50 down from 85: IBIA reports suspicious betting alerts across gambling

The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has reported in its Q3 2023 report that 50 suspicious betting alerts were identified across IBIA members’ global businesses, which accounts for over 125 sports betting brands.

The alerts spanned eight different sports in 21 countries, with Europe’s 30 alerts making it the continent with the highest total.

Tennis was the sport with the largest number of alerts in Q3 2023, increasing 7% from the figure reported for the sport in Q2 2023. Though football represented 13 of the alerts, this was in fact a decrease of 32% on the 19 cases reported for it in Q2 2023.

Despite all of this, the 50 alerts reported in Q3 2023 are a decrease of 41% when compared to the Q3 total for 2022, which saw 85 alerts.

Khalid Ali,slots the IBIA CEO, emphasised the progress that had been made with the decrease in overall alerts:

“The quarter saw a continued reduction in alerts with a more than 30% decrease in the first three quarters relative to 2022, with tennis a major contributory factor.

"During the quarter, IBIA and the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) co-hosted a best practice integrity seminar in New York with many of the premier sports and betting operators in the US.

"That cross-sector cooperative approach underlines the strength of our relationship with tennis, as acknowledged by the ITIA, and our shared commitment to working in partnership to combat corruption in that sport.”
