Online gaming operator using Jumio’s ID, document verification solutions to streamline previously manual KYC process

London – June 11, 2019 – Jumio, the leading AI-powered trusted identity as a service provider, today announced a partnership with Novibet, an online gaming operator boasting more than 1,800 casino games across web and mobile devices. The partnership enables Novibet to onboard new players faster and more effectively using Jumio’s ID and Document Verification solutions while speeding up eKYC checks and reducing manual reviews.

The global online gambling space is expected to generate revenues of more than $74 billion by 2023. While online gaming is a highly lucrative industry, it’s also highly regulated, which means companies like Novibet need to strike a balance between meeting age verification and other compliance mandates and making it quick, easy and enjoyable for players to participate.

Novibet is committed to preventing underage gambling and is leveraging Jumio to meet strict online age and identity verification mandates recently implemented by the UK Gambling Commission.

In choosing Jumio, Novibet is able to provide its customers with a top-notch onboarding experience, delivered in seconds, while safeguarding the company’s interests. Jumio’s solutions help Novibet determine if ID documents are valid and belong to the appropriate users, and establish proof of address with ease, reducing operational costs associated with manual data extraction.

“Our main point is to provide the best experience for the customer while interacting in the safest e-environment. We are rapidly growing, and are therefore constantly searching to enhance our product’s quality and customer experience,” said Konstantinos Andris, Novibet’s Chief Operations Officer. “We are delighted to announce today our partnership with Jumio. We are absolutely convinced that Jumio’s tried, tested and recognized identity and age verification services will greatly support a seamless onboarding process for new customers.”

“Offering a great gaming experience is essential to keeping your players interested. That experience begins with how a new player creates an online account, and continues whenever they interact with your site,” said Simon Winchester, Jumio’s vice president of EMEA sales. “We’re excited to work with Novibet to help verify the age of their players and simplify the onboarding process while fighting fraud.”
