A. A permit holder shall not allow a sports bettor to establish more than one user name or more than one user account per sports betting platform.

B. A permit holder shall take commercially and technologically reasonable measures to verify a sports bettor's identity and shall use such information to enforce the provisions of this section.

C. A permit holder shall implement procedures to terminate all accounts of any sports bettor who establishes or seeks to establish more than one user name or more than one account whether directly or by use of another individual as proxy. Such procedures may allow a sports bettor who establishes or seeks to establish more than one user name or more than one account to retain one account, provided that the permit holder investigates and makes a good faith determination that the sports bettor's conduct was not intended to commit fraud or otherwise evade the requirements of this chapter.

D. A permit holder shall not allow a sports bettor to use a proxy server for the purpose of misrepresenting the sports bettor's location in order to engage in sports betting.

E. A permit holder shall take commercially and technologically reasonable measures to prevent one sports bettor from acting as a proxy for another. Such measures shall include use of geolocation technologies to prevent simultaneous logins to a single account from geographically inconsistent locations.
