The newest testing platform of independent online gambling monitor, eCommerce and Online Gambling Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA), has been given the seal of approval from the Government of Gibraltar.
Already the standard bearer for monitoring fair gaming, service and operator conduct, eCOGRA recently introduced a dedicated team of experts to provide even more extensive evaluation and data analysis for online gaming operators, the "Total Gaming Transaction Review."
Included in the service, among other things, are onsite software audits to ensure best practice standards and continual monitoring and verification of all data, including payout percentages and random number generation.
This week, eCOGRA has announced, the Total Gaming Transaction Review has been extensively evaluated by Gibraltar authorities and approved for testing and certifying Gibraltar's gambling industry licensees.
"We are delighted," says eCOGRA CEO Andrew Beveridge, "that a regulator of the calibre of the GRA has accepted this advanced process after intensive study.
"Our testing principles and methodologies have now been recognized by several other international jurisdictions concerned with protecting players through the professional and continuous testing of online casino and poker room operators."
To date, 115 sites comply with eCOGRA requirements and have been awarded the coveted "Play It Safe" seal that identifies to players the safest online gambling sites on the Web.
