eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) recently renewed its seal of approval for a rogue online casino operation despite public outcries from affiliates across the world.

The Bella Vegas Casino group (part of Grand Prive), earlier this year decided to cut off all its so-called "life time affiliates" in a shocking move that had a real watchdog - J. Todd - post several Perspective Weekly YouTube Videos condemning the move

Todd's latest video points out that the folks behind Bella Vegas continue to develop new online casinos.

"Many affiliates and webmasters have been waiting for some type of answer from these sacks of crap," Todd lashes out in the April 17 edition.

The idea that a so-called self-proclaimed "regulatory" group like eCOGRA can actually continue to insult the online casino and affiliate community's intelligence by renewing this group's seal of approval is beyond comprehension. 

Amazingly, eCOGRA lists a "Code of Conduct" on its website, but quite frankly we couldn't get beyond the "Player Protection" requirement as we didn't have enough time to wade through all this BS.   What's the point of having policy if your "APPROVED" members can't follow such policy?

PLAYER PROTECTION

100 Payment to and Receipts from Players

101 Minimum Information Requirements

102 Minimum Security Requirements

103 Responsible Gaming

104 Player and Game Funds

105 Player Information

The folks over at the Gambling Portal Webmasters Association have started a nice thread about this situation. 

Maybe eCOGRA can help explain why they renewed Bella Vegas' seal of approval.
