Solus Solution Provides the Most Comprehensive, Cutting-Edge GeoLocation Technology for the Daily Fantasy Sports Industry

BOSTON, Mass., November 20, 2015 – DraftKings Inc., a leading destination for daily fantasy sports (DFS), today announced that the Company has partnered with GeoComply to employ its global market-leading Solus geolocation technology. This new suite of services provides best-in-class, innovative geolocation and anti-fraud solutions designed specifically for the DFS market.

GeoComply’s geolocation services are designed to verify player eligibility for the DraftKings site, based on the player’s current location, accurate to within 50 yards in most cases. Common methods used to circumvent location checks such as proxies are restricted and will invalidate a player’s eligibility. Solus is a low-profile tool designed to provide the best available defense against proxies, while minimizing any impact for DraftKings users within allowed locations.

“We are committed to the integrity of our product, which is why we are partnering with GeoComply to leverage their industry-leading geolocation compliance solution,” said DraftKings COO Paul Liberman. “The introduction of this new service is part of our ongoing efforts to ensure that we continue to meet and exceed the increasing demands within the DFS industry, while also continuing to innovate.” “

DraftKings has been an innovative leader in the DFS industry and we’re proud to offer our services on their site and to their players,” said Anna Sainsbury, CEO of GeoComply USA. “DraftKings is the ideal partner to help take our Solus solution to a new level of engagement and further enhance its consumer protection services via our adaptive technologies.”
