The International Handball Federation (IHF) and Sportradar Integrity Services – a global supplier of sport integrity solutions and partner to over 100 sports federations and leagues – have today entered a multi-year agreement for the monitoring of global handball events. Sportradar Integrity Services is a unit of Sportradar (NASDAQ: SRAD) (“Sportradar” or “the Company”), the leading global sports technology company creating immersive experiences for sports fans and bettors.

Under the agreement, Sportradar Integrity Services will draw upon its substantial experience and expertise – having monitored global betting markets for more than 16 years – to provide bet monitoring via its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) for IHF events, including both the men’s and women’s World, Junior and Youth World Championships, as well as the IHF Super Globe. Sportradar considers bet monitoring essential to every sport and believes that the service should be available to help protect all levels of competition.

The UFDS is an advanced and proven bet monitoring system that has been independently assessed and verified by recognized experts in the field of sports betting and integrity. Betting patterns are analysed for abnormalities by a global team of qualified integrity experts, and any suspicious matches are subsequently reported to partners, allowing critical visibility into worldwide match-fixing. Sportradar Integrity Services have detected over 6,500 suspicious matches during the past 16 years with more than 750 of these taking place in 2021 alone.

IHF President Dr. Hassan Moustafa said: “We recognize the modern-day integrity threats that face global sport, and handball is no exception. The IHF makes it a top priority to have robust measures in place to help safeguard the integrity of our major events, not just at men’s and women’s senior level, but also at youth and junior level. Sportradar have a proven track record in the field of sports integrity, and the depth of their bet monitoring capabilities will help to support our overall integrity programme in the years ahead.”

Sportradar Integrity Services Managing Director Andreas Krannich added: “We are delighted to partner with IHF to help support their integrity programme with our UFDS bet monitoring solution. We have witnessed rising integrity issues in handball over the past five years, and so we credit the vigilance shown by IHF in adding to the integrity provisions surrounding their events. At Sportradar, we are fully committed to assisting our partners’ integrity efforts and look forward to working together with the IHF to support the journey of global handball in the coming years.”

Riches rain in Blueprint Gaming’s Gold Blitz Free Spins Fortune Play
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Blueprint Gaming’s latest slot release is a fresh take on the ever-popular theme of glittering golden prizes with the additional draw of its recent mechanic in Gold Blitz Free Spins Fortune Play.

Making the most of proven, successful gameplay elements, Gold Blitz Free Spins Fortune Play sets its sights on devotees of free spins and high volatility games and adds Fortune Play – which allows for play across four reel sets simultaneously.

Three bonus symbols in view award the Free Spins round where only the top three Gold Bullion symbols and wilds are on the reels, giving a far greater chance of a super-stacked golden win.

After any reel win, a key engagement feature is the ability to collect the amount won or gamble it on one of two gamble wheels – one for cash and the other for the chance to win a number of Free Spins. Does the player keep their winnings or gamble for a potentially enormous 50 free spins?

Fortune Play is where the action really hots up, with only the top three Gold Bullion symbols and wilds in play on the reels. Any wilds that land transfer to any remaining reels, giving more chance for big wins.

The incredible free spins on offer alongside the opportunity to play four reel sets at once set Gold Blitz Free Spins Fortune Play apart as a highly volatile slots experience that is crammed with opportunity.

Jo Purvis, Director of Key Accounts and Marketing UK at Blueprint Gaming, said: “The action is pure gold in this homage to free spins and frenzied action. The trademark Blueprint polish brings the glittering reels and symbols to life especially when Fortune Play begins.

“Players will love the attention to the rich golden detail on each reel as they search for their own Gold Blitz from up to 50 free spins and is another example of Blueprint’s insight into developing a fantastically fun slot.”
