With this certification, eCOGRA now offers a comprehensive range of services in six US jurisdictions, serving the igaming industry in 36 jurisdictions globally, helping clients meet regulatory standards to provide players with a gaming environment that is safe and secure.

Services that will be offered by the testing laboratory in Connecticut include software testing, RNG evaluations, cybersecurity assessments and regulatory compliance reviews, helping to evaluate the fairness and security of gaming platforms.

Shaun McCallaghan, CEO of eCOGRA, stated: “We are thrilled to extend our services to the dynamic market of Connecticut.

The testing laboratory also plans to form partnerships with local operators and software providers in the Constitution State to “help shape the gambling landscape in Connecticut, ensuring the highest standards of integrity and player protection”.

“eCOGRA’s authorisation to provide services in Connecticut is a testament to the company’s expertise, professionalism, and unwavering dedication to the gambling industry,” added Bradley Khoury, CTO of eCOGRA.
