IDVerse’s technology backed by German youth media protection organisation

The Commission for Youth Media Protection (KJM), the central oversight body for youth media protection in Germany, has officially endorsed online age verification solutions provider IDVerse.

The endorsement comes after findings from the Javelin Report discovered that more than 50% of German households do not monitor their children’s online activities, in turn increasing the risk of young people being exposed to age-inappropriate content.

Peter Violaris, head of global content at IDVerse, said: “We are honoured to receive the endorsement of KJM, which validates our unwavering commitment to minor protection and online age verification.

“The alarming statistics on unmonitored online activity among children underscore the critical need for robust solutions.”

BoyleSports gaming director Steve Payne added: “Playson’s variety of engaging slots will undoubtedly resonate across all our markets, and we look forward to a strong relationship moving forward.”

St8.io secures MGA recognition

St8.io’s has been granted a recognition notice by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).

The notice ensures that St8.io boasts the same rights as a standard MGA B2B licence holder, meaning the supplier will be able to provide its platform within the MGA framework.

Vladimir Negine, St8.io CEO, said: “Receiving this approval from the MGA was a key strategic goal for St8.

“This will enable us to provide our platform to operators in MGA-regulated markets worldwide, maintaining the highest levels of player protection along the way.”

SOFTSWISS has allocated funds to deliver essential supplies such as food and gas to those in need in Rio Grande do Sul after Brazil suffered the worst floods in its history.

SOFTSWISS has committed to helping the area recover long term after pledging additional resources to PWTECH for the installation of water purification equipment in schools across impacted areas.
