LocationSmart: Helping Gaming Operators Transition to Virtual Gaming via Location-as-a-Service

COVID-19 has had a massive impact on the entire world. No industry has been left untouched. Restaurants and entertainment venues have struggled while essential retail services find it a challenge to keep inventory and keep shoppers safe. Some industries have turned entirely to remote work and off-site functions in order to stay afloat while keeping person to person contact at a minimum.

The Impact of Coronavirus on the Gaming Industry and How LocationSmart Can Help

It has been a rough few months for people, businesses, industries, and governments around the globe. COVID-19 has brought the world to its knees, causing the close of businesses everywhere – including casinos and other businesses related to the gaming industry. Fortunately, people can still enjoy their gaming experience, including online casinos and sports betting, without having to physically go to a casino. However, one of the biggest concerns for many countries and states that are charged with regulating the industry is access control.

How LocationSmart Is Shielding Gaming Operators from Coronavirus Financial Damage

Online gaming poses a unique challenge to the companies that offer it. There are very strict regulations that restrict online gaming to specific regions, states, or countries. This means that people located outside the areas in which online gaming is legal are not permitted to play. The challenge is how to know where your gaming customers are located, so that you can control their access based on whether they are within the jurisdictional boundaries. This is the only way application developers can ensure full compliance and gaming verification for their companies.
