eCOGRA, a well-known independent testing agency founded in 2003 with its headquarters in the United Kingdom, has revealed its plans to establish a new office in Denver, Colorado. This move is part of the agency’s strategic plan to strengthen its presence in the United States. In addition to opening the new office, eCOGRA has appointed Daniel Remmes as the new US director of compliance.
The newly established Denver office will serve as a hub for eCOGRA’s operations in the US, meeting the increasing demand for its services due to the rapid growth of the iGaming industry in North America. It will provide support to clients by offering services such as random number generator assessments, software testing, cybersecurity evaluations, and regulatory compliance reviews.
Shaun McCallaghan, eCOGRA’s chief executive officer, expressed excitement about the expansion of their operations in the US, emphasizing the pivotal role that the Colorado office will play in their overall growth. Additionally, McCallaghan praised Daniel Remmes’ appointment, highlighting his extensive experience and valuable knowledge of the online gambling market in the US.
Daniel Remmes, who brings more than 10 years of experience in iGaming regulation and compliance with companies like PlayUp Limited, IGT, and the Carousel Group, expressed his enthusiasm for his new role with eCOGRA. He emphasized the opportunity to work with the agency’s talented team and his intention to leverage his experience to ensure that regulatory issues and customer initiatives are prioritized.
As a leading internationally accredited testing agency, eCOGRA serves as the regulatory audit partner to over 200 multi-jurisdictional operators and software providers in the online gambling industry. The expansion in the US is a testament to the company’s commitment to promoting integrity and best practices in the industry.
With its new office and team of experts in place, eCOGRA is equipped to provide world-class services to a wider range of clients while continuing its mission to ensure fair and responsible gambling practices. In the past year, eCOGRA entered the Michigan market as an independent testing lab and issued certification to WinSpirit in August 2023.
