HooYu selected to power customer sign-up and KYC journey for young & global esports customer demographic   

Leading KYC and customer onboarding specialist, HooYu, today announced a partnership with esports betting operator, Midnite, to power their customer sign-up and KYC processes.

Midnite is a UK Gambling Commission regulated esports betting operator that enables customers to watch and bet on the latest CSGO, Dota 2, and LOL matches and tournaments.

Whilst esports betting has enjoyed a meteoric 2,922% rise in GGY from March 2019 to March 2020[1], its younger and more geographically diverse customer base brings with it challenges to be able to quickly and smoothly check customer age and identity before gambling can take place.

As a new gaming operator designing its platform from the ground up, Midnite selected HooYu to provide a range of database check, ID document validation, facial biometric and identity confidence scoring technology.  As well as orchestrating the KYC technology behind the scenes, HooYu also embeds UI and UX tools in the Midnite sign-up process to guide users through the sign-up process and maximise customer acquisition success rates.

“Our partnership with HooYu has enabled us to rapidly expand our growth operations while maintaining the highest levels of integrity”, said Sujoy Roy, Marketing Director for Midnite. “As an esports bookmaker, our registration process must be fast and accurate to satisfy the demands of our gaming audience. The new KYC integration with HooYu has allowed us to begin acquiring customers outside of the UK, while maintaining the same quality of customer experience we are known for.”

Ian Smith, Commissioner at the Esports Integrity Commission said, “Esports is the fastest growing part of the egaming industry in these challenging times and it’s great to see regulated operators like Midnite ensuring safe and fair esports betting experiences instead of users going to unregulated offshore sites.”

David Pope, Marketing Director at HooYu said, “With a younger and more geographically diverse esports demographic, the HooYu digital KYC journey is ideal.  Younger, digitally savvy users are whisked through the HooYu journey and our language detection tools automatically serve the HooYu UI in the default language making is easier for users to understand what they need to do pass KYC and bet on their favourite game.”

The global sports betting industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace. As the pastime gets more and more popular with users, it is also becoming more diversified. One of the niche markets that has seen even more rapid and significant growth is esports betting, which offers a potentially large, mostly untapped source of revenue for operators. As esports betting continues to become more widespread, Oddin.gg, the leading esports betting solutions provider, has been selected by sports betting and platform provider Novusbet to help the latter expand its portfolio.

Novusbet operates primarily in Latin America and Africa, where the majority of its clients are located. Going forward, those clients will gain access to Oddin.gg’s unique and innovative iFrame esports betting solution. This will allow them to target esports bettors throughout their operational areas, reaching tens of millions of potential new customers.

Oddin.gg co-founder and Managing Director Marek Suchar remarked, “This new relationship with Novusbet is the culmination of hard work on the part of both companies, as well as the recognition of the important role esports betting will play in the larger sports betting ecosystem. We are thrilled to be able to count on this new partnership to extend our reach and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”

Novusbet will implement Oddin.gg’s iFrame at the beginning of 2022. This will give all their clients access to tournaments and events for titles like CS:GO, Dota 2, and League of Legends, already household names in the fast-growing industry.

Simone Suppa, Novusbet Operations Manager added, “Oddin.gg’s esports betting solutions stand apart in a market that is seeing greater competition. We are excited to be able to launch their iFrame for our clients, who will benefit from the innovation and advanced technology that Oddin.gg continues to bring to the esports space.”

The esports ecosystem has been rapidly evolving over the past decade with explosive growth over the past two years. Esports betting is changing to reflect the developments. Many traditional sportsbooks around the world have embraced esports betting as a core component of their betting markets, poised to tap into a source of revenue that is expected to reach $13 billion by 2025.
