With an average growth rate of users standing at 50%, skill-based gaming is a huge market in India, but it is laced with challenges. Involvement of great amounts of money in the background of lack of clear regulation makes this industry a breeding ground for frauds and misuse in India. But the silver lining for some of the top players is that they can lead by example in this emerging market by tackling these challenges head on.
When they met us, our clients, a group of companies operational in a variety of online games such as poker and cricket fantasy games since 2014, had a clear agenda – they wanted a solution focused on removing three major hurdles. With their registered user base growing to over 1 million, they had recognized these three challenges as major road blockers to their growth ahead and to that of the whole gaming industry in India.
Our mandate with the client
Verifying the address of the user
Verifying bank account details
Step 1: Identity Verification
The process starts with the user submitting an ID. Our OCR technology enabled with document classification and document tampering detection then extracts, auto-populate and validate player data from submitted IDs instantly. Users who are 18 years and above and have a valid ID can proceed, others are barred from the accessing the platform.
Step 2: Validating State of Residence
The users with an NID from a state where skill-based gaming is banned are restricted from proceeding further.
Step 3: Bank Account Verification
Via Penny Drop method, the bank account number is cross-verified to ensure that the amount won is transferred to a genuine, user account and not used for the purpose of money-laundering.
The AuthBridge Advantage
When results drawn from checks performed on hosts and property were consistent with the information supplied by a host, we generated a Green report meaning our client could sign up the host without any worries. A Red report flagged any objectionable information discovered about a host, meaning a host was a no-go from as per our investigation and our client would be best advised not to onboard them. If the results varied, were inconclusive or confusing, we would generate an Orange report, meaning further investigation into the profile of the host would be needed. We also aided our clients in carrying out the additional verification as per their request in a few Orange cases. This included verification of social IDs amongst other measures.
