Retail and online gambling operator Bingoal has become a member of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), highlighting its commitment to sports betting integrity.

Through its membership, Bingoal will incorporate its sportsbook operations with IBIA’s global betting integrity monitoring and alert platform, sharing information on suspicious betting activities with around 85 other brands – with an aim of combatting instances of match-fixing and corruption.

Khalid Ali, IBIA’s CEO, commented: “Bingoal is a very welcome addition to IBIA’s monitoring and alert platform and increases the association’s global regulated market oversight.

“The operator adds both retail and online intelligence capacity, with the former often being overlooked in the wider integrity data gathering debate. It is very pleasing that responsible operators such as Bingoal continue to recognise the importance of integrity and see IBIA as their preferred partner.”

Bingoal became the fifth firm to join the IBIA in 2020, which gained five new members last year. The membership allows the Belgian operator to benefit from the platform’s security and business protection protocols.

Joeri Impens, CEO of Bingoal, added: “As a socially responsible business, Bingoal recognises that maintaining the integrity of our sportsbook product is an essential pillar of our commitment towards protecting our customers and the sporting events on which we offer markets.

“IBIA is the world leader in this area and its global operational focus and capacity to protect its members’ businesses was an important factor in our decision to join the association.”
