company in terms of infra structure and people. Since Acuris acquired C6, for

example, we now have ISO 2700 1 certification relating to data security, a really r obust dat a centre in t wo London locations – mitigating it in terms of failover – and we ha ve added significant head count to our resear ch team to really bolster the data that we endeav our to provide to customer s. I could talk about small pieces of functionality we have added o ver time, but the most significant is pr obably that we were previously a website where y ou would log in then do a search and we had the ability for you to monitor large v olumes of

customers; now our newe st appr oach – and this is aligned to what is going on in the market – is that we hav e more of an integrated approach, so we have a r eally strong API which can push our dat a into the workflow of our cust omer s.

Coming back to the point about a lot of provider s in the AML space that come int o gaming pr ovide their platform that the banks are using, and it’ s confusing for the casino operators because, they’r e not banks and they have to come out of their workflow to use that.

CI: How does money laundering happen specifically in gaming, and why is it such a hot topic now?

We ha v e rly in gaming with our API solution

because we can ping our data into their workflo w and make it more efficient for them to get player s through the door with fewer issues around false positives. That’ s been a r eal area of success for us, aligning with the v ery different individual workflows in the industry.

People working in gaming need a more real-time workflo w , which means specific tools they are alr eady using – and our data tools feeding into that. So that’s a big wa y in which we ha v e changed. But we ha v e done a lot of functional launches, data launches… We a We are in the process of taking data fr om other areas of Acuris and bringing that in to the gaming offering – it is based around wealth, a database that is part of our division called W

In terms of mass market, you have remote operat or s where it is quite easy because your customer s are coming in to a portal and you have to age verify, and hav e to do a sanction check at some point; it’s eas y to manage and automate, and that’s where the API comes in. When you talk about mass market in a land-based casino the challenge s are quite different, and the trend we are seeing is you have t type

The basic tenets of money laundering ar e around placement of funds, then usuall y ther e is some element of layering, and then some e xtraction of funds. A simple example is you walk int o a bookmaker, put £5 00 int o a slot machine, ay

why gambling has always been consider ed a high-risk area, because you put the money in and ar e willing to lose some of it because when you take it out, it’s clean. It’s a w ashing machine with a little shrinkage.

The market for gaming in the UK has opened up and the government has given us the luxury of allowing operator s to come and play in that market. W

We are privileged to ha ve

gaming in our market but there is a pressur e that comes with that, to be responsible for that mark et. Money laundering is important, however, where the activity fr the regulat or is focussed here and in other jurisdictions is more toward responsible gaming. W ith that it’s about ensuring that with the luxury of having a licence, ar e you being responsible with the player that ar e coming on, are you looking after them, are you making sure the y are not spending too much, and making sure what is being spent is not coming from criminality, and that if they ha ve an addiction they are not then moving toward criminality; this is the bigger problem, and it is where r egulators are r eally focussing at the moment. Money laundering is alwa ys important, but responsible gaming is more impor tant and we fit into the middle of all of this. Our information tells our customers triggers to help them make sur e their own customers need to be checked, asked que stions, and more. The bigger the market gets, the more r esponsible that country and regulator needs to be.
