In collaboration with the Spanish federal police force and the central citizen unit, Spanish gambling regulatory authority, DGOJ, has started a new civic awareness campaign aimed at warning the industry stakeholders about the dangers posed by underage gambling and potential sports corruption.

The campaign was titled as “Con el Deporte no se juega” and it warns Spanish leisure and commercial premises of carrying appropriate and thorough underage checks and further duties.

DGOJ, alongside the Spanish police force, has published new information manuals for amateur (semi-pro) sports clubs which sets out to inform stakeholders all about monitoring potential sports corruption and maintaining athlete integrity.

The DGOJ and Police manuals will be distributed by the Central Citizen Unit to all concerned organisations operating across Spain’s seventeen autonomous communities.

The DGOJ details that the campaign marks a new directive for the authority collaborating with national organisations for the “common good of limiting gambling harm and maintain the integrity of all sports.”

IDnow, a leading provider of Identity Verification-as-a-Service solutions with more than 250 customers in Europe, supports the initiative “Wir gegen Corona” with free identity verification.

“Wir gegen Corona” is a Germany-wide initiative that helps people from risk groups to cope with their daily lives in domestic isolation. Voluntary helpers are placed on the Internet platform wirgegencorona.de and via a hotline to take over grocery shopping and other errands. To protect them from possible fraudsters, the identity of the volunteers is currently being checked manually. This can now be automated with the help of IDnow.

In order to enable the organisation to grow fast and to professionally verify ID cards, IDnow will support this process pro bono with its AutoIdent solution based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). AutoIdent is a simple, intuitive product that checks the security features of the badge and matches the ID card image with the corresponding person.

“We are very pleased and proud to support the project Wir gegen Corona. Our product makes a valuable contribution to a great initiative that helps people in need in this difficult situation”, says Andreas Bodczek, CEO of IDnow.

“To ensure that we are able to place trustworthy people, we rely on a clean identity check. Thanks to IDnow, we now have the opportunity to verify the many helpful volunteers quickly, safely and easily. This allows us to effectively prevent fraud while continuing to grow rapidly. We are very happy about the support from IDnow”, says Thorsten Kud, initiator of the platform.

Scientific Games Partners with Abacus Solutions
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Scientific Games Corporation has partnered with Abacus Solutions International Group to develop a platform for shoppers to purchase lottery draw and instant games in retail checkout lanes.

Abacus, which has a significant penetration in supermarkets and big box stores, is a lottery technology partner that securely connects lottery systems technology directly through a retailer’s point-of-sale technology.

“Our research shows that in grocery stores in particular, only 5% of shoppers visit the area of the store where the lottery terminal is located and games can be purchased,” Simon Butler, CEO of Abacus, said.

The integration with the third-party solution from Abacus using their unique Fusion Platform will enable secure, in-lane lottery sales through Scientific Games’ new SCiQ retail technology system and AEGIS lottery draw game systems technology, allowing shoppers to purchase instant and draw games at the checkout.

“This partnership with Abacus is another example of Scientific Games’ commitment to invest in new retail innovation that opens opportunities for lotteries to bring products conveniently to players where they are. Our vision for retail innovation includes third-party, secure technology integrations that support lottery revenues with the most advanced technology possible,” Randall Lex, VP Lottery Retail Solutions for Scientific Games, said.

“The Abacus technology enables draw-based lottery tickets and instant games to be purchased at any retail point-of sale-terminal, and dramatically increases valuable lottery terminal foot-print in stores at a minimal cost. Our partnership with Scientific Games is a significant and exciting step forward, enabling Abacus technology with our retail partners to offer huge growth opportunities for lotteries and their beneficiaries,” Butler said.

“The Abacus and Scientific Games in-lane solution puts lottery products in front of 100% of the store’s customers as well as fitting into their existing shopping behavior. Working together to offer lotteries many more selling opportunities as well as offering new and innovative ways to play is the future of lottery and this partnership embraces that opportunity,” Terry Presta, Abacus Head of Business in the USA, said.
