BET99 addition further strengthens global betting integrity body IBIA
Canadian-based online sports betting and casino platform BET99 has joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). It follows the operator’s recent approval by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario and iGaming Ontario to offer online gambling services in the province. BET99 will now feed into IBIA’s global betting integrity monitoring and alert network, joining many of the world’s leading regulated betting operators, with IBIA members accounting for over C$160bn (€115bn) in global betting turnover per annum and nearly 50% of all regulated commercial online betting.
André Bewerungen, Head of Sportsbook for BET99 said: “Joining IBIA, the world’s leading independent integrity monitor, is critical to our sportsbook strategy, in which trust, integrity and protection are prioritized for our Canadian customers. We are delighted to combine forces with IBIA to combat foul play in sports, as well as betting related corruption and manipulation, providing our customers a safe and enjoyable environment.”
Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, said: “IBIA is delighted to welcome BET99 to the association. The move highlights BET99’s commitment to integrity and further cements IBIA as the leading integrity monitor in Ontario, with more than 75% of licensed online betting operators having joined the association. IBIA looks forward to collaborating with BET99 both in Ontario and within the operator’s wider international betting operations to safeguard those markets from fraudulent betting activity.”
The International Betting Integrity Association is the leading global voice on integrity for the licensed betting industry. It is run by operators for operators, protecting its members from corruption through collective action. Its monitoring and alert network is a highly effective anti-corruption tool that detects and reports suspicious activity on its members’ betting markets. The association has longstanding information sharing partnerships with leading sports and gambling regulators to utilise its data and prosecute corruption. It represents the sector at high-level policy discussion forums such as the IOC, UN, Council of Europe and European Commission.
