Another Achievement Unlocked – US Gaming Boards Grant Sports Wagering Licence to Shufti Pro


The global identity verification service provider, Shufti Pro, declared that it has gained two more US gaming board licences. The company offers ID verification solutions to the businesses in the igaming and sports wagering market to validate the identities of players involved in gaming activities in the said states. 

After a thorough analysis, Louisiana Gaming Control Board and West Virginia Lottery Board stated that Shufti Pro’s cutting-edge ID verification solutions are in accordance with both the technical and legal requirements to function in the concerned states. Louisiana Gaming Control Board has allotted a Sports Wagering Service provider Licence to Shufti pro while West Virginia Lottery Board has awarded i-Gaming and Sports Wagering Permanent Licence to the company.

The United States is a significant market when it comes to the gaming industry with more than 214 million Americans playing online games. In a country where 70% of those under 18 years of age play games, age verification solutions are crucial to stop underage gambling.

ID scams and financial crimes such as money laundering and terrorist financing are negatively affecting the sector. The US gaming sector worth $95.45 billion would be exposed to a lot of financial crimes if the gaming businesses do not take the required steps to eliminate identity fraud and financial crimes on their platforms. Shufti Pro’s AI-backed KYC/AML solutions perfectly cater to the IDV needs of the businesses, providing them with state-of-the-art services configurable to global KYC/AML regulations. Biometric authentication and Age verification are some of the popular services of Shufti Pro among its igaming and entertainment clients around the world.

Acquiring these licences displays the dedication of the company toward its aim to make online spaces fraud free. Expressing his views on this step, the CEO of Shufti Pro, Victor Fredung Said; “Shufti Pro is known for its globally configurable IDV solutions. These licences will help us improve our credibility and enhance our customer value.” 

Along with the above-mentioned licences Shufti Pro has vendor registrations, licences, letters of exemption and letters of determination from 11 other gaming boards in the US. Contact the team here to gain more information on these licences.
