Vbet, which was founded in 2003, will now feed into IBIA’s global betting integrity monitoring and alert platform, where operators may report potentially suspicious activity.

Tigran Harutyunyan, head of trading and sports at VBET, said the deal would show the brand’s commitment to integrity and fairness.

“We are delighted to be joining the membership of the International Betting Integrity Association and we look forward to our mutual collaboration,” Harutyunyan said. “We offer markets on over 120 sports globally, so helping to maintain the integrity of the sporting events we offer to our customers is vital. 

“The IBIA’s global reputation for dealing with sport integrity issues is unparalleled and this partnership underlines our commitment to providing our customers with the fairest offering possible.”

VBet is the second operator to join IBIA in the space of a week, after the ComeOn Group. Earlier this year, IBIA also announced the launch of its integrity monitoring service in the US and Canada. The body has already secured licenses in a number of US states, including Arizona, Colorado and New York, with more pending.
