Friday January 3, 2014 : ONLINE CASINO AUDITING COMPANY CHANGES HANDS
CFG now owned by former computer and casino game math expert Charles Mousseau.
Eliot Jacobson, the trusted and respected owner of online casino auditing company Certified Fair Gambling, is starting 2014 by taking his career in a different direction and selling CFG to a computer and casino gaming math expert like himself.
Explaining his move away from online gambling, Jacobson said Thursday that at present he is mostly involved with game protection for land-based casinos and writing for his popular blog, APHeat.net.
"I believe that CFG has retained its respected position while in my care, but it also has a lot of unrealized growth potential," he said in a statement. "It is time to pass CFG on to someone with the skills, raw intelligence and drive to take CFG to the next level. I conducted a long search for a suitable replacement to lead CFG. I am fortunate to have found an individual who exceeds every hope I had for a successor."
That person is Charles Mousseau, Jacobson reveals:
"I have known Charles since we met as blackjack card counters in Las Vegas in June of 2002. In 2008, Charles gave up a successful career in Computer Science to become an independent consultant specializing in casino game mathematics.
"At present, Charles is the owner/operator of the consulting business Total Gaming Science. Charles has hands-on experience with the mathematical foundations of just about every casino game. He has exceptionally strong knowledge of statistical auditing.
“His broad background in computer programming, advantage play and gaming mathematics allow Charles to look at the nuts and bolts of the software that online casinos use. In short, I doubt there is a person better qualified than Charles Mousseau to take over CFG," Jacobson says in a ringing endorsement of his successor.
There remains a real need for independent oversight and auditing in the online gambling industry, Jacobson says.
"There are still plenty of shady individuals and companies in the world of online gambling. The industry needs independent oversight by a company with no direct ties to any online casinos or casino products," he claims.
Details of the purchase price agreed for CFG were not disclosed.
