The Global Lottery Monitoring System Says More than 60 Suspicious Betting Activities Filed
The Global Lottery Monitoring System says more than 60 suspicious betting activities reports were filed for the first half of the year. The GLMS is the sports betting integrity body for the entire lottery industry and is responsible for the lottery sector of the industry to uphold sporting integrity. The GLMS said they sent out more than 430 alerts during the first half of the year with the number of alerts signifying enough evidence of suspicious activity across betting patterns with sporting events.
Of the 430+ alerts, a little more than 320 were in connection with football matches and the rest related to European events. What the GLMS means by alerts is that there were suggested irregularities with match-fix betting. Once the GLMS sends out an alert an investigation is opened, and a report is generated on the specific match.
The GLMS said they are continually improving its Monitoring and Integrity services. These services include prevention and educational programs for partners and support members to utilize its preventive tools to help renew sporting “enthusiasm and passion”. The President of the FLMS said their educational programs assist with national regulatory compliance and public needs.
