Protection against Financial and Identity Fraud

In order to ensure that gamblers are protected against theft and identity
fraud, online gambling operators need to provide assurances that their gaming
sites are secure.

Sensitive information such as credit card details, addresses and contact
numbers are often required by online casinos in order to register an account or
to make financial transactions. In addition, gamblers are required to make
deposits into their casino accounts to play for real money. Because of this,
security measures need to be established to ensure that the gambler is
protected, but the onus remains on the gambler himself to verify that these
mechanisms are in place before entrusting himself to that particular site.

One of the first mechanisms a gambler needs to look for is the organisations
Privacy Policy. This in essence is a document detailing how information is
collated, the manner in which it is used and the processes used to store it
safely. When a gambler registers with an online casino, he/she is required to
provide information that verifies identity, as well as demographic data for
improved service delivery. In most instances, the casino endeavours to ensure
that this information will remain strictly confidential, and that they will not
distribute it to third parties. (Gamblers should ensure that the Privacy Policy
is clear on this subject, as some operators use third party processors or are
required to furnish private information under law.) Once issued, personal
information at online casinos is only made available to limited senior
personnel. It is protected against hackers by firewalls and various other
software programmes.

The most daunting of all transactions at online gambling sites is the
depositing of funds. However, considering that online gambling is estimated to
generate over $30 billion a year, reputable casino operators would not
jeopardise their sizeable revenues by skimping on security measures. As such,
they employ expert technology such as the 128-bit Secure Socket Layer Encryption
to scramble information. This information can only be unscrambled by the
intended recipient, thereby ensuring that third party interveners are unable to
access personal information. Additional security is usually provided by
independent security verification experts such as Thawte or VeriSign, and most
online casinos will display these verification logos on their homepage.

The last online casino security consideration for gamblers is effective
dispute resolution. To ensure that winning payouts and bonus credits are
effectively and fairly managed, most casinos ensure that every transaction is
archived. These records are transparent and allow gamblers to view their
transaction and betting histories. It is strongly advised that gamblers make
sure their casino of choice offers this sort of dispute resolution technology
and where possible, to ensure that their casino is supported by eCogra
(e-Commerce Online Gambling Regulation & Approval), who not only set the
standards for payouts at their affiliates, but who are able to mediate in
disputes between their affiliates and gamblers.
