Access to online casinos by underage gamblers is a worrying issue for the online casino industry and lawmakers alike. The intense opposition to online gambling comes from the fact that there are some online casinos that do not have systems in place required to prevent underage gamblers coming on board. There have also been doubts expressed over some of the systems being used to prevent underage online gambling.
Aristotle International has introduced services that adequately seem to address this issue. The company has also recently appointed Bolcerek as Senior Vice President of Business Development. Bolcerek, who earlier worked with the Poker Players Alliance, said, "The biggest issues that I faced in trying to achieve success at the Poker Players Alliance were two: Kids accessing on-line poker sites, and problem gambling. Aristotle addresses both issues with services that are now used by leading online poker sites both in the US and in Europe." Bolcerek added that his mission and that of Aristotle was the same.
Through its "Integrity" suite of solutions, Aristotle International provides comprehensive age verification systems that actually work and can be used by adult Web sites for blocking underage individuals. These are ideal for online casinos. One of the advantages of Integrity is that its systems are non-invasive and they protect the information about consumers accessed in the identification process from being spread or misused. Thus Integrity keeps out underage gamblers and yet secures the confidentiality of legitimate gamblers.
Integrity used government issued IDs for age verification and produces instant results. Its service is compatible with several platforms that include online, interactive voice response, wireless and other mobile devices. This is a great advantage because casinos are also now working though different platforms. Mobile casino games are already very popular. The backbone of Integrity solutions is Aristotle Internationals comprehensive COSMOS database of government-issued IDs and other data sources This database includes information on citizens of 157 countries. This vast database makes Integrity both versatile and cost effective.
Though the main thrust of Integrity is age verification, online casinos are able to use it to address some of their other issues as well. One such issue is prevention of fraudulent activity like money laundering. In fact the UIGEA that is causing so much trouble in the United States has its origin in preventing terrorist organizations from using laundered funds. Another application that Integrity can serve is the identification and control of problem gambling.
Integrity has a wide range of solutions each tailor made for a specific kind of need. Merchants like online casinos use it to check underage gambling and identity fraud whereas government agencies use it to for getting verifiable value-added identification services. Fortune 1000 companies, government agencies and online merchants have used Integrity to verify the identity of more than 50 million consumers.
