    The Interactive Gaming Council (IGC), which has as one of it’s corporate missions to promote and publicize the Gaming industry’s assets has appointed John Fitzgerald as its new chief executive.

    eGaming Review reports that Fitzgerald, who previously worked as general counsel at CryptoLogic, said he intended to redouble in his efforts to promote international regulation of the industry and that the sector was already very active in ensuring a safe environment for its customers.

    “…four key points – addressing issues surrounding problem gambling, ensuring operators do everything they can to keep minors away from online gaming sites, dealing with money laundering and ensuring egaming executives and firms pass the strictest probity tests.”

    “We would like to show people how we work and focus on the four core issues we have mentioned, because they are the ones the critics always bring up. We’re a bit fed up with the industry talking about credibility because we don’t need to talk about it. Operators competing at the highest level are the most credible already and we are past that. We have got to show people what we are doing about problem and underage gambling, money laundering and the probity of egaming operators.” said Fitzgerald:

    “We’re not doing this because these issues need to be addressed in online gaming,” John Anderson, chairman of the board of the IGC said. “We’re doing it to show that the industry addresses these issues as a matter of course and that the levels of professionalism are beyond reproach. For instance, the cases of money laundering among our members are nil.”

    “…Fitzgerald said he welcomed any attempt to regulate online gaming and wanted to emphasise the positive outcome such activity could have. “Rather than always concentrating on the negatives, for example, how positive would it be for the US to be able to collect the tax dollars of a regulated online gaming industry?,” he said.

    Both Anderson and Fitzgerald welcome a debate on the regulation of online gambling as lont as it is pursued with an open mind and without hidden agendas.
