|September 12, 2005 – Kahnawake, Canada – The Jackpot Factory Group (www.jackpotfactory.com), a leading online casino group, announced today that it has successfully implemented a responsible gaming program formulated by the eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA). The Microgaming powered casino group, representing All Slots Casino, All Jackpots Casino, First Web Casino, and Wild Jack Casino and Poker, feels that it is imperative for the online casino industry to act in a proactive and responsible manner on the issue of responsible gaming.|
In compliance with eCOGRA, all Jackpot Factory Group casinos offer advice on how to gamble in a responsible manner and how to detect potential gambling problems. The casinos allow players to take the National Opinion Research Center of the University of Chicago’s (NORC) confidential diagnostic test, a highly respected test used by psychologists across the country.
“The Jackpot Factory Group cares first and foremost about our players. As such, we take the issue of responsible gaming very seriously. Our managers have been in constant discussion with eCOGRA to learn how best to implement this program. We are pleased to be a part of this important effort and proud that the high standards of integrity held by our casinos are worthy of the eCOGRA seal,” said David Brickman, Spokesperson for the Jackpot Factory Group.
“eCOGRA strongly believes that the prevention of underage gambling and identifying and helping problem gamblers is a core objective in running an integrity-driven online gambling operation with player protection front-of-mind. Jackpot Factory is among the first to implement our suggested program, which includes staff training in this critical area,” said Andrew Beveridge, CEO of eCOGRA.
David Brickman further explained, “Our mission is to promote safe, fun responsible gaming and for this reason we’re committed to do our role in stopping underage gambling. Casino managers have been trained on the latest technology and ID techniques to detect red flags as soon as they happen.
“Gambling on video slots, or any other casino game for that matter, is a great form of leisure and entertainment, but for some it can potentially be dangerous. If a player needs a cooling off period, we’re going to encourage them to do so. As one of the largest online casino groups focusing on slots and roulette, the Jackpot Factory is taking the bull by the horns.”
