In an industry like online gambling any bit of help to legitimize it is always welcome as it increases the cache of trust given to the particular casino. It is for this reason that any kind of endorsement is considered as highly significant.Just this week the Fortune Lounge Group, a large company that operates at least eight online casinos and three poker rooms, was recently given certification by the Online Gambling Insider, an independent industry watchdog. The certification acts as an endorsement for the online casino operator.
The casino group, which already carries the eCOGRA “Play It Safe” seal, was given the approval by the Online Gambling Insider for its casinos. The Fortune Lounge Group operates casinos like Royal Vegas Casino, Fortune Room Casino as well as the online poker room Poker Time.
As a result of this endorsement, players at any of the Fortune Group’s casinos are protected by up to a maximum of $1,000 in deposits – a form of protection or insurance if ever they encounter any kind of problem in the course of operating their casinos and poker rooms.
“We are confident that we won’t ever have to intervene and refund a player, but it is reassuring for people to know that there is an independent safety net,” revealed Ryan D, Editor of Online Gambling Insider. “However, if a player referred by us ends up being short changed, we will step in and refund them.”
The Fortune Lounge Group launched its first online casino the 7 Sultans in 1999. Since then the Group has been able to develop a wide range of online gambling brands that currently offer over 150 casino games.
