MRG affirms commitment to safe gambling environment with EGBA

MRG has been confirmed as the latest member of Brussels-based industry body  the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA).

The EGBA represents leading iGaming operators that are established, licensed and regulated within the EU. It works together with national authorities, EU authorities and other stakeholders towards a well-regulated and attractive iGaming offer for EU citizens.

The industry body pursues and promotes the creation of a safe and reliable European digital environment for iGaming players and the association takes a lead on responsible gaming and sustainable regulation. For instance, all EGBA members are compulsorily audited on their compliance with the CEN Workshop Agreement on Responsible Remote Gambling Measures.

MRG shares EGBA’s view that the industry must work closer together to create a safe and reliable European digital environment for iGaming players, says Per Norman, CEO of MRG. Green Gaming has been a core of our strategy since the foundation of the Group and we are enthusiastic about contributing to the development of more Green iGaming services across Europe.

Today, EGBA’s members together represents more than 20 million EU consumers. Further, the demand of Europe’s digital consumers for attractive and innovative entertainment services continues to grow year upon year.

Maarten Haijer, secretary general of the EGBA, commented: “We are very pleased that MRG has joined the EGBA family, and we look forward to working closely together with them towards an open, well-regulated market for online gaming in the EU and EEA.

“MRG brings a strong profile of responsibility, and together we will work towards developing attractive regulated markets that are capable of channelling consumers, and providing a high level of consumer protection.

“It’s an exciting but challenging time for European operators, and we are pleased that reputable operators like MRG recognise the benefits of working closer together through the EGBA in order to meet these challenges.”
