Following a successful review by the UK-based eCommerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA), which assessed and tested LeoVegas’ framework and routines for the protection of consumers, Group CEO, Gustaf Hagman commented that “offering a safe and secure gaming experience and preventing minors from online gambling has always been our top priority.”
“It is therefore reassuring that LeoVegas’ work in this area has now been assessed and reviewed by an external, independent party that confirms we are in conformity with the Commission’s recommendations.”
In its review, the certification agency said that LeoVegas’ gaming services “are in conformity with the recommendations the European Commission has published for online gaming.”
Founded in 2003, eCOGRA’s aim is to establish and improve operational standards and player safety requirements within the online gaming industry.
Despite the positive outcome, however, the CEO added, “our work doesn’t end here; we will continue the need to develop and raise the bar within the entire industry, to ensure gaming remains an exciting and safe form of entertainment.”
The review included a thorough assessment of all the company’s brands and markets, which LeoVegas says was taken on its own initiative – a vital step to evaluate and ensure a safe gaming experience for customers.
