1account’s age verification tools now free for affiliates
1account is providing all iGaming affiliates with speedy and efficient age verification tools, completely free of charge during this holiday season!
Whether people are celebrating the end of this horrid year, Hanukkah or Christmas, it’s been a rough year in general, which is why the company is pleased to be offering this solution at no cost. This tool helps get rid of the headache of compliance in regulated markets.
Here’s a quick recap of 2020:
Virtual platforms and digital technology has definitely seen a massive boost this year. Since social distancing and lockdown restrictions have been implemented since March in most territories, physical events and businesses have suffered immensely due to having to close down. Online casino and e-sports revenues have massively increased in popularity and number, while traditional sports betting has been heavily impacted by matches and sports seasons being reduced. Global economies have also been chaotic, especially with Brexit, the election of a new US president and cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin reaching all-time highs.
It’s been a year of significant growth for 1account. The company has formed a number of beneficial partnerships, and has also welcomed many new clients, achieving industry recognition thanks to the SBC award shortlist for Fraud & Compliance Solution of the Year. Everyone is curious to know what lies ahead. Apart from a COVID-19 vaccine, and hopefully the recommencing of travel and in-person meetings, 1account believes that there is a bunch of developments on the horizon that will affect the affiliate business.
The industry is constantly growing, and the increased regulation is unlikely to be too far behind! With debates still ongoing about halting and suppressing problem gambling, affiliates will need to take their role in responsible gambling a lot more seriously. While operators are technically the licence holders, affiliates will need to make sure that they refer players responsibly.
Concerning the USA, Biden’s approach to legalized online betting predicts that it will spread across the country, which provides new opportunities for operators and affiliates in the region. In the meantime, the UKGC says that affiliates should absolutely age verify players before allowing them to even play demo games.
First Look Games’ entirely-integrated demo game server tool includes 1account’s age verification software, so that affiliates are able to operate without worrying, even in highly regulated markets. 1account believes that a secure and responsible gambling industry is a more sustainable one.
