Spillemyndigheden, the Danish Gambling Authority, has strengthened the country’s approach to integrity through collaboration with the United Lotteries for Integrity in Sports (ULIS).

It comes following the move to expand its remit and take on sports integrity duties from Anti-Doping Denmark.

As a result of the partnership, the regulator has become an associate member of the organisation, which functions as a non-profit entity focused on the promotion of transparency and integrity in sports betting.

As an associate member, Spillemyndigheden will participate in ULIS events and activities, such as workshops, conferences and training sessions. The authority will also gain access to the organisation’s resources and expertise on integrity issues.

Luca Esposito, ULIS General Secretary, said: “The Danish Gambling Authority is committed to ensuring a fair and transparent market in Denmark.

”We believe that our collaboration and cooperation are key to ensuring the integrity of sports betting in Denmark, and we look forward to working with the Danish Gambling Authority as our new public authority Associate Member.”

Representing various lottery operators – many of which provide sports betting procuts – ULIS works towards its anti-match-fixing and counter-corruption goals with sports bodies, governments and regulators.

Spillemyndigheden’s primary remit focuses around issuing betting and gaming licences, supervising operators and monitoring the Danish industry to ensure compliance with regulations and standards.

Responsibilities include organising meeting forums and analysing suspicious betting information and activity, as well as information sharing, reporting and informing national and international authorities when suspect matches are identified.

Spillemyndigheden’s membership of the ULIS – which rebranded from the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) in October 2022 – is the latest enhancement of its operations in this field.
