Responsible Gambling

Internet Compliance Assessment Program (iCAP)

Backed by NCPG’s expertise, iCAP is a U.S. accreditation for best practice in online gambling player protection.


The iCAP accreditation is based on the Internet Responsible Gambling Standards, which were devised by a panel of gambling harm prevention experts from around the world. The primary focus of the iCAP process is consumer protection. Ensuring that your customers, from the time they join, are able to gamble safely.

This was an absolute game changer when we were setting up our program — iCAP very clearly laid out what the elements of a highly responsible platform would look like, and basically gave us the road map to use moving forward.
