eCOGRA, a firm specializing in gaming integrity, reliability and independent testing, has expanded its reach in the US online casino market after receiving a license to enter Connecticut.
Marking its sixth US jurisdiction, eCOGRA has been authorized by the Connecticut State Department of Consumer Protection, allowing it to bring its testing, inspection, and certification services to the Constitution State.
The firm has described Connecticut’s online casino market as a “crucial” jurisdiction for its business, owing to its “vibrant gaming community and growing online sector”.
Shaun McCallaghan, CEO of eCOGRA, explained: “We are thrilled to extend our services to the dynamic market of Connecticut. With our independent testing, inspection, and certification expertise, we aim to foster a transparent and secure online gambling ecosystem that benefits players, suppliers, and operators.”
Following its licensure, eCOGRA is focusing on developing relationships and partnerships with operators and suppliers in the state to help ensure the quality and integrity of the market. The services it will provide include software testing, RNG evaluations, cybersecurity assessments and compliance reviews.
The two licensed online casino operators in Connecticut are FanDuel and DraftKings, with the third licensee, former state lottery partner Rush Street Interactive (RSI), unable to offer online casino products.
Bradley Khoury, CTO of eCOGRA, added: “eCOGRA’s authorization to provide services in Connecticut is a testament to the company’s expertise, professionalism, and unwavering dedication to the gambling industry.
“As the market leader in independent testing, inspection, and certification, eCOGRA continues to champion fairness, trust, and accountability.”
