Scientific Games (SG) announced that it is the first sports betting supplier to join the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) as an associate member.
The GLMS is a monitoring system used by the lottery industry to detect and analyze suspicious betting activity which could threaten the integrity of sporting events.
SG joined the GLMS Associate Membership program, which will allow SG to receive GLMS alerts and benefit from access to education and prevention tools.
SG will also benefit from sponsorship opportunities at GLMS events.
This news comes shortly after SG launched its Managed Trading Services, a risk, liability and player management service for sports betting operators.
Ludovico Calvi, GLMS President said: “The inclusion of Scientific Games as the first lottery supplier GLMS Associate Member further enhances our efforts to become a truly global sports integrity body.”
Pat McHugh, Senior VP of Global Lottery Systems for SG, added: “We are very impressed by the strong growth of the GLMS over the past year, and we are honored to support its good efforts now as an Associate Member.”
