and methodologies have now been recognised by several international jurisdictions concerned with protecting players through the professional and continuous testing of online casino and poker room operators.
'Over 130 tier-one online casinos and poker rooms currently use our test and audit services and we number 25 leading operator companies and 16 quality software providers among our clientele. In addition, we have the added scrutiny of the leading audit firm KPMG through its annual quality assurance reviews, thus providing an unrivalled verification programme.“
eCOGRA stated that its Total Gaming Transaction Review, which uses continuous monitoring and data analyses to assess accurate payout percentages and certify random number generation fairness, has previously been extensively evaluated and accredited by other leading jurisdictional authorities.
