Idea for combatting problem gambling

Come May in the UK players must verify themselves fully before they can deposit. Those on Gamstop or on group exclusions will not be able to circumvent rules.

I will tell you how easy it is to circumvent and get a verified account at the moment. I won't name names but as part of an investigation into several casinos it was found that signing up with an incorrect date of birth and still being able to pass the identity check were widespread even in cases where a passport was sent. It's simply dodgy and the UKGC have taken action recently. 3 big casinos fined and loads more close to the same. Pass marks have to go to MT Securetrade, SkillonNet, Nektan and Cassava. They have what's called "in depth checks" on sign up and they search their databases against many variables and can catch an excluded/Gamstop player easily. You would be amazed at some of the big names who failed hugely, some will not surprise anyone. I'm sure you will read about these soon
