ComeOn! is a cutting edge online gaming company that offers casino, betting and poker products around the world. Aware of the need to protect end-users and their brand from fraud, ComeOn! has always used two-factor authentication (2FA) via one-time passcodes (OTP) sent over SMS text message as a way to verify users at account registration. However, increases in fraudulent account activity and the creation of duplicate accounts coupled with SMS delivery issues (messages not being sent) led the company to look for a superior solution provider.
Fraud Targets Gaming Communities
Fraudsters wreak havoc on gaming communities. ComeOn! wanted to catch more fraud and reduce spikes in bonus abuse, where a single user creates several accounts to take advantage of bonus spins, free money bonuses and deposit bonuses. The company was also seeing upticks in customer reported cases of fraudulent activity. They required a solution that enabled them to make instant fraud risk decisions during the account registration process.
SMS Delivery Issues
ComeOn! was also experiencing issues with SMS delivery, which caused frequent customer support calls reporting 2FA codes not reaching the end-user. The sought a global SMS provider that could offer with higher delivery rates.
