A group of major online gaming operators is adding anti-fraud and geolocation solutions to its arsenal in GeoComply.
The Québec Online Gaming Coalition (QOGC) is looking to modernize its existing gaming framework as it continues to jostle for market share with Loto-Québec, which currently monopolizes gambling in the province.
The deal, announced at the end of 2023, is another step forward for the coalition, which aims to establish a licensing and taxation system and an autonomous regulatory authority to oversee gaming in the region.
Nathalie Bergeron, spokesperson for the QOGC, said: "We are thrilled to have GeoComply join our efforts to push for a new regulatory and licensing framework in Québec. GeoComply's data will help paint a clear picture of Quebecers' playing habits and provide additional guidance to our mission."
"Their cutting-edge technology can help ensure safer online interactions for operators and users at all stages of the player journey while achieving the highest standards in compliance. We look forward to [working] with them as the Coalition continues its engagement in Québec".
Lindsay Slader, GeoComply SVP of Compliance, said of the partnership: "GeoComply proudly joins the efforts of the coalition to advocate for a modernized online gaming market that maximizes consumer protection, strengthens integrity and delivers meaningful revenues to Quebec. Ontario's success has proven that everyone wins in an open yet regulated market."
