Betsson Group Certified as Safe and Fair Operator
Betsson Group was recently certified as a Safe and Fair operator – one of the highest accreditations on an international scale regarding online gambling operations, with a strong focus on responsible gaming. The certification was carried out by eCOGRA – an independent testing agency.
For this seal, Betsson Group had to undergo a rigorous audit process covering the nine key areas of eCOGRA’s generally accepted practices (eGAP).
Jesper Svensson, CEO for Betsson Operations said “We are really proud of this accreditation as it enables us to further demonstrate to our 685,000+ customers and stakeholders that we are truly committed in providing a fair, responsible and fun gaming experience with access to 24/7 support. The seal acknowledges all the hard work done by the different teams to get us to where we are today and we will continue this important work.”
As a Safe and Fair seal holder, Betsson is committed to further promote responsible gambling by having the proper controls, prevent underage gambling and adhering to advertising and marketing regulations. It also certifies that Betsson has strict measures that prevent and report any fraudulent customer activity, including money laundering. As a certified company, Betsson also passed the meticulous tests that ensure the safeguarding of customers’ data, privacy, and funds. The audit process also looked at and assessed Betsson’s products to ensure that the company operates in a fair manner and in accordance to the published game rules.
eCOGRA Chief Executive Officer, Shaun McCallaghan said, “Our onsite review covering elements of corporate governance, legal compliance, financial controls, systems controls and operational controls revealed an exceptionally high regard for player protection and a noteworthy commitment to compliance. We are extremely proud to have an organisation of Betsson’s calibre and reputation displaying our Safe and Fair seal on their site.”
