Pinnacle has partnered up with Sumsub, an identity verification platform that covers KYC/KYB/AML needs. Sumsub will ensure a simpler and faster onboarding flow for Pinnacle’s users. On top of that, the KYC & AML provider will help Pinnacle protect their users from unnecessary gambling risks and become even more socially responsible. The betting company will also get all of the necessary tools for payment fraud prevention and smarter risk management.
Pinnacle is a leading online betting platform with headquarters in Curaçao. In addition to sports and esports betting, the company also offers online casino services and has been in the business for over 20 years. Pinnacle is considered one of the most trustworthy sportsbooks in the industry, given its high security standards, which are similar to that of major financial institutions.
Sumsub has empowered Pinnacle with robust verification tools, such as biometric checks and AML screening. Also, the KYC provider has ensured accurate source of funds verification so that Pinnacle’s customers do not spend more than they can afford. This will help the betting platform to comply with responsible gambling requirements. Sumsub has also provided Pinnacle with legitimate chargeback protection mechanisms.
Veronique dos Reis, Legal, Compliance and Regulatory Affairs Manager at Pinnacle, said: “The integrity and efficiency of our platform is a part of our success. So, to keep our operational levels high, we needed a solution that could accelerate compliance processes and level-up security. Sumsub’s solution was a great choice for us. We have accelerated the verification of clients, source of funds verification, and have enabled the detection of false chargebacks. It was a great leap forward in terms of the internal organisation of our compliance processes. Overall, we are providing a better onboarding experience for the members of our betting community.”
Jacob Sever, co-founder of Sumsub added: “Betting companies have to stay compliant with both AML and responsible gambling requirements, which is not an easy task. We are glad to be utilizing our expertise in order to help Pinnacle to become more socially responsible and protect their customers from any possible gaming-related issues.”
