IDnow, the Munich-based ID verification platform, will provide Greentube-owned StarGames.de with customer identification and verification solutions for the brand’s entry into the German market. The integration also ensures Stargames.de is compliant with the Interstate Treaty on Gambling 2021 and Anti-Money Laundering laws and regulations.
Greentube-owned StarGames.de is the first from the group to use both the IDnow VideoIdent and the NFC-based eID solutions in order to provide users a freedom of choice when it comes to identity verification. VideoIdent and eID offer state-of-the-art know your customer (KYC) verification services to provide a seamless registration experience for its players, either via an app or web application.
IDnow will enable Greentube (a part of the NOVOMATIC group - a leading provider of premium interactive gaming entertainment) to carry out semi-automated KYC checks on its customers to ensure the integrity of the brand StarGames.de. This places the safety of the players and compliance to laws at the forefront of its operations.
Laszlo Pados, Brand Manager of StarGames.de said: “The German market launch is only a few months away and getting StarGames.de ready and equipped is on the top of our agenda. Implementing the required KYC and AML processes is the basis for safe and secure online gambling and the foundation to our successful German operations.
“IDnow offers a smooth, customer-friendly solution that is fully compliant with German regulations, so it was an easy decision to make when choosing our partner for customer verification solutions.”
Roger Tyrzyk, Director Global Gaming and Sales UK/I, at IDnow, added: “As experts in KYC and AML compliance in Germany, we are uniquely positioned to help launch StarGames.de to the German market. Whilst it is important for us to provide our clients with an outstanding user experience, this integration will ensure Greentube fulfils all the requirements ahead of new legislation in July for its nationwide licence application. Finding the right balance for operators is our sweet spot. We support Greentube to balance those requirements in an efficient and scalable way, while knowing the solutions implemented meet the highest standards in the industry.”
StarGames.de is owned by Greentube Malta, with vast experience operating in the German market through its licensed operations in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein. The operator is now preparing to apply for a nationwide licence in the country as new legislation comes into effect in July 2021. StarGames.de is currently licensed in Schleswig-Holstein, as well as with the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).
IDnow is a leader in digital identity verification with artificial intelligence (AI) trained with millions of data points to securely verify potentially 7 billion customers from 193 different countries.
