KTO Becomes Latest Brazil-Focused Sports Betting Operator to Join IBIA

Published

on

 

KTO, a sports betting brand owned by the KTO Group, has joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). The company was founded in 2018 and has a strong Latin American presence, notably in Brazil where it ranks in the top ten most popular iGaming brands.

The move fulfils the regulatory obligation in Brazil, under the recently published Provisional Measure, to join an international body for monitoring sports integrity. The operator joins nearly 50 companies and over 125 leading sports betting brands in the IBIA, further strengthening the association’s position as the world’s leading operator-run integrity monitoring body.

“We are thrilled to become members of the IBIA,” the Managing Director for KTO, Jeff Tabone, said. “We view this as a step that reinforces our dedication to upholding the highest standards of integrity in sports betting. Trust has always been a cornerstone of the KTO brand and joining the IBIA signifies our commitment to a safe and transparent environment for our customers and the wider industry.”

“KTO is the latest operator to make the IBIA its preferred integrity partner for Brazil and its wider global operations,” the Chief Executive Officer for the IBIA, Khalid Ali, said. “It further expands the IBIA’s position in the Latin American region and Brazil in particular where our members are already estimated to account for over 60% of the remote gambling market. The association looks forward to working closely with KTO and welcomes the operator’s commitment to protecting its sports betting operations through the IBIA’s world leading integrity network.”

The IBIA announced its expansion into Brazil earlier this year ahead of the expected regulation of the market. The Brazilian government’s subsequent Provisional Measure, published on July 25, includes a requirement for licensed operators to be part of an international body for monitoring sports integrity.

According to H2 Gambling Capital, the leading independent authority on global gambling market data, the IBIA members are estimated to already account for over 60% of the Brazilian remote gambling market. That leading market position will enable the IBIA to provide a highly accurate analysis and effective deterrent against betting related fraud, making it uniquely positioned to support a crack-down on match-fixing in Brazil.

The IBIA is a not-for-profit body that has no competing conflicts with the delivery of commercial services to other sectors and is run by operators for operators to protect regulated sports betting markets, especially for sports and consumers, from match-fixing. The IBIA’s global monitoring network is a highly effective anti-corruption tool, detecting and reporting suspicious activity in regulated betting markets. Through the IBIA’s monitoring network, it is possible to track transactional activities linked to individual customer accounts.

All IBIA members are required to pass a strict due diligence process and commit to its code of conduct. The association recently released its Q2 integrity report detailing 50 alerts reported in the quarter. The IBIA reported 268 alerts to the authorities in 2022 with successful sporting or criminal sanctions against 15 teams, officials or players where the IBIA had reported suspicious activity on their matches.

MGM Resorts Named a Proud Partner of the New York Yankees

MGM Resorts International announced a new partnership designating MGM Resorts as a “Proud Partner of the New York Yankees”.

The two organizations will collaborate to deliver exclusive VIP experiences to MGM Rewards members and baseball fans, including the opportunity to watch batting practice from the warning track and throw out a ceremonial first pitch at Yankee Stadium. MGM Resorts will also have brand placement at Yankee Stadium on LED signage, first and third base rotational signage, and its logo appearing on the back of the pitcher’s mound during live local television broadcasts of select games.

“We remain committed to investing in the community, while collaborating with the New York Yankees to provide unparalleled experiences for baseball fans. Our company has owned and operated Empire City Casino and Yonkers Raceway for the past five years. As we continue working to secure a full commercial casino license at Empire City, this partnership allows us to further develop these properties to their potential, while providing the world-class hospitality guests have come to expect from the MGM Resorts brand,” Bill Hornbuckle, CEO & President of MGM Resorts, said.

“We are excited to partner with MGM Resorts this season. Through branding displayed on signage inside Yankee Stadium and integrated into our television broadcasts, the MGM Resorts brand will only see increased exposure and recognition for its resort and casino properties— especially for the nearby Empire City Casino,” Michael Tusiani, SVP of Partnerships at New York Yankees, said.

As this partnership moves forward, MGM Resorts’ Empire City Casino plans to host New York Yankees-themed fan activities and experiences involving active Major League Baseball players, as well as alumni.

Ed Domingo, President and COO of MGM Resorts’ Empire City Casino, said: “This alliance with the Yankees allows us to create unique and engaging opportunities for guests and baseball fans alike. Empire City sits less than two miles from the Bronx border and is not only the gaming entertainment destination of choice for Bronxites, but also the longtime employer of hundreds of team members who call the Bronx home. We are well positioned to significantly increase that number when a full-scale commercial casino license is secured.”

In November 2018, MGM Resorts and Major League Baseball formed a wide-ranging and groundbreaking partnership in the US and Japan, designating MGM Resorts as the first “Official Gaming Partner of MLB” and “Official Entertainment Partner of MLB”. Additionally, MGM Resorts has been an “Official Partner of MLB Players Inc” since 2022.
