eCOGRA, one of the most trusted online gambling player protection and standards bodies, has changed ownership following a management buy-out that took place recently. eCOGRA, that was initially owned by the three founding online gambling groups has now moved on to a new ownership structure that does not include any online casino software or service providers. The new Board constitutes former Independent Directors who include Michael Hirst OBE, Bill Henbrey, Bill Galston OBE, Frank Catania and Andrew Beveridge. eCOGRA has now achieved a truly independent status. This new move for complete independence has come in response to the maturing online gaming market.
eCOGRA, which was established in the year 2003 works closely with operators and affiliates to ensure high standards and player protection in the industry. The eCOGRA Safe and Fair seal is something that players look for and believe in when venturing into online gambling activities. Players know for sure that if the online gambling casino has the eCOGRA Safe and Fair seal then they are in good hands.
Chief Executive, Andrew Beveridge and his team, have big plans for eCOGRA in the near future. eCOGRA is working towards becoming an indispensable entity that will in help shape new online casino gaming regulations, offer specialized advice and assistance to existing and emerging jurisdictions and be the vanguard of establishing industry standards.
