Online Gambling Accreditation RG Check - Internet Launches in Canada

2014-08-20 00:00:00

Online casinos that are looking for a way to assure proper accreditation can use RG Check-Internet which is an international accreditation program. RG Check-Internet was launched by the Responsible Gaming Council (RGC) which is an adaptation from the RG Check-Venue program. RGC will run the program in Canada while internationally the program will be run by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

When it comes to getting accreditation, online casinos want to use a company that is reliable and trusted. The RG Check-Venue system started in 2011 and it accredited 60 venues. “RGC set out to create the gold standard of consumer protection,” says RGC CEO Jon Kelly. “The RG Check program, based on 7 standards and 51 criteria, gives Internet gambling providers the opportunity to have their responsible gambling safeguards assessed against comprehensive international standards and a rigorous accreditation process.”

Getting an accreditation from RG Check is a six-month process which wraps up with an independent assessment done by a panel of experts. The accreditation is reviewed each year.

Online gambling firms always want to make sure that they are accredited so having another option will be helpful. Providing consumers with the best and most reliable online casino games is critical in today’s high tech market with a number of online casinos competing against one another. RG Check-Internet should prove to be a popular accreditation program.
