Approval from eCOGRA is much sought after by online casinos because it gives them credibility as reputed and secure gambling sites. Therefore hitherto unapproved online casinos submit their operations for the eCOGRA inspection, hoping that they will pass the test. Two online casinos powered by the leading online gaming software provider Microgaming have just announced that they have received the requisite approval from eCOGRA. Both belong to the Club Red Gaming group. One is the flagship online casino of the group, Red Flush, and the other is Casino La Vida.
Now both Red Flush online casino and Casino La Vida will be allowed to display the coveted "Safe & Fair" seal from eCOGRA. Of the numerous online casinos on the Internet only 145 casinos have been given the permission to display the seal on the web sites. This implies that they have successfully achieved the required standards in the initial inspection and, where applicable, in the periodic monitoring for compliance as well. The eCOGRA audit covers issues like responsible gambling measures, fair gaming standards, unbiased dispute resolution, fair and timely payouts and efficient customer support.
Alex Roberts, the Retention Manager at Red Flush online casino, said, "We're certainly proud of our newest accomplishment and are glad to be recognized for our ongoing transparency, integrity and satisfactory operating standards." The eCOGRA seal is the newest accomplishment for both the online casinos because they have registered accomplishments earlier. When Red Flush online casino was launched in 2008 it received the Best New Online Casino Award from Casinomeister. Casino La Vida was launched in 2010. It also received the title of the Best New Online Casino, but from Online Gambling Insider.
eCOGRA was founded in 2003 by competing online gambling companies with the objective of improving operational standards and player protection in the Internet gambling space. However it functions independently without reporting to its founders and without receiving any funding from them. This is one reason why its approvals have gained credibility in the industry. The eCOGRA standards cover not only online casinos but also poker rooms, bingo halls, sports betting, mobile casino gambling, live dealer gambling, software providers and even affiliate programs. eCOGRA seals are recognized by several international online gambling regulators and by bodies such as the European Gaming and Betting Association. But most of all they are looked for by online players who are instinctively comfortable wagering at a site that carries an eCOGRA seal.
Microgaming is one of the online gaming software providers that have been certified by eCOGRA. Hence being a Microgaming powered casino must have made it a bit easier for Red Flush and Casino La Vida to get the eCOGRA seal.
