Sports betting technologies and services provider Kambi has become the latest to join the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).
The affiliate membership will also cover IBIA member brands using the Kambi sportsbook, which currently includes Unibet, 32Red, LeoVegas, 888sport, and ATG.
“We are proud to be joining IBIA, an organization which shares our focus on protecting the integrity of global sport and shielding bettors from the danger of wagering on potentially manipulated events,” Kambi’s head of sportsbook controller, Oliver Lamb, said.
“Sports betting integrity and commercial probity are at the core of Kambi’s business model, and have been central to our success in regulated markets all over the world.”
IBIA chief executive Khalid Ali added: “We are adding another key player to our global network, further enhancing our sophisticated monitoring and safeguarding capabilities, which are unparalleled in spotting the signs of betting-related corruption.
“Kambi’s valuable data will undoubtedly serve to strengthen our consumer, business and sports protection capabilities and its membership further cements IBIA’s position as the leading global voice on betting integrity.”
The International Betting Integrity Association reported at least 50 cases of suspicious betting in the third quarter of 2019 to September 30. The association has identified and reported 138 cases so far this year.
With 30 cases reported related to betting on Tennis, 15 cases were reported from football games. The majority of the alerts in Q3 came from Europe and Asia. While Europe accounted for 42 percent of the suspicious bets reported, 36 percent were reported from Asia.
