Cyprus – Soft2Bet partners with Onfido to power trusted identity verification for its gaming platformBy Phil - 16 July 2021
Cyprus – Casino and sportsbook platform provider Soft2Bet has partnered with global identity verification and authentication leader, Onfido, to provide secure and simplified identity verification for user onboarding.
Onfido’s award-winning technology uses artificial intelligence (AI) and facial biometrics to verify users’ identities, providing a more convenient user experience for Soft2Bet customers while reducing fraud. The integration automates customer onboarding and streamlines Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements. This enables Soft2bet to validate the authenticity of their customers’ real identity efficiently so users can start using the gaming platform faster.
Users simply take a photo of their government-issued identity document (ID) and a selfie. Onfido first checks that the ID is genuine and not fraudulent, and then matches it to the user’s face. This ensures the person presenting the identity is its legitimate owner and is physically present. Users are able to verify their identity and onboard safely through a simple and user-friendly online experience.
This follows Soft2Bet’s approval for the Malta Gaming Licence for its Frumzi casino, allowing it to launch to customers across MGA markets, with a selection of slots, live casino and jackpot games.
Boris Chaikin, CEO at Soft2Bet 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.”
“Consumers should no longer have to choose between fast digital onboarding and security,” said Ed Ackerman, Director of Alliances and Partnerships at Onfido. “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.”
