Online Casino Watchdog Standards Accepted by Philippines Regulator

Cagayan Economic Zone Authority, a Philippines-based, Asian online casino regulator, is the latest online gambling entity to accept the high standards of eCOGRA, a leading online casino watchdog. The online casinos players in the Philippines will surely be pleased that now they, too, have the global integrity and operational standards so many other online gamblers benefit from every day, all over the world.

‘We are satisfied that the standards set by eCOGRA, and the inspection and monitoring systems that support these, comprehensively cover our requirements for safe, ethical and efficient online gaming operations,’ Albee Benitez, First Cagayan President, said. After several months of due diligence, Benitez found that eCOGRA was suitable for the online casino requirements set by First Cagayan, the Master Licensor for Cagayan Economic Zone Authority. The Philippines seems to be taking its entrance into the online casino industry seriously.

Seventy-six leading online casino and poker room brands now carry the eCOGRA ‘Play It Safe’ seal. This is yet more proof to show that safe and responsible play is becoming more and more important to players when they visit an online casino. This helps online casino players around the world identify online casino gambling venues that have voluntarily committed to independent, player protective regulation and constant, ongoing monitoring by the online gambling watchdog. With the eCOGRA seal, online gamblers all around the world can feel confident when playing at these online casinos.
