Online poker websites in the state of Nevada have thirty days after a player registers to collect identification information about the player. This famous policy is known as Know Your Customer and it can be quite a huge problem for gambling sites because the lack of appropriate tools to properly check the KYC activities of those people. Now due to Players Verify’s license the Nevada online poker service provider license KYC will become simple and the information that is gathered will be accurate for the Nevada poker companies.

The main concern for those that operate the site is that Nevada’s legal requirement is that all personal information shared with I-gaming is encrypted. With email a great amount of security is not possible because many offshore I-gaming sites request personal identification and verification. Now due to Player Verify the Nevada online poker websites will be able to bridge the gap.

Player Verify was launched in 2012 and has rapidly become the primary player verification and self-exclusion service for I-gaming websites and players. This method is known to be one of the safest ways of the poker players to share their personal information which may be their driver’s license, passport information, and proof of address with the I-gaming websites. Now the verification of United States players through Player Verify has become even stricter.

Player Verify also presents a centralized location for problem gamblers to self-exclude online. The Player Verify database is accessible for I-gaming sites to monitor in real time, so is the company’s real time fraud reporting database that is shared by many I-gaming websites.

 “Nevada online poker sites know they have to follow KYC rules, and they do the best they can with the tools they have available,” said Player Verify administration member Mark Dalton. “Now that our online poker service provider license is pending with the Nevada Gaming Control Board, Player Verify is ready to give Nevada I-gaming sites a better, safer option for player verification.”

The Nevada I-gaming companies that decide to use Player Verify’s authentication will have to authenticate player identity right away. The tru.ly-powered Player Verify Identity Checker tool goes with the information that is submitted by United States players to a nationwide database of government and also public information. If the information that is submitted matches up with the information in the database then the player will be verified. This system has been created to remove scammers and to trash information that indicates any type of fraud.

 “Player Verify exists to streamline player verification and safeguard players’ identities during the KYC process,” says Mark Dalton. “We look forward to working with Nevada online poker sites to help them better meet the requirements of Nevada online gaming laws. We encourage online poker sites based in Nevada to contact us to learn how instant player verification can help their businesses.”
