Luckily fraud isn’t nearly as rife in the online gambling news these days as more companies become fully regulated and fraud prevention measures are put in place and Featurespace hope to help with that in conjunction with Playtech. This and other gambling news for the week follow.
Playtech Partnering with Featurespace to Increase Fraud Prevention
Playtech, a leading internet betting group, has entered into a partnership agreement with Feature space, a leading data analytics specialist, in terms of which it will make use of the group’s fraud prevention product to protect operators from conniving financial predators.
Featurespace’s unique Adaptive Behavioural Analytics approach has been integrated into a series of cutting edge products that deliver results in real-time.
The deal signed by the parties will see Featurespace’s real-time machine learning platform ARIC with its range of risk and fraud management tools, be integrated into Playtech’s player management system.
The tool will alert Playtech if it detects strange betting patterns or other unusual account activity in individual player behavior. Playtech then forwards the information to the operator in order to prevent fraud and other criminal activity, enabling operators to strengthen their risk management and slash fraud losses which will help them to increase revenue.
According to Shimon Akad, COO at Playtech, they are thrilled to be partnering with Featurespace which allows the company to offer their licensees access to an additional sophisticated, best-of-breed fraud prevention solution.
