The testing firm eCOGRA has long been a mainstay of the British market, but it is making its presence more known in North America.

The group announced this week it is opening a North American office in Denver, CO. The group currently works in six states with regulated online casino and is looking to expand into more in the future to go along with the 37 markets where it has jurisdictional approval.

The new office comes with a new hire as well. Daniel Remmes is coming on board as the team’s new U.S. Director of Compliance. Remmes brings a long career of compliance experience to the table, including stings with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and, more recently, as the Compliance Manager for IGT PlaySports.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our operations in the United States and believe that our presence in Colorado will play a pivotal role in our growth,” said Shaun McCallaghan, CEO of eCOGRA. “Daniel Remmes is an outstanding addition to our team. His extensive experience and knowledge of the U.S online gambling market will be invaluable as we navigate this exciting chapter.”

“I’m thrilled to begin this new role with eCOGRA and to seize the opportunity to work with our talented team. eCOGRA is recognized as a leading internationally accredited testing agency, with specialization in the certification of online gambling software & systems; specific to the company’s expansion of business in the U.S market, I look forward to leveraging my decade of iGaming compliance experience to ensure all regulatory matters and customer initiatives are treated with the utmost importance,” added Remmes.

The new office will offer a range of services to U.S. operators, including RNG evaluations, cybersecurity assessments, and compliance reviews.
