The International Social Games Association Releases Best Practices

The International Social Games Association is the global industry body that represents social gaming companies and it has released a guideline of best practice principles and has also requested a study of the effects of social games.

Social gaming is newer to the industry and the ISGA wanted to ensure that there was a firm set of best practices to reference.

The principles are related to five areas within the industry and were created to ensure that games as well as their providers:

· Adhere to necessary laws and regulations

· Are transparent in their functionality

· Treat purchases and payments responsibly

· Manage player privacy appropriately

· Use appropriate advertising models

Luc Delany, ISGA CEO, said:

“The social games industry is thriving and fast growing – over 750 million people play social games worldwide, and social games companies are driving economic growth. The launch of our best practice principles reflects our industry’s need to ensure games are developed and operated in a responsible way at a time when the way people play and pay for games is changing.”

Dr. Rohan Miller, research lead at Harvest Strategy, said:

“Social games have very quickly reached hundreds of millions of people around the world. Their rapid rise has drawn attention and questions from regulators, parents and players alike – we look forward to exploring these questions and answers to them in the coming months.”

Paul Mathews, ISGA Chairman, said:

“We’re proud to release our best practice principles and begin working to understand how social games are changing the way people play games – we look forward to sharing research findings with the industry and interested stakeholders, and hope that the arrival of robust research will help address concerns about hypothetical risks associated with social games.”

The ISGA will put the best practices into effect immediately.

The reason why your withdrawal was denied was due to you claiming MORE than four free bonuses without making a successful deposit between free bonus claims. Yes the bonus was sent to you to thank you for your previous deposit, but that deposit was more than a month ago.  We clearly state that all players need to adhere to free bonus terms and also ensure that they keep their free money redemptions to a minimum or alternatively make frequent deposits to ensure they maintain a health bonus to purchase ratio. You are more than welcome to claim free bonuses, but please make sure to deposit frequently  Regards Jason   thank you jason. yes  i know why i was  denied- as i said  i know your rules- it is me that i made an error when i see the thanks bonus- and  then i was  confused  when one day after i received an other bonus where i was eligible  that is all- you explained me  that te $40 was for active players  and $50 for no depositors - ok it is clear  for me now- just  a mistake- thank you fo r  your intervention-I am  not an  enough active  player so  i am no depositor- please i sent my documents  and i did no get a confirmaton about the  account  verification- can  you make something   for that please ? Thank you very much  for your help Jason  "

    "Hi! I started playing online casino in 2006, before I was playing slot machines in land casinos. i discovered the online casino world by simply clicking on a pub on the internet and it allowed me to open my first account on an online casino.Since I was passionate about slot machines, I preferred playing in an online casino instead of the traditional casinos because i found excitement in an online casino is much larger, it not only money but also save a lot of time while enjoying the same excitement at home.My first casino was Casino770, i started playing super multitimes progressive slot and I remember I won with good combinations.  "
