GeoComply will help A5 Labs and WPT Global identify and prevent cheating as well as fraud.

California-based games and platform provider, A5 Labs, has picked GeoComply to support its online poker operator, WPT Global, with fraud and risk prevention during the company’s expansion. GeoComply will supply its suite of programs, which protects user data in over 85 countries.  

WPT Global, which touts itself as the home of the World Poker Tour, launched an online poker site in May 2022. It is available worldwide in over 50 countries. The site has more than 15,000 average daily active users.

A5 Labs Head of Security, John Andress, commented, “Fraudsters and cheats have targeted online poker from the very beginning. As our customer WPT Global embarks on a new journey, we were determined to invest in the tools needed to stay ahead of increasingly sophisticated criminals.

“Investing in GeoComply’s market-leading technology will keep us one step ahead of the cheats no matter where they are based.”

A5 Labs, technology partner of WPT Global, has aimed to create a trusted site for poker and to stop cheating from happening within its games. The company has invested in machine learning and data science and has now also turned to GeoComply for assistance with fraud and potential bots.

GeoComply’s tools prevent users in blocked regions from joining games based on compliance-grade geolocation.

VP of Sales and Customer Experience for GeoComply, Mark Blunden, said, “We are delighted to support and protect A5 Labs as it rolls out its operations around the world.

“Our technology has been road tested in North America’s highly regulated markets and will provide A5 Labs with the protection it needs across the globe.”
