Coolbet Joins the International Betting Integrity Association
Coolbet, part of the Vincent Group acquired in 2021 by GAN, a leading North American B2B and B2C internet gambling company, has joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). It follows the operator’s approval by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) to offer online gambling services in the Canadian province. The operator also holds operating licences in Malta, Sweden and Estonia and joins many of the leading regulated sports betting operators in the world, with IBIA members accounting for over C$160bn (€115bn) in global betting turnover per annum and nearly 50% of all regulated commercial online betting.
Endre Nesset, Senior Vice President of Global Sports at GAN Limited said: “We are very pleased to be part of the IBIA. There is strength in numbers and power in unity, and together with the rest of IBIA’s members we are in a great position to help maintain integrity and stop foul play in our industry.”
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 platform is a highly effective anticorruption 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.
