eCOGRA
SEALS OF APPROVAL
Fair, Honest and Responsible Online Gaming at Microgaming Powered Casinos

February 19, 2004, Isle of Man – Microgaming (www.microgaming.com) is proud to announce the receipt of
eCOGRA
(www.
ecogra
.org
) Seals of Approval for 23 online casinos powered by Microgaming software – the first ever online casinos to be awarded the
eCOGRA
seal. The
eCOGRA
seals recognize these casinos for their high level of fair, honest and responsible online gaming practises.

The 23 Microgaming powered casinos that have received
eCOGRA
Seals of Approval have met the standards set out in the Statements of Generally Accepted Practices (eGAP) adopted by the
eCOGRA
Board. These standards cover player protection, fair gaming and responsible conduct including technical capabilities and anti-money laundering measures. To qualify for the
eCOGRA
Seal of Approval, the casinos were reviewed by the
eCOGRA
Audit Panel which includes the international audit firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. In addition to the above casinos, several other Microgaming powered casinos are currently in the eGAP review process, so further
eCOGRA
seals should be awarded shortly.

Mark Fredericks, spokesperson for Microgaming commented, “At Microgaming we pride ourselves on being champions in the promotion of responsible gaming and fair play practises. The award of
eCOGRA
seals to Microgaming powered casinos confirms the casinos’ commitment as well as ours, to offer players the highest standards of gaming ethics for both player protection and technical capability. The
eCOGRA
seals will help to build credibility amongst players and regulators for the online gaming industry. At Microgaming, we are pleased to be setting the benchmark in this regard.”
