JCM Global, an Osaka-based firm which supplies cash transaction technologies to the gaming industry, has announced a partnership with Las Vegas-based eConnect to utilize facial recognition technology to enhance casino security.
JCM’s Fuzion management system will be integrated with eConnect’s facial recognition system to provide more visibility into suspicious transactions across the casino floor in an effort to prevent money laundering and other illicit activities.
Jason Cribbs, vice-president of sales for eConnect, commented, “Fuzion’s unique capabilities integrated to eConnect’s best in class facial recognition solution has completely changed the way casino operators can identify, review and reduce money laundering. Suspicious activities are easily discovered by connecting the patron’s face with the alerts from Fuzion.”
Singapore police have busted at least two illegal gambling operations in the past week, while across Asia authorities have moved to stamp out illicit activities, from raids on premier league matches in India, to illegal number forecasting in Malaysia.
