Online casino operator Videoslots, having detailed the adoption of the Freja eID tool across the Nordics, has “underlined its commitment to safer gambling.”
It was commented in a media release that the Freja eID app “goes beyond all the legal verification requirements of gambling brands in the region while also making the sign-up process much easier for new players thanks to a completely digital procedure”.
In addition to checking the age and location of a player, the app handles other sensitive operator data and provides players with a complete overview of what’s being stored, as well as their own detailed user history.
Johan Henrikson, CEO of Verisec noted: “The agreement with Videoslots in the Nordics shows Freja eID can be the iGaming industry’s key to fast customer on-boarding, KYC, payments, increased customer interaction and global scalability.
“An e-ID is about much more than meeting regulatory requirements. It’s about the user experience and customer loyalty which is becoming increasingly important in a digitalised world.”
Last month Videoslots became the latest company to triumph in a battle to secure a Swedish licence for a maximum period of five years, after a two-year green light was first awarded by regulator Spelinspektionen.
Overturned by the Linköping Administrative Court, the decision was made to issue a shorter licence because the firm was subject to “penalties for its gaming operations in the UK”.
Ulle Skottling, COO at Videoslots.com, said of the new link-up: “We believe gambling should be safe and simple as well as fun. Freja eID will help us ensure we protect players and respect their data both on sign-up and while they enjoy our casino.
“We invest a lot of time and resources into ensuring we not only comply with regulatory requirements but surpass them and this new tool will be implemented in order to attain the highest standards.”
