Napoleon Sports & Casino, one of the leading gambling operators licensed in Belgium, has joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).
The operator, which runs land-based casinos in Middelkerke, Knokke and Ninove, has offered online sports betting since 2012 and its sportsbook will now join around 50 other licensed retail and online sports betting brands feeding into IBIA’s unique global betting integrity monitoring and alert platform. It continues the ongoing expansion of the world’s largest operator-run sports betting and integrity association, with five new members joining in 2019.
Khalid Ali, CEO of the International Betting Integrity Association, said: “I’m delighted that Napoleon Sports & Casino has joined IBIA, further demonstrating its commitment to protecting the integrity of betting products and sporting events. Regulators are increasingly requiring operators to have robust betting integrity measures in place. IBIA membership ensures that Napoleon Sports & Casino, as with all of our members, is well-placed to meet any integrity requirements in existing and emerging markets, and able to reap the related commercial benefits from those markets.”
Francesco Postiglione, CEO of Napoleon Sports & Casino, said: “We are committed to protecting our consumers and sports from corruption and to ensuring that our sports betting product meets the highest standards of fairness and integrity. IBIA is the global standard-bearer for our sector and is recognised as such by major sports and regulators alike. We look forward to working closely with the association and to continuing to strengthen our internal customer and business protection protocols to identify and punish sports betting corruption.”
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 anti-corruption 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.
