eCOGRA describes ICEi 2009 as "coming of age" for e-gaming sector

(UK).- ICEi 2009, which takes place within the International Gaming Expo at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London between January 27-29 – will include the most mature, accountable and responsible gathering of e-gaming exhibitors in the industry’s brief history, according to a leading regulatory body.

T

ex Rees, Fair Gaming Advocate for e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA), noted: “The e-gaming industry has worked tirelessly over the last decade to ensure it conducts itself with the integrity and transparency absolutely vital to player protection and retention. Anyone visiting ICEi 2009 will be exposed to a sector made up of modern, go-ahead companies committed to best business practice – I think, in some ways, January’s exhibition can be described as a ‘coming of age’ for e-gaming.

A non-profit organization, eCOGRA is the independent standards authority of the online gaming industry, specifically overseeing fair gaming, player protection and responsible operator conduct. The function that eCOGRA performs protects those who engage in online gaming. Currently, 125 sites are regulated, monitored and certified with the eCOGRA “Safe & Fair” Seal.

On eCOGRA’s presence at ICEi 2009, Rees added: “We have recently extended our remit beyond online casinos and poker rooms to include bingo and sportsbooks. We are extremely keen to meet the people and companies who exist in this sector and see if we can work together to extend our services beyond our current offerings.”
