impressive and were presented for a full and practical inspection in a
very professional manner by Spin3 staff.
`Spin3`s software had already passed with flying colours
during earlier eCOGRA inspections, when some of its clients applied for
our mobile casino operator accreditation,` said Beveridge.
`It was pleasing to see that the same level of attention to detail,
efficiency and fair gaming was found in the other facets of its
business as a provider when our auditors engaged with them on this
wider review. To pass our rigorous review process at the first time of
asking is hugely impressive,` he added.
