After being awarded the eCOGRA ‘Safe and Fair Seal, Kaizen Gaming heaped praise on the achievement of ‘another step towards its safe and responsible journey.’
ECOGRA praises the newly renamed Greece-based organization as joining “an outstanding group of online gambling operators that have demonstrated a practical commitment to higher standards of responsible conduct, fair gaming, integrity and player service.”
The eCOGRA Healthy and Fair seal, praised as showing “the importance of innovation and responsibility when it comes to responsible gaming,” is awarded to operators who comply with the “Generally Accepted Practice” standards of London-based organisations.
The accreditation requires a rigorous and unbiased audit process that reviews a range of fields, from corporate governance to legal compliance and financial, system and operational controls.
The evaluation includes player payments and receipts, record preservation, internal compliance standards, responsible gaming, player and gaming funds, and player information IT protects, with specific emphasis being put on high-risk areas, such as processes ensuring legitimate transactions and responsible communication.
Shaun McCallaghan, chief executive of eCOGRA, stated: “Our onsite review covering key elements of governance, information security, finance and gaming operations revealed an internal control environment that fully supports the underlying principles of eCOGRA’s generally accepted practices. We are particularly proud to have these deserving brands display the eCOGRA Safe and Fair seal.”
Kaizen Gaming currently employs over 750 people and operates through its Betano organisation in the six countries of Greece and Cyprus with the Stoiximan name, as well as in Germany, Romania, Portugal and Brazil.
Panagiotis Skyrlas, Head of Kaizen Gaming Information Security Compliance, added: “eCOGRA’s Safe and Fair seal demonstrates our highest goal; to position ourselves amongst the global leaders when it comes to safe and responsible gaming.
“We leverage cutting edge technology, we ensure the independence of our systems for optimum safety and implement processes that ensure a safe and responsible gaming environment. These are our top priorities, this is our chosen path in order to offer high quality services and products. It is our responsibility to level up our game.”
