|eCOGRA (eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance) has announced that the Cassava group of casinos is the latest to be awarded its coveted Seal of Approval. Cassava’s Casino On Net (www.888.com) and Reef Club Casino (www.reefclubcasino.com) will join forty-one successful operations after meeting eCOGRA’s rigorous standards of fairness, customer commitment and general good practice.|
Andrew Beveridge, eCOGRA CEO, said: “We're delighted to welcome these new Seal bearers that have passed the rigorous third party inspection process carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers. Cassava presented a significant challenge for the audit process due to its size and the Compliance Committee was particularly pleased with the way in which the assessment was conducted, and the response of the organization to putting in place the necessary controls and procedures required by eCOGRA’s eGAP,'
'The initiative is gathering momentum at a gratifying rate and we are currently in discussions with a number of providers and the casinos using their software. Other casinos are currently undergoing the inspection process and I am confident that we will soon be seeing a diversity of operations powered by different software providers on our Seal list.'
Beveridge added that any casino commited to eCOGRA’s ideals and conforming to the eGAP (Generally Accepted Practices) requirements, is welcome to apply for membership. eCOGRA is an independent, strongly funded, non-profit organisation that has evolved a set of practical operating regulations to ensure fair gaming, player protection and efficiency.
