Soft2Bet has teamed up with Onfido, a global identity verification and authentication provider, in a transaction that the former claims would offer it with the technology and experience it requires.
In order to deliver a more seamless user experience for customers while simultaneously minimising fraud, Onfido’s solution employs AI and face biometrics to validate users’ identities.
The integration streamlines know your customer requirements and automates customer onboarding, allowing the casino and sportsbook platform provider to quickly verify the legitimacy of consumers’ genuine identities.
Users just take a selfie with their government-issued ID, which Onfido verifies is real and not forged before matching it to the user’s face. This verifies that the individual presenting the identity is the rightful owner and that they are physically present.
Ed Ackerman, director of alliances and partnerships at Onfido said: “Consumers should no longer have to choose between fast digital onboarding and security.
“In today’s digital age, users should be able to easily prove their real identity while knowing it is secure when applying for online services, which is why we’re pleased to be partnering with Soft2Bet. Delivering access to digital services with safety and user experience at the forefront.”
This comes after Soft2Bet’s casino brand Frumzi gained an MGA licence, allowing it to launch in MGA markets with a variety of slots, live casino, and jackpot games.
Soft2Bet’s CEO, Boris Chaikin, said: “The partnership provides the identity verification technology and expertise Soft2Bet needs to continue delivering an industry-leading offering.
“We have big plans so we are delighted Onfido could help ensure our future success through their ground-breaking fraud detection solution.
“It enables us to automate a great deal of our KYC process and integrating it into our existing technology is proving to be seamless, which makes onboarding much smoother for our customers.”
