New UK Gambling Regulations – Are you ready to lose £29m in revenue due to poor identity verification processes?

Batch Service, Actionable ResultsThe Gambling Commission announced in February new rules which online operators must follow to make gambling safer and fairer.  As the implementation deadline is fast approaching, are you match fit?

The new rules, which follow an open consultation, will ensure operators verify customers’ age and identity details faster which will benefit consumers.

Until now, online gambling businesses have been allowed 72 hours to carry out age verification checks. The operator cannot permit customers to withdraw winnings until age verification has been completed and must return stakes if the person is found to be underage.

The challenge that you will now be facing!

Chances are if you rely on a single provider of identity verification data, you’re going to have significant lost revenue stuck in referral mode because of a ‘no match’ – which means sizeable lost revenue!

In our experience, typical identify verification checks via a single provider result in 30% failure rate.  Usually at this point manual remediation processes kick in but with sizeable failures current processes are likely to sink under the weight!

The average client lifetime value (CLV) of a player is estimated to be £400.  Therefore, if an online operator has a single IDV provider and they onboard 20k players per month it is likely that their existing processes will result in circa £29m of lost revenue per year!
