LeoVegas has raised the bar in the gambling industry yet again with their innovation and modernization. The mobile gaming giant has launched a registration platform for its users in Sweden which is integrated with the country’s e-identification system called BankID. Now, LeoVegas’ Swedish customers can log in quicker and easier than ever before and withdrawals will be lightning fast – all this in one of the most secure ways possible. This is the first operator in the world to offer a fully integrated identification system without engaging any third parties.

The BankID system was developed about 15 years ago by a few large banks in Sweden as an official e-identification system for use by companies, authorities, and the public. The system is utilized for both electronic identification and also for digital signature. The national and EU laws recognize BankID as a legal identification system and any signature produced via the system is legally binding. The system is available for any Swedish citizen or permanent resident with a valid personal identity number.

With LeoVegas’ registration platform being integrated with BankID, both existing and new users can identify themselves securely over the internet quickly and conveniently. This means that not only logging in to your casino account takes almost no time at all, withdrawal processing can be done within minutes. Where most online casinos will take 24 hours or sometimes even up to days to process a cash out request, LeoVegas allows their Swedish customers to be saved from all these hassles and waiting. This is a huge deal for punters who don’t want to wait long to spend their hard-earned winnings, which is probably all of us.

E Identification

LeoVegas, also known as the King of Mobile Gaming, was established 7 years ago in Sweden. Throughout the years, the company has flourished significantly and is now globally recognized as one of the leading casino brands known for their innovativeness. The company has won multiple prestigious awards every year which is a testament to its continued efforts in not only improving their services but also industry standards. Its Chief Executive Officer, Gustaf Hagman, expressed that the company wishes to continue its path as the world’s leading GameTech company and that he looks forward to initiating similar e-identification platforms in other countries which are integrated with the local systems.

This leads to an interesting outlook on Canada’s future in e-identification. The topic of digital identity has been very much discussed in Canada this year. Both the Digital Identification and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC) and Canadian Bankers Association have published white papers talking about a possible model for digital identity in the country. Perhaps in the future, online punters in Canada can also enjoy the benefits of logging in to their casino accounts with digital identification and long withdrawal processing time will be a thing of the past.
