The International Betting Integrity Association and H2 Gambling Capital, the leading bodies in betting integrity and gambling market data, have signed a partnership agreement that makes H2 the official market data partner of the integrity association. The association has been active across six continents in recent years, promoting effective integrity arrangements and practical betting market frameworks with policymakers. The tie-up with H2, which includes access to its extensive market database of over 2 million data points across 150 jurisdictions, will significantly strengthen that global policy outreach.

Khalid Ali, Secretary General of the International Betting Integrity Association, said: “We worked with H2 when delivering our position and proposals to the independent review of tennis integrity last year. H2’s data and economic analysis was crucial and underpinned our key arguments during those discussions. Both parties are keen to continue working together and to utilise H2’s best in class global gambling data to foster informed regulatory policies.”

David Henwood, Director at H2 Gambling Capital, said: “H2 is dedicated to providing the best independent data and market intelligence in the sector. We increasingly want to help our clients and partners take advantage of new opportunities, safeguard their interests and meet their commercial objectives. Ensuring a safe betting environment is central to the current regulatory debate and the International Betting Integrity Association is at the forefront of that global discussion. We aim to support the association’s objectives in this area with our unrivalled intelligence, analysis and market data.”

The integrity association has now released the previously unpublished economic data produced by H2 (available here) which underpinned the association’s wider response to the Independent Review Panel’s (IRP) interim report on tennis integrity. In that, it opposed the IRP’s proposed prohibition on ITF in-play data being sold to betting operators and which saw the IRP subsequently amend the scope of this provision in its final report.

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 & 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.

The association publishes its responses to gambling consultations and its quarterly reports, covering the integrity alerts reported through its Monitoring & Alert Platform, which can be viewed here.

Online banking payments provider Trustly has launched Trustly Live, the product built specifically for land-based gaming. With the introduction of Trustly Live, Trustly is helping to remove the need for cash at land-based casinos and sportsbooks.

With Trustly Live, players can scan a Trustly QR code with their smartphone and instantly deposit funds from their online bank account. This helps operators to lower cash handling costs while also catering to the preferences of their players. Additionally, Trustly Live can strengthen KYC and AML checks, ultimately helping to enhance the trackability of players and meet increasingly strict regulatory requirements. Trustly Live is currently live with Cherry Spelglädje in 45 locations in Sweden and plans to expand across Europe in the coming months.

“The launch of Trustly Live will help land-based operators thrive in today’s increasingly cashless economies. Cash handling is expensive, unsafe and, frankly, outdated. Consumers are already adopting safer and more convenient ways to pay and Trustly is excited to be bringing innovation to the land-based gaming world by helping operators keep pace with their players’ preferences,” Samuel Barrett, Director of Gaming at Trustly said.
