In an online gaming world in which fraud can theoretically run rampant, eCogra tries to provide a landmark reference for players. A non profit organization, eCogra has made it its mission to help players locate fair and safe online poker and casino sites.
Because eCogra only endorses poker rooms, online casinos and gambling portals which live up to its strict standards regarding not only player safety and fairness, but also the quality of the content presented, players can regard sites bearing the eCogra seal of approval as quality ones from several perspectives.
Websites which are awarded the eCogra seal of approval are re-checked periodically to make sure that they do indeed uphold the standards for which they were granted the seal in the first-place, and that they do indeed advocate responsible conduct towards their patrons.
How should the eCogra seal influence your view of a particular site? First of all, it should act as a first line of guarantee for you. If you cannot find the eCogra seal displayed on a site, you should grow more cautious. If you run into a problem that requires mediation on an eCogra approved website, eCogra will attempt to help you get your problem sorted.
