Regulators are pretty strict about verifying the location of players at the time of play. There must be something preventing it. Your best bet is to email customer support.
The email addresses provided for sending in a scan of my government id both bounced back for me .... that was discouraging.
Look, these issues SHOULD be addressed. If the regulatory burden is hurting play and there are less problematic ways to verify location, like using a local wired connection, that should suffice.
The point in this thread is encouraging players to tell the Regulators what is working and what is not, from the legitimate players' perspective ....
Reliance on cell phones seems likely to be a real problem:
(1) Nevadans who are having a lot of difficulty getting verified AND likely will have a lot of difficulty satisfying a "cell phone check" while playing, despite logging in from Nevada on a local internet provider ... Wait until some players, siting at home in Nevada, get booted out of a tournament final table because their phone failed a ping test.
(2) Tourists who want to play, but do not know to bring their cell phone, or have some other non-compliant cell phone provider .... like Vodaphone or 1,000 other non-Nevada providers.
(3) Anyone who has their cellphone inside a place, like many casinos, where the cell service sucks or is even blocked.
