Enterprise-wide risk assessment As part of its risk-based approach, Rainbet.com has conducted an AML “Enterprise-wide risk assessment” (EWRA) to identify and understand risks specific to Rainbet.com and its business lines. The AML risk policy is determined after identifying and documenting the risks inherent to its business lines such as the services the website offers. The Users to whom services are offered, transactions performed by these Users, delivery channels used by the bank, the geographic locations of the bank's operations, customers and transactions and other qualitative and emerging risks.
The identification of AML risk categories is based on Rainbet.com understanding of regulatory requirements, regulatory expectations and industry guidance. Additional safety measures are taken to take care of the additional risks the world wide web brings with it.
The EWRA is yearly reassessed.
Ongoing transaction monitoring AML-Compliance ensures that an “ongoing transaction monitoring” is conducted to detect transactions which are unusual or suspicious compared to the customer profile. This transaction monitoring is conducted on two levels:
- The first Line of Control:
Rainbet.com works solely with trusted Payment Service Providers whom all have effective AML policies in place as to prevent the large majority of suspicious deposits onto Rainbet.com from taking place without proper execution of KYC procedures onto the potential customer.
- The second Line of Control:
Rainbet.com makes its network aware so that any contact with the customer or player or authorized representative must give rise to the exercise of due diligence on transactions on the account concerned. In particular these include:
Requests for the execution of financial transactions on the account; Requests in relation to means of payment or services on the account; Also, the three-step verification with adjusted risk management should provide all necessary information's about all costumers of Rainbet.com at all time.
Also, all transaction must be overseen by employees over watched by the AML compliance officer who is over watched by the general management.
The specific transactions submitted to the customer support manager, possibly through their Compliance Manager must also be subject to due diligence.
Determination of the unusual nature of one or more transactions essentially depends on a subjective assessment, in relation to the knowledge of the customer (KYC), their financial behavior and the transaction counterparty.
These checks will be done by an automated System, while an Employee crosschecks them for additional security.
The transactions observed on customer accounts for which it is difficult to gain a proper understanding of the lawful activities and origin of funds must therefore rapidly be considered atypical (as they are not directly justifiable).
Any Rainbet.com staff member must inform the AML division of any atypical transactions which they observe and cannot attribute to a lawful activity or source of income known of the customer.
- The third Line of Control:
As a last line of defense against AML Rainbet.com will do manually checks on all suspicious and higher risk users in order to fully prevent money laundering.
If fraud or Money Laundering is found the authorities will be informed.
