The leading casino resorts developer, Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, announced a new collaboration with the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). The announcement came Wednesday and sees Mohegan become a member of the Association.
Mohegan Teams up with IBIA
The IBIA is tasked with safeguarding the integrity of the global betting industry. A growing roster of regulated sports betting operators and organizations support the Association. Annually, the IBIA’s members account for nearly 50% of the regulated gambling industry in the world. This translates to a staggering sum surpassing $137 billion in global betting handle every year.
Joining forces with IBIA, leading operators seek to protect the integrity of their services and eliminate corruption. This, according to the Association is achieved via collective action. A comprehensive monitoring and alert network helps raise reports for suspicious activity within different markets.
Besides operators, the IBIA collaborates with gambling regulators and sports organizations, enabling them to prosecute corruption by providing vital data. This allows regulators around the globe as well as sports organizations react accordingly when it comes to suspicious bets or signs of corruption. At the same time, the process safeguards the integrity of the betting operations offered by gambling companies.
The Collaboration Brings Excitement for IBIA and Mohegan
According to the IBIA’s CEO, Khalid Ali, joining forces with Mohegan marks a major step in expanding the reach of the Association around the world and in North America. He outlined that IBIA is excited to team up with leading operators such as Mohegan and help protect the integrity of betting operations.
“The addition of Mohegan to IBIA’s ranks is an important boost for the association, maintaining our strong growth globally and particularly in North America.“
