On the 22nd of October 2020, MrQ released a new feature allowing players to verify their documents using an automated system called Yoti Doc Scan. Phalanx Software is proud to have developed the API integration allowing MrQ's players to upload their documents for verification.
Gambling regulators around the world are imposing more demanding KYC (Know-your-customer) requirements on online gambling operators to prevent children from accessing gambling products and to protect vulnerable players from playing outside their limits.
For this reason, gambling operators such as online casinos, bookmakers, bingo providers and online poker rooms will require special integrations to KYC providers and other verification services such as Yoti or Experian, among others.
In the past, operators would manually ask players to send over documents through e-mail. This was massively time-consuming and error-prone. However, due to advances in optical character recognition and computer vision algorithms, it is now possible for documents — and even someone's physical identity! — to be verified using a smartphone application.
KYC providers free gambling operators from having to design and implement complex processes to obtain the necessary identification data from players. Furthermore, the verification happens near instantly so that operators may quickly allow newly registered players into their products.
Phalanx Software has the know-how and experience for integrating a KYC provider tool into your gambling system. We can help you when designing and implementing the integration and can guide you through the whole process. For more information about this service, contact us for a free consultation.
