Isle of Man – PokerStars partners with Jumio for customer verificationBy Phil - 12 November 2013
PokerStars, the world’s largest poker site, has integrated Jumio’s real-time ID document verification technology into the PokerStars software.
This exciting new feature is now operational in Italy and will be deployed worldwide in coming months.
PokerStars has more than 60m registered members and leads the industry in tournament play, innovation, technology and security. The company’s ongoing commitment to social and corporate responsibility is evidenced by its focus on verifying customer identity and age by working with Jumio, a leading technology provider in this space.
Jumio’s Netverify will enable PokerStars customers to quickly and easily verify their identity by uploading their ID documents or presenting them to their computer webcam for document authentication.
“Jumio offers a new and unique approach in the identity verification market and we are pleased and excited to be working closely with them to help develop and deliver an innovative and exciting customer verification solution. PokerStars’ commitment to safety and security is second to none. This innovative new feature will allow us to provide better and faster service to our customers, while maintaining very high security standards,” said Richard Bregazzi, Senior Verifications Manager at PokerStars.
“When an industry leader such as PokerStars selects Jumio to assist with its customer verification processes, it’s a great endorsement of Jumio’s new approach to the market. Our ID credentials validation service not only provides a great customer experience and helps identify underage players and cybercriminals, but it also helps PokerStars manage the cost and the logistics required to manually verify customer identity documents,” said Bjorn Evers, Director at Jumio.
