Also, JeffBet boasts a comprehensive choice of payment methods for customers, including Visa, MasterCard and Maestro plus payment gateways such as PayPal, Neteller and Skrill, Paysafecard, PayviaPhone, BitcoinZondaPay and many more.

New customers can benefit from a range of differing welcome packages across both sports and casino as well as being able to enjoy promotions on a regular basis.

Upon launch, a spokesperson revealed: “We are delighted to see the site go live after so much hard work and we really believe that there is a gap in the market to challenge the big brands and turn this into a show of force.”

He continued: “With many sportsbooks and casinos getting acquired in recent years, there are only a couple of big, standalone brands left in the UK market and this is where we feel that we can make a push and offer our target customers value and quality above anything else.”

Toto Online received a €400,000 fine from the gambling regulator in the Netherlands over breaches related to advertising to young adults.

The Kansspelautoriteit made the ruling after finding TOTO Online’s advertising between October 1, 2021 and February 1, 2022 included people aged 18-23 in its reach, with gambling companies in the Netherlands prohibited from targeting that age group.

TOTO Online did not breach the advertising rule after February 1, 2022.

René Jansen, chairman of the KSA, said that the law covering vulnerable groups, including young adults, “must be given extra protection.”

“Gaming providers must fully respect the rules intended to protect vulnerable groups,” he added.

Endorsement marks out supplier as only esports betting events provider to officially meet new integrity measures

SIS (Sports Information Services), the leading multi-channel supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has been awarded the Esports Integrity Commission’s (ESIC) Gold Standards, the highest possible accreditation from the industry association.

The award sees SIS become the first esports betting events supplier to meet ESIC’s stringent new criteria, created to set unmatched levels of integrity and safety in the esports betting industry, for its Competitive Gaming portfolio (Esoccer, Ebasketball and CS:GO).

The purpose of the ESIC Gold Standard is to build on its existing principles by setting out a list of standards for tournament organisers, ensuring that events are run to the highest level of integrity and safety for the benefit of all stakeholders.

With stringent integrity measures in place, SIS Competitive Gaming follows best practice outlined by ESIC in addition to strict operational measures in place to ensure that each event is fair.

Each SIS Competitive Gaming head-to-head match, all of which take place from within SIS’ UK-based self-contained studios, is streamed live with experienced casters providing live in-game commentary. The streams take place through a secure platform that is exclusive to licensed operator sites where the age of the audience has been verified and is not available on open streaming services, meaning there is less danger of toxic messaging of the sort that is often carried on unlicensed sites.

All events are overseen by a dedicated ESIC-trained integrity referee and have a real-time link to SIS’ expert trading team, which closely monitors betting activity. Rigorous gamer competitiveness and predictability tracking measures are in place, through supremacy and volatility reporting, with all events taking place in a jurisdiction with well-respected legal and employment rights.

The new ESIC Gold Standards have been created to elevate transparency and impartiality, and required SIS to meet a number of rigorous requirements across the board, including:

  • No communication devices allowed anywhere in the gaming studios
  • Minimum of three employed personnel (independent from gamers) watching every event
  • Controlled fixed game settings to ensure fair and competitive play
  • Employees are fully background checked for criminal records, with references taken
  • Ensure all gamers are of sufficient skills and expertise to compete against other pro gamers.
  • ESIC anti-corruption code to be signed by all staff and gamers

SIS continues to work with ESIC to evolve the Gold Standards to improve Integrity and the visibility of clear tangible rules and standards by which tournament organisers should run events.

Adam Conway, Head of Esports & Competitive Gaming at SIS, said: “We are extremely proud to have received this new accreditation, which shines a light on the very high integrity and safety standards we have always put at the core of our Competitive Gaming offering.

“Our operator partners and their customers appreciate our high levels of integrity, such as visible referees invigilating every game, making us the only esports betting events supplier to do so.”

Ian Smith, Commissioner at Esports Integrity Commission, said: “ESIC’s new Gold Standards set heightened levels of integrity and safety in the Esports industry for the benefit of all stakeholders, and through ongoing assessment of SIS’ Competitive Gaming operations, which meet all the key integrity requirements, we are delighted to award SIS with ESIC’s Gold Standards, our highest possible accreditation”.
