eCOGRA Makes Offer To UK RE:Online Gambling

November 13th, 2012  :  Written by Patriot #2

eCOGRA logoeCOGRA [eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance], the online gambling industry’s independent player protection and standards authority, has offered consulting services to the UK DCMS [Department of Culture, Media and Sport] regarding the current move to regulate online gambling in Europe. No word yet from the UK as to whether they’re interested.

It’s an interesting move by eCOGRA. They are one of the larger self-regulating bodies in online gambling, though they were founded by and are led by the major operators in the industry including OnGame, MicroGaming and 888 Holdings. It truly is an insiders club more than a regulating body but let’s not split hairs. What they’re doing is in their own best interest, but also serves the industry as a whole. If they can assist the UK/EU in establishing regulation, everyone will benefit, including players.

eCOGRA put out a press release you can read here.
