IBIA First Quarter 2023 Integrity Report Reveals 40 Suspicious Alerts
The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has published its integrity report for Q1 2023.
Via the report, the IBIA revealed that it received 40 suspicious betting alerts across nine sports, down by 16.7% compared to the alerts it recorded in Q1 2022 and 20% from the previous quarter.
Football has the highest number of alerts at 15, while tennis came a close second with 12. Combined, the two sports contributed 67.5% of the warnings in the first quarter.
Table Tennis generated four of the alerts, while Basketball and esports accounted for two alerts each. Other sports like volleyball, boxing, and snooker got one alert each.
24 alerts occurred in Europe, accounting for 60% of all reports. Asia has six, while Africa recorded four signals. North America and South America contributed two alerts each.
The IBIA did not add two esports alerts to this breakdown as it was unsure where the alerts took place.
By country, Spain has the highest alerts at 8, with four being in football while the other four were in tennis.
IBIA’s monitoring and alert network provides the most comprehensive, robust, and detailed intelligence on suspicious betting activity globally. It utilizes detailed customer-account data that is only available to IBIA and its members and covers nearly 50% of all regulated commercial online betting. By harnessing those collective resources, we are able to deploy a protective shield around IBIA operators, resulting in fewer attempts to corrupt our members compared to non-members.
In the first quarter, IBIA added several operators to its membership list, including Simplebet and Fanatics.
