Zeal Network partners with Nect to implement AI age verification

German online lottery provider Zeal Network SE has confirmed it is now using technology company Nect’s Ident; an AI-based verification tool Zeal hopes will work to protect players and their identities.

Ident allows players to quickly identify themselves through the use of an app, providing a selfie video and some form of identification. The process is fully automated, based on AI technology and can work to detect digital manipulation.

Through the implementation of this technology, Zeal can not only verify player ages, but also crack down on fraudulent accounts.

Zeal CEO Helmut Becker said: "As a provider of online lotteries, youth protection is central and omnipresent for us. That's why we place the highest value on using innovative technologies that make the registration process secure and transparent for both sides.

“We are delighted to have Nect at our side, a partner that specialises in developing technical innovations for a secure digital future.”

In addition to improving current levels of player protection, Zeal hopes the integration of the Ident system will provide further benefits by facilitating new customer registrations.

Nect CEO Benny Bennet Jürgens said: "Youth control should be as simple and at the same time as safe as somehow possible. Both sides benefit from AI-based identification: Users can identify themselves independently and within a very short time, and companies can be sure that their new customers are really the people they claim to be.

“We are delighted to partner with Zeal to modernise new customer registration for lottery play."  

Zeal’s product range includes Lotto 6aus49, Spiel 77, Super 6, Eurojackpot and GlücksSpirale.
