ESSA reveals US vision as 62 suspicious alerts raised in Q2

first_img ESSA has reported a total of 62 cases of suspicious betting to the relevant authorities during the second quarter of 2018, involving eight different sports.The international betting integrity body highlights the vast majority (44) emanated from tennis, with football next in line with 12 suspicious alerts, followed by bowls, handball, boxing, basketball, beach volleyball and esports which had one case each. Khalid Ali, ESSA Secretary General, commented: “We have played a crucial role in bringing transparency to betting related match-fixing, which is why we have taken a keen interest in the recent publication of the Interim Report into tennis by the Independent Review Panel. “We support many of the recommendations made by the Panel, and we wish to work with the sport to address betting related issues. However, we have serious concerns about a blanket discontinuation of the sale of data for events at the lowest level of tennis, and whether that approach is proportionate to the issue and will provide a practical and effective solution.”“We are seeking to deliver a number of alternative evidence-based options that we hope the Panel, and the various governing bodies within the sport, will be willing to explore in more detail, and to reaching a position that is mutually beneficial, places integrity to the fore and also serves to avoid any adverse commercial impacts”.Amongst the report was a guest comment from Sara Slane, senior vice president of public affairs at the American Gaming Association, explaining what the legalised sports betting landscape could look like, as well as addressing work carried out between both parties with the aim of “creating an ‘ESSA style’ model for the US market”.Speaking of the US market, Slane commented: “As legal sports betting becomes a reality in the United States, the American Gaming Association (AGA) looks to ESSA as a model for promoting sports betting in a safe and regulated environment, while ensuring the integrity of games.“As sports betting opens up across the US, the gaming industry hopes to build off of the integrity monitoring successes enjoyed in Nevada, as well as in regulated markets throughout Europe. To that end, the AGA supports the establishment of a collaborative integrity monitoring association in the US.” Related Articles Alberto Alfieri: Leading the way for Gamingtec’s B2C growth August 25, 2020 EU research agency demands urgent action on loot box consumer safeguards July 29, 2020 StumbleUpon IBIA: Australia has made no progress on safeguarding sports integrity   July 28, 2020 Submit Share Sharelast_img read more

I just saw on the news last night that someone just like this was in Augusta and did the same thing. Report Reply 1 reply · active 380 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down Boomer · 380 weeks ago Don’t tell me Obamacare doesn’t take effect until 2014. I was laid off this month from a healthcare job because the company was downsizing; partly due to Medicare cuts that will take effect very soon. And for another matter, I’d love to go back to the “collapsed” economy of the last administration when unemployment was under 6%, gas was 2 dollars and healthcare jobs had a future.
