Mecca & Grosvenor Casinos partner with Jumio to streamline the customer verification process

London - 5 February 2014

Jumio, Inc., the fast growing online and mobile credentials management company, today announced that The Rank Group Plc, owner of leading entertainment brands Mecca and Grosvenor Casinos, has signed a deal to use Jumio’s Netverify® solution.

The Rank Group Plc is a leading European gaming and betting business, based in the UK and listed on the London Stock Exchange.  Mecca is one of the largest bingo operators with a presence in club, online and on mobile. MeccaBingo.com is one of the UK’s most popular community gaming websites offering popular games like bingo, poker and slot games.  Grosvenor Casinos is the UK’s largest casino brand with nearly 60 casinos across the UK as well as their online operation, GrosvenorCasinos.com.

Jumio’s Netverify® will be integrated into the Mecca and Grosvenor Casinos sites so that players can be quickly verified without having to email or fax copies of their ID documents.  The Netverify® solution will enable Mecca and Grosvenor customers to scan their passport or driving licence via their device camera and Netverify® will then authenticate the document against a range of security features.

“Using Netverify® will streamline our customer experience whilst helping us comply with our Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements.  Using technology to replace manual processes makes the Mecca & Grosvenor experience quicker and more satisfying for our customers” said Chris McKarkiel, Head of Digital Commercial Risk

“We’re seeing more and more gaming clients choose to embrace our computer vision technology, not just to meet compliance requirements, but also to improve the customer experience,” said David Pope, Marketing Director at Jumio. 

“Gaming companies have always been at the forefront of embracing new web technologies and it’s great to see that that the remote gaming industry continues to use technology such as Jumio to set new standards in delivering on its commitment to Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance”, said Clive Hawkswood, CEO at the Remote Gaming Association.
