The Jackpot Factory Group Receives Online Gambling Certification
08 June 2006
(PRWEB) June 5, 2006 — We have all heard the saying “good wine gets better with age,” and there is no better way to describe The Jackpot Factory. The group was founded in 1999, when it launched its first Microgaming powered online casino. Since then it has become one of the most respected online gambling operators in the world. The Jackpot Factory is synonymous with first-class service, high quality games, and some of the most innovative promotions in the online gambling industry. In 2005, all of the group’s casinos, All Slots, All Jackpots, First Web and Wild Jack, as well as their Wild Jack Poker Room, received the coveted eCOGRA (eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance) seal.
“The eCOGRA seal is a very important indicator of the integrity and fair gaming principles that an online casino subscribes to, and it is no surprise that The Jackpot Factory passed the necessary tests to receive seals for its casinos and poker room,” says Ryan D, editor and founder of Online Gambling Insider.
http://www.online-gambling-insider.com is an independent portal and watchdog, and certifies online casinos, sports betting sites and poker rooms. Certified operators are subject to rigorous testing procedures. Qualifying criteria includes the corporate and financial backing of the operator, quality of customer service, game fairness (including player terms and conditions), games portfolio, financial processing and licensing. The most important factor taken into account when awarding a certificate is the player experience. Online Gambling Insider staff test each casino as real players, and over a period of time, every aspect of the casino or poker room’s operation is experienced first hand.
“The Jackpot Factory is the envy of many for the track record it has established,” said Ryan D. “This goes a long way towards awarding our certification, and qualifying their gambling sites for our $1,000 deposit guarantee”. However, regardless of the profile of a casino, each certified casino has to be tested thoroughly. “We need to protect the credibility of our certification process, so we have to work on facts,” Ryan continued. “We deposit between $200 and $500 during the testing process, claim bonuses, and play a minimum of three games until the wager through requirement is met,” said Ryan.
“We place a lot of emphasis on customer service, and have designed a process where we will interact with each casino over a period of time,” Ryan continues. “The Jackpot Factory truly impressed us with their attention to detail and and urgency in responding to our requests”.
But there are two areas where the group truly stands out when compared to its rivals, and that is the VIP Club and a new range of exciting promotions at the member casinos each month. “You will need to go a long way to find more rewarding promotions than at the Jackpot Factory.”
In other news, the Jackpot Factory has just launched ClearPlay, a true innovation in casino bonuses. ClearPlay has two major benefits for players. Firstly, it offers real time reporting of the playthrough requirement, and secondly, wagers on all games now contribute to the playthrough requirement being met.
All four casinos and the poker room are now certified by Online Gambling Insider. Players are protected up to a maximum of $1,000 in deposits, should they ever have a problem. “We are confident that we won’t ever have to intervene and refund a player, but it is nice for people to know that there is an independent safety net,” Ryan concludes.
