Award-winning online casino operator Videoslots.com has integrated the electronic identification solution BankID on its Swedish market-facing site.

BankID speeds up the often-time-consuming process of validating and verifying user identities and the integration will allow Videoslots’ Swedish customers to access the site much faster.

BankID was developed by Swedish banks and is one of the leading means of electronic identification in the country, with approximately eight million people regularly using it.

The solution can be used on computers, mobile phones, and tablets and Apple device owners can use Face ID for access.

Alexander Stevendahl, CEO at Videoslots.com, said: “We are thrilled to have teamed up with BankID to offer our Swedish customer base the possibility to access the site with this technology.

“BankID is a well-known and popular tool for identification in Sweden and I am sure that customers will appreciate how it will improve and ease the registration and login process to access our games.”

Along with Global Gaming subsidiary SafeEnt, Videoslots was awarded with a licence from Lotteriinspektionen, the Swedish gambling authority, earlier this month.

The licence was preceded by a voluntary payment of £1 million to the Gambling Commission, the result of an “ongoing investigation into the way the industry combats problem gambling and money laundering”.
