Radar, a forerunner in geofencing, has introduced its geo-compliance and fraud detection offering. Known for powering geolocation for esteemed brands such as DICK’s Sporting Goods, T-Mobile, Zillow, and Panera, Radar handles over 100 billion API calls annually from an impressive 100 million devices.
This new addition positions Radar as a potential alternative to the current industry standard, GeoComply, particularly for the gaming sector.
Surge in Online Gambling
The online gambling scene in the US is booming, with powerhouses like FanDuel and DraftKings leading the charge. Despite this growth and competition, there’s a noticeable dependency on GeoComply for geolocation services.
Nick Patrick, Radar’s CEO, commented, “The market needs viable alternative geolocation solutions. Radar, the geofencing industry leader, is here to meet that need.”
Introducing Fraud Detection
Always a pioneer in geofencing, Radar’s platform excels in accurate geolocation features, such as state detection, Bluetooth beacon detection, and place visit detection. This new extension to its services aims to combat location spoofing, VPN and proxy use, screen sharing, and even device tampering.
Designed with developers in mind, Radar’s SDKs are hassle-free, requiring just a few lines of code for integration. Importantly, they have secured an audit clearance from Gaming Labs International (GLI).
The platform’s dashboard is a one-stop solution, encompassing reporting, alerting, and debugging tools. Furthermore, Radar goes beyond just geo-compliance, enhancing services like location-based messaging, address validation, and on-site app experiences.
Ken Wang, co-founder of Sleeper, shared his experience, stating, “We’re really happy we chose Radar as our geofencing provider at Sleeper. The integration with the rest of our tech stack was a breeze, well-documented and easy to follow.”
Radar’s solution stands out as being more budget-friendly than its competitors. Instead of charging based on location pings, the company adopts a pricing model focused on monthly tracked users.
Holding licenses as a gaming vendor in states like Colorado, Arizona, and West Virginia, Radar aims for nationwide licensing by 2024. Given the overwhelming demand, the company has plans to expedite this process.
Currently collaborating with notable names such as Everi, 1/ST, and Sleeper, Radar is gearing up to launch its services with the inaugural sportsbook clientele in the near future.
