BET99 has become the latest sportsbook to become a member of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).
The Canadian-based online sports betting and casino platform joins the IBIA shortly after being approved to offer its services in the province of Ontario by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario and iGaming Ontario.
“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,” commented André Bewerungen, Head of Sportsbook for BET99.
“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.”
The IBIA monitors integrity within the licensed betting industry, run by operators for operators, protecting its members from corruption through collective action.
Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, added: “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 association’s monitoring and alert network detects and reports suspicious activity on its members’ betting markets, utilizing information-sharing partnerships with sports and gambling regulators to combat corruption.
Last month, IBIA reported 76 cases of suspicious sports betting for Q3 2022, including eight from the Americas.
