Players from Ukraine can now log in to the SlotsCity online casino using digital documents from Diia state app for digtal IDs. Thus it is the first legal online casino in Ukraine to offer player’s authorization using digital documents. The online casino SlotsCity.ua is part of the international holding Storm International, which also owns a network of slots halls Slots City and the Shangri La casino in the Fairmont Grand Hotel in Kiev.
The law on the gambling provides a list of requirements for players who are allowed in the casino. Among these requirements are age 21+, no debt, alimony paid, etc. The operators themselves, both land-based and on online, must register the player and check if their name is not in the register of persons who are prohibited from gambling.
Until now, the registration and verification procedure required the user to present documents directly at the land-based casino (for example, a passport of a citizen of Ukraine). When registering in an online casino, you had to upload scanned copies of documents to the site. SlotsCity was the first online casino to introduce authorization of its users using via Diia application digital ID’s, which is already used by millions of Ukrainians, almost a quarter of Ukraine’s population, according to the recent comment of the Ministry of Digital Tranformation.
