The Belgian gaming software provider Gaming1 has joined the International Betting Integrity Association.
Belgium.- Casino and sports betting software provider Gaming1 has signed up to become the latest member of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).
Its brands, including Circus and Zamba, will feed into IBIA’s global monitoring and alert platform, which aims to flag suspicious betting. The IBIA saw a 48 per cent increase in suspicious betting reports in 2020.
Gaming1 is part of the Argent Group. It has offices in Brussels and Malta and has operations in Europe and the US.
Co-founder and chief operating officer Sylvain Boniver said: “We believe that it is vital that betting operators work together to harness their unique market data and intelligence gathering capabilities to meet the concerns of regulators and to protect consumers and sports from corruption.”
The Brussels-based IBIA says its members now account for 50 per cent of regulated commercial online betting, representing €115bn in annual global betting turnover.
IBIA chief executive Khalid Ali said: “I’m very pleased to welcome another leading name in the regulated betting sector into our association, further strengthening IBIA’s position as the largest customer transaction-based integrity monitoring system in the world.
“The inclusion of Gaming1’s diverse range of sports betting brands significantly enhances our monitoring capabilities.”
