IBIA welcomes Africa’s Betking as latest member

| By Robert Fletcher
International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has announced Africa-facing online and retail betting operator BetKing as its latest member.

BetKing will feed into the IBIA’s global betting integrity monitoring and alert platform, working alongside the IBIA’s network of other locally licensed members from around the world. 

Founded in 2018, BetKing holds licences in Kenya, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Ghana.

“We are delighted to have joined the fight against corruption in sport and look forward to working with IBIA and our colleagues across the industry in tackling match-fixing and all associated fraudulent activity,” BetKing’s head of trading operations Karim Fatih said.

The addition of BetKing to the IBIA comes after the organisation last week also welcomed GAN-owned Coolbet as a member.

Other operators to have joined the IBIA in recent months include BetConstruct-operated sports betting brand VBet and online gambling operator ComeOn Group.

Together, IBIA members account for €115bn (£98bn/($123bn) in global annual turnover.
