Jack Entertainment has joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) via BetJack, its sports betting brand, soon after launching in Ohio.
Licensed to operate retail and online sports betting in Ohio, BetJack joins IBIA’s expanding organisation which covers 50% of all regulated commercial operator online betting activity.
IBIA’s network stretches across more than 40 members and more than 100 betting brands, accounting for over $137bn (£113bn/€128bn) in global betting handle each year.
Adam Suliman, SVP of sports and digital gaming, said he was excited about the partnership.
“We are excited to launch BetJack in Ohio and look forward to partnering with IBIA for their proven track record of providing critical integrity monitoring and protection services for the sports betting industry,” he said.
Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, said: “IBIA is delighted to welcome BetJack to the association. Maintaining the integrity of betting and related sporting events is a crucial part of the development of the sector in North America.
“BetJack’s decision to join IBIA and its commitment to sports betting integrity attests to its core principles. The operator continues IBIA’s expansion across the US regulated market and where our growing membership accounts for around 70% of all regulated online sports betting revenue”.
Bet99 joins IBIA
In November of 2022, Canadian online sports betting and casino platform Bet99 joined IBIA.
This decision followed the Bet99’s approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario and iGaming Ontario to operate online.
Unlike in Ohio, Ontario licence-holders must join an integrity body such as IBIA.
