Locaid Launches First Multi-State Geolocation Compliance API™ For Historic Online Interstate Poker Pact
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Locaid, the world’s largest Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) company, today announced a geolocation and gaming industry first: general availability of a multi-state geolocation compliance API for Delaware and Nevada. The Locaid Compliance API™ allows gaming operators to comply with the landmark Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement signed on February 25 by Gov. Brian Sandoval of Nevada and Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware.
Locaid’s Compliance API was recently named by Casino Journal as one of the publications’ “Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products" for 2013. The Locaid Compliance API provides the online and internet gambling industry with the first multi-state, non-spoofable geolocation API that is compliant with strict state regulatory requirements. The Locaid Compliance API works with Locaid’s massive mobile and connected device reach and accuracy and is currently the preferred location solution for nearly all of the gaming applications approved for wagering in Nevada and Delware.
“Locaid delivers mobile compliance technology that ultimately enabled the first interstate online poker deal in U.S. history,” said Rip Gerber, President and CEO, Locaid. “We have been plumbing the mobile location systems with carriers, operators and regulators for years to reach this landmark accord, and we congratulate Nevada and Delaware in delivering a secure, customer-friendly geolocation compliance approach that can cross state lines. We look forward to working with additional state regulatory teams and gaming operators as they onboard this year. And if New Jersey joins the pact, our location service currently deployed in the Garden State will seamlessly integrate.”
The Locaid Compliance API was specifically built to allow gaming operators to follow strict state regulatory requirements in both wagering and lottery offers via the internet and mobile channels. Locaid understands the regulations that prohibit patrons from accessing mobile gaming from out-of-state or in New Jersey’s case, from parking garages and parking lots, whether or not they are located on the casino’s premises. Gaming industry leaders leveraging Locaid technologies in the gaming and lottery sectors include Cantor Gaming, William Hill, GTECH, 888Holdings, Central Account Management Systems (CAMS), GeoComply and GambleID. Poker apps currently enabled by Locaid include Ultimate Poker and WSOP.com.
