|The eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) and Casino City have announced a joint agreement which will cement their common goal of a ‘safe and properly supported online gaming experience,’ and will introduce new eCOGRA regulation features on the Casino City website.|
Andrew Beveridge, Executive Director of eCOGRA, says 'We are delighted to work with a responsible, professional, influential organization like Casino City in further expanding the eCOGRA player protection and casino regulating initiative. Although this is an innovative arrangement on the part of Casino City, we look forward to similar relationships that improve communication with both the industry and the players.”
Michael Corfman, President and CEO of Casino City says 'We are very pleased to put our full support behind eCOGRA because its goals in establishing standards for player protection are critical to both players and the online gaming industry. The commitment to self-regulation demonstrated by the 44 current eCOGRA approved casinos is to be applauded. We anticipate and hope that our action in recognizing approved casinos will further encourage other casinos and software vendors in their decision to undergo the rigorous approval process.'
Casino City has been around since 1995 and strives to help players make the right choices about where they gamble, through providing accurate information about the Industry. eCOGRA, meanwhile, devotes itself to player protection by advocating good practise and fair play in online gaming, issuing certification to those casinos that pass its stringent standards.
