eCOGRA Accreditation for Swedish Gambling Software Supplier
October 21, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — One of the online gambling industry's top software developers, Net Entertainment, has been accredited by the player protection and standards body eCOGRA following a range of comprehensive software, probity, and operating systems inspections by independent auditors.
eCOGRA independent directors on the Seals Compliance Committee found the Swedish company to be compliant with eCOGRA’s best practice standards applicable to software suppliers.
The audit confirms that the development, implementation, and maintenance of the Net Entertainment software is representative of industry best practice standards, opening the way for Net Entertainment licensees of the firm's popular CasinoModule management and operating system to apply for the eCOGRA Safe and Fair online casino seal.
Since 2003, the seal has been associated with tier one levels of fair and responsible gaming, professional conduct, and high operating standards when displayed on an online gambling website.
The first Net Entertainment licensees have already been successful in achieving individual Safe and Fair accreditations after undergoing extensive inspection and monitoring, and include the major European companies Unibet.com, Digibet.com and CasinoRoom.com. Other licensees are currently undergoing the accreditation process.
Congratulating both Net Entertainment and its licensees, eCOGRA CEO Andrew Beveridge said that there was increasing demand from software developers for his organization's testing and monitoring services.
"With a further 20 leading suppliers now also approved or currently undergoing eGAP reviews, this shows eCOGRA has become accepted as the industry's pre-eminent standards setting authority operating wholly independent of any particular supplier or operator but in the best interests of player assurance," he said.
Net Entertainment CEO Johan Ohman applauded his management team on achieving accreditation: "Meeting high standards in a tough inspection regime like this says much for the commitment and dedication of all involved, and is an important milestone in operational excellence and player protection for the company," he said.
Listed in Stockholm, Net Entertainment was founded in 1996 and is a leading B2B provider in the online gambling industry. The company develops quality gaming software, which is licensed to an international customer base currently made up of more than 60 different companies, such as Unibet, Gamebookers, PokerRoom, and Entraction.
