London – 10/08/2020 – Reflex Gaming has integrated digital age verification technology from Yoti into its category C gaming machines for automated proof of age – protecting children while delivering a seamless gaming experience for adults.

Established in 2004, Reflex is an independently-owned manufacturer and game developer with a significant and growing market share in the Pub Retail machine market and the Arcade, Bingo and Private Members Club sectors. Reflex has recently taken its land-based games to the global online and mobile markets, which will be enhanced by Yoti’s digital age and identity offering. 

The combination of Reflex and Yoti digital IDs brings a powerful integrated solution that helps people prove their age in two secure, privacy-preserving ways:

  1. Real-time age estimation sees people prove their age by looking into the camera on the terminal to pass a threshold set, such as challenge 25. Once the age is estimated, the scan is deleted and there is no data held.
  2. Scan a QR code on the machine to verify their age in seconds with the free Yoti app, sharing their age (verified from a government ID) and no other personal data. The app is also accepted at over 12,000 UK stores, online and more.

 

Both solutions are contactless to support social distancing, enabling people to access games without the need for staff intervention. It’s a win/win for operators like publicans and their customers that demand fast and simple access. Regulators can also be confident that age checks are being carried out to a high standard with both solutions tackling the rise of high-quality fake IDs, which puts increased pressure on business and their staff.

Mat Ingram, Reflex Gaming CPO said, “We’re delighted to be working with Yoti who are a skilled, enthusiastic and agile company, just like Reflex. The solution is robust, bleeding-edge technology and marries very well with the cashless play solution that we are also using, the latter provided by Game Payment Technology. Having great technologies working well together is exactly what Reflex are all about and we look forward to rolling it all out in significant numbers.”

Yoti is the world’s leading identity platform, it brings ID and age verification through the free Yoti app and integrated solutions, as well as AI-powered age estimation technology, Yoti Age Scan. Yoti accepts government-approved ID documents from over 195 countries and helps individuals and organisations know who they’re really dealing with. It meets SOC2 standards for secure data management. 

Robin Tombs, Yoti CEO said, “Our partnership with Reflex Gaming is making life easier for adults while preventing children from gaming. Yoti’s tried and tested age verification technology is unrivalled and makes it safer for people to prove their age while protecting businesses, their staff and customers.”
