Oddin.gg Joins IBIA
Betting on esports is becoming more and more popular as the field of electronic sports grows further. Oddin.gg is one of the leading names in the sphere with the provider seeing a lot of development in the last couple of years. The latest big step in its growth was announced recently, as Oddin.gg has become a member of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).
The IBIA was founded in 2005 as a not-for-profit organization that aims to protect the integrity of sporting events and the businesses of its members. Their Monitoring & Alert Platform is a “highly effective anti-corruption tool designed to detect and report suspicious betting activity using detailed consumer data,” according to the organization. Its members follow a code of conduct that ensures they perform responsible betting practices in their respective markets.
IBIA’s activities have been instrumental in finding or preventing suspicious betting activities online. In 2022, the organization reported a total of 268 suspicious betting alerts to the authorities, which has resulted in 15 sporting or criminal sanctions against teams, officials, and individual players.
What This Deal Means for Oddin.gg?
Entering a collaboration with the IBIA signifies the large growth that Oddin.gg has achieved over the past couple of years. Now the two parties will work together to ensure the high standards of betting integrity are maintained across the provider’s esports betting products.
Joining IBIA coincides with several expansions that Oddin.gg has announced recently. One of these is a venture into the North American market and it’s reported that the operator is currently “seeking additional licenses in the US” after securing licenses in New Jersey, Colorado, and Ontario.
Another one of Oddin.gg’s recent expansions is their collaboration with Gamdom, which was announced just a couple of weeks ago. That deal will see Oddin.gg offer its portfolio of services to the prominent crypto casino.
Back to the partnership with IBIA, the CEO of Oddin.gg, Vlastimil Venclik, reaffirmed that the collaboration is a significant milestone in the development of the betting operator. As we expand our operations in key markets like the United States, being part of IBIA’s robust monitoring network will enhance our capabilities in safeguarding the integrity of our esports betting products,” Venclik explained. “This collaboration underscores our dedication to providing a safe and fair betting environment for our partners and their customers.”
