JACK’S Casino & Sports (JACKS.NL), a branded JOI gaming company and a subsidiary of the Netherlands’ largest private gaming operator JVH gaming & entertainment group (JVH), has joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). JVH is a leading gaming operator in the Dutch market with almost 65 years of experience, 85 casinos and a market share of over 30%. The move into online gambling and the inclusion of its JACKS.NL brand to IBIA’s roster brings five of the seven operators currently offering sports betting in the Netherlands within the association.
All online betting operators licensed in the Netherlands are required to be part of an international integrity monitoring body. The majority of those issued with a licence to date are members of IBIA. The association, which has recently launched in the North American market, expects to make further member announcements over the coming months as more licences are issued in Holland and as a similar integrity monitoring requirement is enforced in Ontario and various US states.
Eric Olders, CEO and Chairman of the JVH group: “We are proud to become a member of IBIA. By joining we are protecting the integrity in sports and sports betting. Integrity is a key value, for us and for sports. It’s essential for athletes and essential for our customers. It’s the basis of our ‘licence to operate’. With the help of the IBIA’s data, potential malpractices can be spotted at an early stage, this enables us to act instantly. By joining forces with IBIA we strive for a safe environment for our players, all athletes and sports in general.”
