Customer identification cards for sports betting in Austria
100.000 cards issue and delivered to betting offices in Austria.
The challenge: register players at betting offices with ID photo according to a new Austrian law
In Austria, sports’ betting achieves an annual turnover growth of approx. 20%. Since 2016, a new Austrian betting law stipulates that players must register at the betting office with photo ID. CASHPOINT, a European sports betting specialist, wanted a system with which its betting offices can create and print the ID member card autonomously.
The solution: 60+ Avansia systems installed in points of sales
Variuscard, the Evolis partner in Austria, presented Avansia to Cashpoint, which was selected for:
- its reliability,
- its print speed,
- its high print quality.
Cashpoint has installed more than 60 Evolis Avansia systems at its points of sale, which issue coded ID customer cards in just a few minutes.
For security reasons, the customer card is
- pre-personalized by Variuscard with an encoded chip,
- encoded a second time by the staff of the betting offices,
- personalized and printed with the name and the photo of the customer.
The result: 100,000 cards issued and delivered to all offices
The customer immediately receives his personalized customer card which allows him to start his bets a few moments later. Up to the end of 2017, 100,000 customer cards are expected to be issued and delivered to all CASHPOINT offices.
