GeoComply has confirmed that its IDComply KYC solution has become fully licensed within New Jersey, and has subsequently launched with Amelco and PlayUp within the region.

In addition to the provision of age and identity verification gained through the igaming solution, GeoComply will also be providing Amelco with geolocation compliance for the PlayUp online sports betting platform.

IDComply provides operators with an all-in-one solution that handles KYC and digital identity verification, while looking to deliver the “highest possible levels” of player-acceptance.

“As a technology-first company we wanted to ensure our regulatory approval in New Jersey included the latest offerings from our tech partners and leveraging GeoComply’s IDComply product was central to that process,” commented Dr Laila Mintas, CEO of PlayUp

“With some of the most stringent requirements and rigorous testing of any state, achieving this milestone in New Jersey has positioned PlayUp for continued success as we expand into additional US states. 

“GeoComply’s proven KYC and geolocation compliance solutions along with their experience and expertise has really made a huge impact in being able to quickly scale our business.”

GeoComply also updated that the New Jersey Department of Gaming Enforcement not only requires data verification for KYC but also a secondary form of authentication, either knowledge-based authentication or digital identity authentication, in order to validate an account. 

GeoComply developed IDComply in response to customer requests for an integrated solution that covers more of their compliance requirements beyond geolocation. 

“KYC and geolocation compliance are two cornerstones of the igaming industry and we are very happy to have been able to help operators like PlayUp get their own products licensed,” added Lindsay Slader, managing director of gaming at GeoComply

“The DGE really sets the standard for compliance in the US so getting IDComply licensed in New Jersey is a real achievement for our company. We see stringent compliance controls as critical to the integrity and success of the industry.”
