By Megha Bhattacharya
SEON today announced that it has partnered with esports betting solutions provider Unikrn in a bid to identify potential bonus abusers as well as users attempting to open multiple accounts. Unikrn expects to boost its fraud prevention operations and allow genuine users to access its platform and help the company comply with the IOM Gambling Supervision Commission’s regulations.
Kirsty Knight, Head of Compliance at Unikrn, said, “Our mission is to always ensure our customers have a safe place in which to enjoy and bet on esports. This partnership with SEON and its innovative fraud prevention offering helps us to keep fraudsters out and provide additional security and protection.”
SEON stated that Unikrn will be integrating its tool via Chrome extension and utilise the company’s Sense platform. The esports betting company will also have access to rich data taken from the email, phone number or IP addresses it gathers from customers, while also collecting all accessible data points about customers’ digital footprints from social media profiles, available via open sources in the public domain.
Tamas Kadar, CEO and Founder at SEON, commented, “Esports is a key sector for us and where we feel we can provide real value in fighting fraud. We’re proud to be partnering with Unikrn and working closely with them to ensure they use our platform to its full potential. We look forward to growing our relationship even more and help each other to improve our offerings.”
Recently, SEON announced a partnership with identity platform DevCode Identity, in a bid to enable the latter to utilise SEON’s fraud prevention solution for helping iGaming companies prevent fraudsters from signing up during the customer onboarding process. DevCode will also have access to data gathered from the email, phone number or IP addresses it gathers from customers and will ensure that its merchants can weed out fraudulent accounts during the onboarding process.
