London-listed gaming operator and supplier Playtech has integrated Jumio’s ID and document verification solutions onto its platform.

Jumio’s verification solution enables Playtech’s operator partners to establish the identity of their remote players by verifying government-issued identity documents in real-time.

“Jumio is the kind of landmark partner in the compliance space that will really help us further establish our SAAS programme,” said Playtech vice president of product strategy Anthony Evans. “The quality of Jumio’s product, ease of integration and breadth of functionality was important for us, but the flexibility and coverage of the offering means Jumio is able to support many of our different customers in their compliance journeys across jurisdictions.”

Jumio vice president of Europe, the Middle East and Africa sales Simon Winchester said: “We are thrilled to join Playtech’s SAAS programme as a compliance partner. As a result of our advanced risk scoring, we have been able to identify patterns and probabilities of fraud based on a combination of high-risk profiles, while streamlining the onboarding experience of legitimate players.

“It’s our ability to uniquely balance fraud detection, compliance mandates, and the user experience that will prove invaluable to Playtech’s ecosystem of operators looking for ways to adapt in this rapidly evolving landscape.”

Shares in Playtech plc. (LSE:PTEC) were trading up 1.28 per cent  in London earlier Wednesday at 213.30 pence per share.
