  • Have others ever criticized your gambling?
  • Have you lied, stolen or borrowed just to get money to gamble or pay gambling debts?

  • When STC has doubt about the veracity or the adequacy of the previously-obtained customer information or identification data;
  • When STC becomes aware of customer’s adverse media exposure; and
  • Prior to any “pay-out” / cash out / withdrawal.

Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs)

In addition to performing CDD measures, STC is also required to:

  • Put in place risk management systems to determine whether a customer is a PEP;
  • Obtain Senior Management approval before establishing or continuing such business relationships;
  • Take reasonable measures to establish the source of wealth and the source of funds of customers identified as PEPs; and
  • Conducting enhanced ongoing monitoring on that relationship.

Identity of PEPs may be validated using all known sources of information including third party commercially available CDD tools, such as, but not limited to World Check, and available open sources like Google.

In all instances, approving officers must ensure the KYC process for a specific customer was documented and the required information and documents were complied with.

  1. Minimum Information And Documents Required From Customer/s

Customers shall open and maintain their wagering accounts only if their true and full identity is established. The following minimum information shall be required and confirmed with valid identification documents:

STC shall obtain at the time of customer registration all the minimum information and confirming this information with the valid identification documents hereof before establishing any business relationship.


EDD for high-risk customers is especially critical in understanding their transactions and implementing a suspicious transaction monitoring and reporting system. High-risk customers and their transactions should be reviewed more closely at account registration/onboarding and more frequently throughout the term of their relationship with STC. Although tagged as “high risk”, the Club may still proceed with the onboarding process but will be required to observe the EDD measures throughout the course of its relationship with the client.
