Online bookmaker and casino operator bet365 has struck a deal with testing agency eCOGRA to ensure the company’s products meet fairness requirements.
Andrew Beveridge, chief executive of eCOGRA, explained what his company would be doing for the Stoke-based online gambling company.
He said: “eCOGRA looks forward to assisting bet365 with future certification endeavours while ensuring the group remains compliant in the markets in which it currently operates.”
These markets include the UK as well as Spain and Denmark where bet365 has recently gained certification to offer their services. eCOGRA will ensure that bet365 meets all of the criteria in place that determine whether gambling operators can hold a licence to offer online gambling in that market.
Among the many aspects of this is the casino games payout percentage report that eCOGRA publishes and can be seen on casino websites. This allows players to see for themselves the expected payout percentage across the whole casino as well as for specific game types such as slots, roulette, blackjack and video poker.
Compliance and information officer at bet365, Steven Degg, added: “bet365 selected eCOGRA based on the depth of skills, experience of their resources and a successful track record in providing compliance services to other leading operators.”
