Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Dimayor, the leading football competition organiser in Colombia and one of the largest in Latin America, announced a new partnership with Genius Sports to provide the league with an unprecedented level of protection against match-fixing and betting-related corruption.

This new partnership will review and strengthen Dimayor’s integrity policies, including its rules around insider information and structures for running investigations, implementing international best practices, regulations and procedures.

Dimayor will also benefit from essential visibility over global betting on its games through Genius Sports’ Bet Monitoring System. By comparing real-time odds movements from regulated and unregulated betting markets with predictive algorithms and key intelligence from bookmakers, this technology will automatically flag any potentially suspicious betting activity.

Genius Sports’ integrity leadership team will also conduct a series of educational workshops with Dimayor’s players, coaches and officials, reinforcing the new rules and regulations and emphasising the potential consequences of match-fixing.

To support its enhanced integrity strategy and enhance the value of its official data, Dimayor will work alongside Genius Sports to control the collection and distribution of its live statistics. Unauthorised or illegitimate data sources on Dimayor games will be identified and disrupted, providing complete transparency and control as well as a global audience to engage.

Jorge Enrique Velez, President of Dimayor, commented: “Dimayor is committed to the integrity of football and transparency around our competitions. This is why the arrival of Genius Sports is a demonstration of our interest in tracking betting in Colombian Professional Football, through monitoring and market analysis, to prevent irregularities that may involve stakeholders from our football competitions. In this way we reaffirm our commitment with the sports betting operator guild, with the Prosecutors Office and the National Government.

“Genius Sports is the largest company worldwide to guarantee control over this and will work alongside us in all of the games of our competitions. We are the first league in South America to engage integrity and transparency directly”.

Mark Locke, CEO of Genius Sports Group, said: “Since 2016 when we opened our Latin American headquarters in Medellín and hosted the region’s first ever sports integrity summit in Bogota the following year, Colombia has been central to our global success. It is a real honour to have been chosen by Dimayor as their trusted data and integrity partner, ensuring their fans can have faith in a fair and transparent contest and the league is equipped with the information and tools to maintain a clean, honest and unpredictable sport.”

We are very pleased to build a successful relationship with a professional and well-respected operator such as Rivalo,” Francesca Raniolo, Sales Executive at Betsoft Gaming, said.

“Now more than ever, having a great offering of casino games, will be the determinant factor for customer acquisition and retention.

Betmotion bolsters offering to support its community during turbulent times
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

As the industry navigates through these turbulent times, Betmotion, the leading Latin American gambling site dedicated to Sportsbook, Casino and Bingo games, has been working tirelessly to ensure its offering remains as strong and socially responsible as ever.

While the global health emergency has escalated, Betmotion’s dedicated team has been working hard on ensuring its community has constant access to outstanding entertainment.

Players can now access more virtual sports games than ever on the platform and a wide selection of new eSports leagues have been added. To support this, Betmotion has created numerous risk-free bets to enable players to sample, trial and test the games.

While players wait for professional sporting events to kick-off again, they can ponder which player will score first for a whole host of events once the whistle blows. A number of betting markets have been launched for the latest series of the Brazilian Big Brother too.

Keeping fit and active has become tougher and Betmotion is energising its community to exercise by running three professional 20 minute fitness classes each week through its channel. No equipment is needed except a yoga mat or just a space on the carpet.

Online socialising and community has never been more important while the government delivered its ‘stay at home’ instruction. In response, Betmotion is giving players a chance to win free spins for simply uploading an image of them at home, using the hashtag and tag Betmotion in their stories.

Betmotion.com’s COO Luis Traversa said: “During these unprecedented times we need to ensure our players are still able to enjoy themselves while adhering to the rules to keep our society safe. We have been hard at it adding new content, innovating current games and building a safe environment for everyone to stay entertained. Our enhanced service ensures our players get all the fun they desire while staying physically healthy too.”
