New Jersey Online Casinos to Use XYVerify for Geo-Location
As operators in New Jersey prepare to launch their first mobile casinos, a deal has been announced with geo-location firm, XYVerify, to provide Atlantic City casinos with their location services.The company has become one of the first services to receive approval from the New Jersey Government ahead of real money mobile casino games launching on November 26th. With so much riding on the launch of online gambling, the state has been taking its time deciding which services it grants approval to.
The gambling laws mean that online casinos are only allowed to provide services to players within the state borders. This means that geo-location companies are absolutely vital to the successful running of an online casino.
XYVerify provides high-accuracy results to determine a player’s location using Cell Tower Triangulation and Assisted-GPS technology. The company is already licensed in Nevada with a Class II license from the Nevada Gaming Control Board and thanks to the New Jersey license XYVerify is likely to start supporting New Jersey gaming operators in the very near future.
