Xpoint has become SkillOnNet’s official geolocation technology partner.
Canada.- Geolocation technology company Xpoint has announced that its Xpoint Verify product has gone live in the Ontario market with online casino operator SkillOnNet. Developed for sportsbooks and igaming, Xpoint Verify is a real-money gaming geolocation product. Xpoint, which was founded two years ago, plans to expand to the US.
Marvin Sanderson, CEO and co-founder of Xpoint, said: “For everyone involved with Xpoint, this is a very significant announcement. We founded Xpoint in 2019, then formally launched the business just eight months ago at G2E, and now we have our first product live in-market, with an outstanding partner in SkillOnNet.
“It’s worth noting that this is just the start, the first chapter in our story. In a matter of weeks we’ll also be live in the USA, and then the rollout of both Xpoint Verify and Xpoint Lite, our geolocation product designed and built for daily fantasy sports (DFS) operators, will continue at pace.”
Maor Nutkevitch, senior vice president of corporate development at SkillOnNet, added: “We’re proud to work with Xpoint as our official geolocation technology partner. We were attracted to Xpoint’s technology that helps our consumers engage with our platforms safely and securely, and the fact that our working relationship is rooted in a true partnership.”
In early June, SkillOnNet launched its PlayOjo, SlotsMagic and SpinGenie brands in Ontario. The firm gained three licences from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), covering the SpinGenie and SlotsMagic brands and SkillOnNet. The licences will last one year, expiring on May 1, 2023.
