IDScan.net Goes Global with Gaming

IDScan.net has a new global solution which will change the way the gaming industry operates. The Ultimate Global Solution automates loyalty enrollment and jackpot win entry by populating the information from the ID directly into the CMS. While IDScan.net has deployed this technology in casinos for over a decade, this solution is the first to allow casino operators to populate information from ANY country ID.

This is invaluable for the industry for a number of reasons. Casino personnel no longer have to waste time manually entering ID information and management can be assured that the information is 100% accurate. This is particularly important when issuing jackpot wins. In addition, the solution utilizes IDScan.net’s proprietary parsing engine along with UV and Infrared Technology powered by 3M hardware to provide an  unparalleled level of ID authentication.

For further authentication, casino operators can pair this with IDScan.net’s biometric technology and watch list checks. Gaming personnel can run the ID against internal, national as well as international databases some of which include Self-Exclusion, OFAC and more. IDScan.net has worked with its customers and industry partners to develop a solution that would help slot floor staff increase security while enhancing their operations.

The Ultimate Global Solution is IGT certified and will work with any Casino Management System. Casino operators can purchase it out-of-the-box or utilize it with IDScan.net’s ID scanning SDK for larger scale deployments.

IDScan.net is headquartered in New Orleans and for over 14 years has provided the gaming industry with quality ID scanning solutions that streamline visitor management, automate data capture and authenticate worldwide government-issued IDs.

fraud prevention

Fraudsters are Everywhere, What Can You do?

March was fraud awareness month, but fraud occurs every month of the year. For this reason, I wanted to arm businesses with important statistics about fraud and what actions they can take to stop it. Several industries can see a considerable decrease in fraud by utilizing a “multi-layered” approach. This includes solutions which tier identity verification and identity authentication. Below are some of the ways ID scanning does this:

  • ID Verification: Incorporate ID scanning solutions that ensure that the ID is a valid, government issued ID with correct formatting of barcode features, ID number, etc.
  • ID Validation: Utilize higher level vetting to validate the identity of the individual. This includes running the ID against government databases such as OFAC and many others.
  • ID Authentication: Authenticate the ID with a check ID for proper security features, holograms, etc. to ensure that the ID is not a fake

Did you know?

88.3% of identity fraud is committed using a fake ID. This number is alarmingly high especially when you consider that over the past six years, fraudsters have stolen $112 billion. This comes down to $35,600 stolen per minute. (AmericanBanker.com)

$2.40 is the amount every dollar of fraud cost merchants in 2016, this is up from $2.23 in 2015. (LexisNexis)

Fraud’s percentage of revenues rose from 1.32 percent to 1.47% in 2016. This revenue is extremely high for retailers and continues to be a growing issue for the retail industry.  (LexisNexis)

These statistics are unnerving to say the least. But, as you read, IDScan.net can help. We provide complete solutions with both hardware and software that help users ensure that an ID is properly verified, validated and authenticated.
