|Following closely on the heels of eCOGRA's recent approval and acceptance of poker software supplier Ongame as a member, the online gambling regulatory body has announced the award of the 'Play It Safe' seal to PokerRoom.com.|
PokerRoom.com has over 3.8 million global players from more than 140 countries and these will now have the benefit of eCOGRA regulations governing every aspect of poker operations from fair gaming to timeous payouts and efficient customer service.
The award of the first poker seal has significant implications for the booming online poker industry, representing as it does real and enforced self-regulation.
eCOGRA CEO Andrew Beveridge said the successful PokerRoom.com accreditation is an important milestone for both the poker industry and his organisation.
'PokerRoom.com is a highly respected brand handling a significant proportion of the international online poker market, and their commitment to player protection and responsible gaming through the G4 organisation is well known, Beveridge comments.
