eCOGRA Awards Industry's First Ever Mobile Gambling Provider Accreditation to Spin3

Spin3 Recognised for Highest Standards of Best Practice

LONDON--(Marketwire - June 4, 2009) - Leading full service mobile gambling solutions provider Spin3 (www.spin3.com)*, powered by Microgaming (www.microgaming.com), the world's largest online gaming software provider, has today become the first specialised mobile gambling provider to earn the software accreditation seal from the independent player protection and standards organisation eCOGRA.

The accreditation was achieved following a range of comprehensive software, probity and on-site operating systems inspections by auditors from eCOGRA's compliance division, who certified that the company meets eCOGRA's best practice business and technology standards applicable to software suppliers.

The audit confirms that the development, implementation, maintenance and security of Spin3's mobile games portfolio and back-office systems are representative of industry best practice standards.

Since 2003, the seal has become synonymous with tier one levels of fair and responsible gaming, professional conduct and superior operating standards when displayed on an online gambling website.

Some of the most successful and established mobile casinos now bear the eCOGRA operators' Safe and Fair seal including Royal Vegas (www.royalvegasmobile.com); Spin Palace (www.spinpalacemobile.com); 32 Red Mobile (www.32redmobile.com) and Wild Jack (http://mobile.wildjack.com) -- all powered by Spin3.

Andrew Beveridge, CEO of eCOGRA, congratulated the management and staff of Spin3 on the accreditation, commenting that the facilities had been 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.

Matti Zinder, Head of Spin3, said, "To become the first ever provider of mobile gambling services to receive eCOGRA certification is a terrific achievement for Spin3, and recognition of our industry-leading standards, processes, methodologies and services. The eCOGRA logo is an international mark of best practice, assuring operators and their customers that our games and gambling services meet the highest standards of quality, transparency and integrity, now and in the future."
