Arbitrage Betting

Arbitrage betting is where you bet against the bookies - try to beat them at their own game. It's complicated, but powered by modern 'market comparison' software, can yield results

Access to this software and the sports betting services that it can offer are strictly age restricted and in some countries banned altogether. 

How can the Age Check Certification Scheme help arbitrage betting software providers?

We test that age check systems work. We do this through audits, test purchasing and mystery shopping. We can test online systems against presentation attack (sometimes called anti-spoofing) or age verification services. We can test your access restrictions against PAS 1296:2018.

Why do I have to get this done?

Local laws may prohibit arbitrage betting, but where it is permitted there are strict obligations on providers to take steps to prevent the underage use of the software. The penalties for failing to comply can be substantial including the forced closure of your business. 

How do I get my age check systems tested?

If you want a test purchase carrying out on your software, you can book this through our shop.

If you’ve got a programme of test purchasing activity that you want to discuss with us, then just get in touch. We can provide discounts for programmes of activity. We would be happy to prepare a bespoke proposal for you or to respond to an invitation to tender.

Our test purchasing and mystery shopping services are available in most of the G20 Group of Nations and the European Union.
