The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) reported 270 cases of suspicious betting to the relevant authorities during 2020, with 68 of those cases reported in the final quarter (Q4). The 2020 total is a 48% increase in alerts compared to the 183 cases reported in 2019, with table tennis and eSports accounting for much of that. Tennis (98) and football (61) saw the largest number of alerts with 59% of the total, albeit a fall from 82% in 2019.

Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, said: “2020 was a turbulent year for many sectors including the betting industry, which had to adjust its market offering due to the global sports lockdown. As a result, IBIA focused its integrity monitoring activity to take account of new sports tournaments and competitions that emerged.” He added: “The association is seeking to work with stakeholders to address any potential integrity issues that may be associated with these new events through a range of actions, including promoting a set of standards for the collation of sports data for betting. Whilst there was an increase in overall alerts from 2019 to 2020, it should be noted that the 2020 cases are consistent with the number of alerts reported in both 2017 and 2018.”

Other key data for 2020:

  • 12 – criminal or sporting sanctions on players/teams based on IBIA data
  • 15 – sports on which alerts where reported
  • 25 – percentage increase in football alerts
  • 43 – countries where alerts on sporting events were reported

During the four-year period 2017-2020, IBIA reported 986 alerts across 17 sports and 95 countries, with our unique customer account data leading to numerous sanctions being imposed.

It is no mystery that the advancement of the internet has facilitated the rise of several industries, with the online gambling industry serving as one of the finest examples. This is unsurprising to the majority, as we live in an age where digital technology is constantly evolving. Due to the proliferation of online casinos, the gaming environment in Europe is undergoing a rapid transformation. Today, more individuals prefer to bet online rather than in traditional casinos.

This tendency is most prominent in Europe, where many nations now regulate and legalize internet gambling. Moreover, with the onset of modern technologies such as blockchain, which has allowed Bitcoin bookies and gamblers to access casinos with altcoins, making it safer and faster, it is fascinating to witness how the market is shaping up.

What trends are emerging in the online casino industry in Europe?

Some of the latest trends in the online casino industry in Europe include the rise of mobile gaming, the popularity of live dealer games, and the growth of social casinos. Mobile gaming is becoming increasingly popular as more and more people own smartphones and tablets. Live dealer games are also growing in popularity as they offer a more realistic and immersive experience. Social casinos are also becoming more popular as they allow players to interact with each other and compete for prizes.

  • There are numerous reasons why internet gambling in Europe is growing in popularity. It is significantly more handy than traveling to a physical casino. Using a mobile casino app, you may bet from the comfort of your own home or even on the go.
  • Another reason internet gambling is so prevalent is that there are now many more possibilities than in the past. In the past, most gamblers were restricted to land-based casinos with a limited number of games. Today, however, there are countless online casinos to pick from, each with its own distinct game selection. Therefore, regardless of your gambling preferences, you can find an online casino that suits you.
  • The improving safety and security of internet gambling in Europe is a further element contributing to its growing popularity. In the past, there were concerns over the security of internet gambling. But technological advancements and increasing government regulation have mostly remedied these worries. Nowadays, online gambling is safer than land-based casinos.

All factors considered, it is not surprising that online gambling is gaining popularity in Europe. Due to its convenience, variety, and security, an increasing number of consumers prefer online gambling to traditional brick-and-mortar casinos.

The impact of technology on online gambling in Europe

The impact of technology on online gambling in Europe is significant. Online gambling is a rapidly growing industry, and technology has played a significant role in its growth. The availability of online gambling services has made it easier for people to gamble, and mobile devices have made it even more convenient.

Technology has also allowed the development of new gambling games and platforms, making online gambling even more popular. Furthermore, it has also enhanced security through blockchain, and with the combination of AI, not only is online casino more interesting but even more reliable and safe.

The future of online casino in Europe

The future of online casinos in Europe is looking very bright. With the recent legalization of online gambling in many European countries, more and more people are turning to the internet to play their favorite casino games. This trend is only expected to grow in the coming years as more and more people discover the convenience and fun of playing online.

A prominent reason why online gambling is growing in popularity is that it is becoming increasingly safe and secure. With the latest advances in technology, online casinos can now offer their players a very high level of security, ensuring that their personal and financial information is always safe.

So what does the future hold for online gambling in Europe? It looks like it will continue to grow rapidly, with more and more people discovering its many benefits.
