Revenue loss

Operators pay a high price for identity fraud, whether from chargebacks, bonus abuses or wasting time chasing bad players.

Compliance issues

Regulators are getting stricter with online gambling websites. Failure to catch fraud or self-excluded players will result in massive fines and legal issues.

Poor reputation with payment processors

Payment processors may charge higher fees, impose stricter rules, or even terminate the business’s account if the chargeback rate is too high. Failure to keep chargeback rates low can seriously hurt online gambling operators as players won’t be able to use their preferred method of choice to make deposits.

Reduced customer satisfaction

If an operator does not solve fraud issues from legitimate players, they will lose trust in the company or switch to a rival. This is especially relevant for multiplayer game websites, like online poker, which can see the active users drop if they don’t control fraud at the table.​

Waste of resources

Identity fraud causes more harm than just financial damage. Fraudsters take a lot of time from the teams who have to track them down and improve risk management.

Overload in customer support

Fraudsters disrupt online gambling business operations, which leads to customer service issues.

Account hijacking

Ensuring an individual’s identification when logging into an account prevents fraudsters from taking over an account when they get over the holder’s login credentials.

Bonus abuse

Fraudsters create many accounts with fake information to take advantage of new signups rewards and other deals. These incentives are a good way to draw new customers, but can also attract fraudsters who abuse them, which can hurt your business by losing too much money.

Money laundering

Criminals sometimes use online gambling platforms to launder illegal funds by disguising the original source.
