Jumio and Playtech Partner to Enable Remote Onboarding and eKYC for Gaming Operators
The gambling industry’s leading technology company now offers Jumio’s ID and Document Verification solutions to streamline onboarding and eKYC for online operators
Jumio, the leading provider of AI-powered end-to-end identity verification and authentication solutions, today announced a new partnership with Playtech, the gambling industry’s leading technology company. Jumio joins Playtech’s SAAS programme, whereby Playtech’s operators and suppliers across the industry’s most popular product categories, including casino, live casino, sports betting, virtual sports, bingo and poker, are given access to a range of different enabling technologies and services.
Navigating the regulatory landscape is a huge challenge for gambling operators, thanks to increasing regulations across a broader number of geographies. As such, Jumio’s ID Verification and Document Verification solutions are available to Playtech’s ecosystem of operators to support them as they onboard new customers and help comply with emerging regulations across the industry.

With Jumio ID Verification, gambling operators are able to establish the genuine identity of their remote players by verifying government-issued identity documents. Jumio’s advanced technologies detect manipulations of genuine ID images, content (name, address, date of birth, etc.) and face photo replacements.
Jumio Document Verification enables new players to verify their address using their smartphone or webcam, instead of physically visiting a casino. It allows customers to quickly scan documents such as utility bills, credit card statements and bank statements, even if the documents are crumpled or creased.
While ensuring compliance across jurisdictions is vital, it is also important for Playtech’s operators to be able to offer a smooth onboarding process for players amidst growing consumer demand for speed and simplicity. By leveraging informed AI, biometrics, computer vision, machine learning and verification experts, Jumio is able to verify identity credentials issued by over 200 countries and territories in near real-time.

“Jumio is the kind of landmark partner in the compliance space that will really help us further establish our SAAS programme,” said Anthony Evans, VP of Product Strategy at Playtech. “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.”
“We are thrilled to join Playtech’s SAAS programme as a compliance partner,” said Simon Winchester, Jumio VP of EMEA sales. “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.”
