PartyGaming achieves eCOGRA accreditation

Empire Casino, London

Three of PartyGaming's online gambling sites have received eCOGRA accreditation this week, having passed the testing and inspection regime for online casinos and poker rooms.

The three sites under PartyGaming that now have the eCOGRA seal of approval are Party Casino, PartyPoker and EmpirePoker.

"After extensive testing and inspection by the eCOGRA professional compliance team, PartyGaming passed with flying colors," said Andrew Beveridge, CEO of eCOGRA, the independent player protection and standards organization.


"Our independent directors have awarded the revocable 'Safe and Fair' seal, and are satisfied that, and meet the required standards for responsible gambling, player protection, management and fiscal integrity and operational best practice."

eCOGRA provides assessment services for the European Gaming and Betting Association, of which PartyGaming is a member. Both organizations share a common goal of securing the highest standards of operational and regulatory compliance in the online gambling industry.

A PartyGaming official also welcomed the announcement that its sites had gained approval by eCOGRA.

"PartyGaming is committed to responsible gaming and [we] want all of our players to play on our online sites for the right reason - to have fun and play within their means. These new seals show our sites provide our players with a very high level of protection backed by our EGBA membership and eCOGRA accreditation," said Jim Ryan, PartyGaming CEO.

"The eCOGRA standards are focused on providing player assurances in the areas of fair gaming, player protection and responsible operator behaviour and the EGBA standards take this level of commitment further and include standards which allow us, as a member, to demonstrate that we are on a par with, or exceed, the standards required by leading licensing jurisdictions and state monopolies around the globe."
