It could be virtual poker, roulette, black jack, casinos or sports betting. Online gaming is growing in popularity around the world.
Now legalised in most of the European Union, some US states, parts of Canada and some small international jurisdictions (like Macau, Gibraltar and Malta), online gambling services face strong age restrictions, with some countries imposing age verification requirements on site entry, account creation or when placing bets.
How can the Age Check Certification Scheme help online gambling services?
We test that age check systems work. We do this through audits, test purchasing and mystery shopping. We can also test your systems to make sure that they are not vulnerable to presentation attack (called 'anti-spoofing') and we can test age verification policies against PAS 1296:2018.
Why do I have to get this done?
Local laws place obligations on gambling services to take steps to prevent the underage access to gambling, free-play and online services. The penalties for failing to comply can be substantial including the forced closure of your business.
Can the Age Check Certification Scheme provide our age verification system?
We don't provide age verification services, but we do certify and check that they work. We recommend that you use members of the Age Verification Providers Association and check that they have PAS 1296:2018 certification, which we can provide.
How do I get my age check systems tested?
If you want a test purchase carrying out at your website, 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.
