The group is live in 38 jurisdictions around the world.

The Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (MINCETUR) has authorized Ecogra to operate and offer players the full suite of iGaming testing, inspection and certification (TIC) services.

The group gained this approval within a couple weeks of announcing its Colorado office opening and its addition of several new US-based team members.

The company described this series of achievements as “significant milestones” in its ongoing global expansion plans.

With the Peruvian market access, Ecogra is now present in 38 jurisdictions.

The group said in a statement, “With the latest authorization, Ecogra is now operational in all key regulated South American jurisdictions. Ecogra’s latest jurisdictional approval is a testament to the company’s commitment to regulatory compliance and best practices within the online gambling industry.”

Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru Juan Carlos Mathews commented, “This is the first time that this important economic activity is regulated in the country. In South America, Peru becomes the third country to regulate it, after Colombia and Argentina (in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Cordoba, and Mendoza).”

Ecogra Chief Technical Officer Bradley Khoury took a moment to express the group’s enthusiasm to receive the approval from MINCETUR.

He said, “We are thrilled to receive the green light to offer our services in Peru. This approval not only recognizes our unwavering dedication to the highest industry standards but also reinforces our position as a trusted partner in the global online gaming sector.

“We are committed to working closely with Peruvian operators and software providers to ensure the integrity and fairness of online gambling offerings.”
