The ECA members have extensive expertise that is founded upon decades of experience. Based on our integrity and professionalism in managing our business, the casino industry in Europe has progressed over the years in a gradual and responsible manner to adapt to a changing society, in particular in terms of the economy, regulatory landscape and, of course, technology. In this respect, our business has evolved from the simple provision of traditional casino table games to a far broader casino concept, which includes table games (including poker), slot machines, food & beverage, entertainment, hotels and much more.
The distribution channels for our services have also changed over time. From a single land-based source, distribution in some countries has now been extended to the Internet as well as to other multiple technology-based channels. Despite these changes, the ECA members remain committed to the core values associated with the ECA’s identity: representing the interests of Europe’s licenced, land-based casino industry and its portfolio of offline and online gambling and other recreation and leisure services.
Our Code of Conduct serves as a constant reminder of the key requirements set out by the ECA, which its members are required to uphold as a condition of membership.

The Code governs the conduct of all ECA members and seeks to ensure that they champion the ECA’s fundamental values of integrity, professionalism, social responsibility and ambition by observing the principles explained in the ECA Code of Conduct.
