Kaunas, Lithuania (November 16, 2023) — iDenfy, a global RegTech startup best known for its ID verification and fraud prevention tool hub, announced a new partnership with SoftGenius, a software development company specializing in crafting premier iGaming solutions. iDenfy’s identity verification and AML solutions will assist in the screening and onboarding process of SoftGenius’s expanding customer base.
Know Your Customer (KYC) is a legal requirement in the online entertainment and iGaming sphere for various reasons, including age verification, checking the validity of ID documents, and identifying potential risk factors, such as financial affordability concerns or issues related to gambling. According to iDenfy, online gaming operators and product developers must fill these trust and safety requirements while focusing on user experience and compliance in mind.
iDenfy, a leading name in the RegTech space, emphasizes the significance of online gaming operators and product developers meeting these trust and safety requirements. iDenfy claims that iGaming enterprises and their developers must understand the importance of balancing user experience and regulatory compliance. As claimed by iDenfy, this is extremely important. With the global market for online gaming surging to a staggering $26.14 billion in revenue in 2023, as reported by Statista, the competition has never been more intense.
SoftGenius recognizes that ID verification serves a dual purpose – it’s not just a legal requirement but also an essential instrument for combating fraud and fostering trust, a critical aspect within the realm of iGaming. SoftGenius’ team believes that its product development process always has room for improvement in all aspects, including well-established functionalities and security features, so they wanted to implement a new KYC solution that could add an extra layer of security.
Currently, SoftGenius is working on building a new generation of entertainment and gaming, providing well-executed development services for online casinos and sports betting platforms. With founders and team members boasting over a decade of experience working within and alongside some of the largest iGaming companies globally, they possess a profound understanding of the whole industry.
According to iDenfy, many internal compliance teams and KYC agents constantly face a substantial volume of documents, resulting in drop-offs and a less optimal user experience. For this reason, according to KYC professionals, manual identity verification processes can’t offer the same level of user experience as AI-powered software. SoftGenius agrees with this approach, which made the company initiate a quest for an automated identity verification solution. Their goal is to streamline the verification process and elevate the overall user experience for their clients.
In addition to the ID verification solution, SoftGenius integrated iDenfy’s AML Screening tool. This new tool empowers the software development company to conduct automated Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks, significantly reducing the time spent cross-referencing different databases and lists to verify that the customer poses no risks to the gaming operator. iDenfy’s solution automatically scans Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) lists, sanctions lists, and global watchlists. This proactive approach enables SoftGenius to ensure secure user journeys, minimize risks, and expedite the verification of trusted customers, all without adding unnecessary complications to the KYC process.
It’s worth noting that iDenfy’s ability to deliver transparent and comprehensible information during our initial conversation stage left a strong impression on the SoftGenius team. This was instrumental in deepening the company’s understanding of iDeny’s identity verification and AML Screening tools and how they could enhance its operations. For this reason, the blend of clear communication, alignment with SoftGenius’ budget, and outstanding collaboration made iDenfy the perfect choice for fulfilling its KYC requirements.
“The combination of iDenfy’s ID verification and AML tools is what made a starting point for our automated fraud prevention strategy. We’re excited about this partnership, which helps us enhance security and ensure compliance in the iGaming industry,” — said Kati Holasz, the CTO of SoftGenius.
“Our goal is to help partners take a risk-based approach to fraud management and simultaneously deliver an exceptional customer experience. This is exactly what we’ll be doing together with SoftGenius,” — added Domantas Ciulde, the CEO of iDenfy.

The company has been recognized as a leading identity verification software in G2’s Summer 2023 report. iDenfy has also won the “Enabler of the Year” category at the Lithuanian Fintech 2023 awards.
