Thanks to the new solution, gaming operators will be able to benefit from 330 different categories and sub-categories. Those options will enable gambling operators to make informed decisions about their growing customer base and at the same time promote safer gambling.

Using TransUnion’s Open Banking for Gaming tool, gaming companies will be able to gain unique insights into a player’s affordability. This is achieved via leveraging consented data which helps filter and categorize players’ affordability.

Such information can include employment data, bank statements, warning flags and other data that can help gaming operators determine the affordability of their players. At the same time, this solution helps with compliance as it also may deliver information regarding the source of funds. The whole process, according to TransUnion, is completed “in a matter of minutes.”

The Solution Helps Operators Make Informed Decisions

The latest announcement comes on the heels of a strategic investment made by TransUnion announced late in January. The company invested in the leading Open Banking and data intelligence firm Bud Financial Limited, in an effort to strengthen its Open Banking offering and boost the growth of its solutions.

We’ve created this new bespoke solution for the gaming sector by drawing on our expertise in affordability assessments.
