B. At least every 90 days, the integrity of the geolocation system shall be reviewed by the permit holder to ensure that the system detects and mitigates existing and emerging location fraud risks.

In order to prevent unauthorized placement of an internet sports betting wager by an individual not within the Commonwealth of Virginia, the sports betting platform must utilize a geofencing system to reasonably detect the physical location of an individual attempting to access the sports betting platform and place an internet sports betting wager and to monitor and block unauthorized attempts to place an internet sports betting wager when an individual is not within the permitted boundary.
