Legal services publication notes popularity of eCOGRA accreditation

The Internet Business Law Services organisation has acknowledged the contribution to the online gambling industry made by player protection and standards non-profit eCOGRA on its website this month.

Describing the activities of the self-funding London-based company, IBLS notes that eCOGRA vets software and gives a seal of approval to those sites that meet its standards for fair programs, swift payments, and the ‘humane’ treatment of customers, and which accept eCOGRA as a dispute resolution arbiter in disagreements with players.

“A typical eCOGRA site has .4 complaints a month, whereas an independent site averages almost 12, the article notes. “eCOGRA has been gaining credibility and a reputation as a reliable, independent testing agency for online casinos and poker rooms. Their ‘seal of approval’ is becoming more popular, and they have attracted almost 100 out of the 2,000 online casinos to join their group & undergo their audits.”

The piece goes on to discuss eCOGRA’s use of the “Total Gaming Transaction Review (TGTR) - a perpetual monitoring and data analysis process” as a “gold standard” of gambling veracity to help build impeccable standards for the industry as a whole. The TGTR is itself audited by the international professional business services group KPMG on a regular basis.

“Overall, eCOGRA`s standards, testing principles and methods are well-regarded and they are working with other regulators and standards bodies to help guide creation of standardised rules to assure players online games are fair,” IBLS concludes.

    "I'm still waiting on mine from Slotastic which is still showing as "Under Review". Just got thru with Live Chat who were no help. They advised it took 2 days to review and approve a withdrawal request then 2 more days to transfer the requested funds. When I asked why there was such a delay beings the withdrawal was in bitcoin instead of answering my question the operator got snippy with me and just repeated what she had already told me like I was a child who had to be told twice. I think Casino Extreme was the one I was reading about that had the fastest bitcoin withdrawal payout times. I guess I just assumed all casinos accepting bitcoins would be about the same. Trial and error can be a difficult teacher sometimes. I think Slotastic is one of those casinos that hopes by delaying you'll lose your remaining balance waiting on your withdrawal to get approved then cancel your request just so you can play some more. They were at least partially correct. I did get tired of waiting and I did lose the rest of what I had won in my account but I'm not about to reverse my withdrawal again. Nope, not again. Needless to say when I do get my money from Slotastic I'll be looking for somewhere's else to play. Maybe I'll try Casino Extreme next time and hopefully I'll get lucky enough to check out their withdrawal procedures also."
