Stockholm-listed Unibet has become the first gaming operator to launch BankID, an electronic identification solution used to verify customers by a number of leading Scandinavian financial institutions.

The BankID system has gone live for Swedish customers of the operator's Unibet and Maria Casino sites, offering an efficient identity authentication and verification process.

BankID was launched in 2003 and is now used by more than 6.5m active users and banks such as Svenska Handelsbanken, Swedbank and Ålandsbanke

"By integrating BankID, we continue to show our commitment to innovative solutions by being the first operator in the gambling space to make use of this technology," Unibet head of player safety Daniel Gambin explained.

"As well as improving the customer experience, it adds a great deal of security to the account and together with other electronic verification solutions serves to improve the safety and security of our Swedish customer base," he said.
