Today, there are few people who have not played at least one game, or in the least tried their luck at some free play at the online casino. Due to the increasing numbers of casinos, there have been several non-profit organizations, whose goals are to regulate sites, which have popped up in the last few years. One such firm, the e-Commerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) committee, has been spending the last several months gathering data from participating online casino sites and giving reputable ones their seal of approval.
As a reward for all their hard work in regulating and maintaining online casinos, Gambling Online Magazine has announced eCOGRA as the gold medal winner of the Top Watchdog Award, as chosen by 27,000 online casino players world wide. This award proves to gamblers that the eCOGRA seal of approval, displayed at online casino sites that have passed their arduous assessments, is only provided to those sites which are truly the best in the business. Currently, there are 56 online casino sites that have received the “Play it Safe” seal; all of which are being continuously supervised by the non-profit organization.
