A subsidiary of JVH Gaming & Entertainment Group (JVH), Jack’s Casino & Sports, has joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). JVH is the Netherlands’ largest private gaming operator, with 85 retail gaming locations, a market share of over 30% and a track record dating back almost 65 years.
The move into online gambling and the inclusion of its Jack’s brand within the IBIA roster brings five of the seven operators currently offering sports betting in the Netherlands into the association. All online betting operators licensed in the Netherlands are required to be part of an international integrity monitoring body. The majority of those issued with a licence to date are members of IBIA.
The association, which recently launched in North America, expects to make further member announcements over the coming months as more licences are issued in Holland and as a similar integrity monitoring requirement is enforced in Ontario and various US states.
Eric Olders, CEO & Chairman of the JVH Group said: “We are proud to become a member of IBIA. By joining we are protecting the integrity of sports and sports betting. Integrity is a key value, for us and for sports, and it is essential for athletes and essential for our customers. It is the basis of our licence to operate. With the help of the IBIA’s data, potential malpractices can be spotted at an early stage, enabling us to act instantly. By joining forces with IBIA, we strive for a safe environment for our players, all athletes and sports in general.”
