One of the greatest dangers to online poker is the fraud and collusion committed by players. Ethoca has been in the forefront of the war against this kind of fraud. Ethoca was founded in 2005 for this purpose. According to Ethoca sharing information is vital in this task.
Cryptologic is a major gaming software provider. It operates through its subsidiary, WagerLogic, which not only licenses Cryptologic software but also owns and operates online casinos. The tie up between WagerLogic and Ethoca will enable WagerLogic to offer greater payment options to its customers at greater safety levels. Speaking about the partnership, WagerLogic’s Managing Director said, “Our business is built upon the twin pillars of integrity and innovation, and that’s why we look for innovative approaches to protect the integrity of our business.”
Andre Edelbrock, CEO of Ethoca, has applauded the lead taken by Cryptologic in fighting fraud. He said, “…we look forward to their [Cryptologic’s] participation in helping to build the Global Fraud-Fighting Community powered by Ethoca.”
