GLMS Expands North American Presense Launching Montreal Hub

Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has further expanded its presence across North America by launching a new Operational Hub at Montreal, Canada’s Loto Quebec premises.

The new premises will concentrate on examining, identifying, preventing and documenting unusual and suspicious betting activities that can influence the credibility of sports competitions.

GLMS President Ludovico Calvi, commenting on the launch of the new premises, stated: “With the recent sport betting deregulation and legalisation process in North America and the official opening of the new GLMS Operational Hub at Loto Quebec’s premises in Montreal, our association is completing its full globalisation process.

“Loto Quebec has been a very active GLMS member in recent years and we value the standards of their Corporate Social Responsibility, Environmental consciousness and awareness raising of issues including problem gambling and integrity for sports.

“GLMS is a stronger organisation today with a distinctive – glocal approach – leveraging on truly global operations and local intelligence and expertise.”

The Montreal hub, which will focus primarily on the jurisdictions and sports of North America, is the third GLMS hub to be introduced after the company opened premises in Denmark and Hong Kong.

Louis Beaudet, director of sports betting at Loto-Quebec, added: “The safeguard of sports integrity should be a priority for all sports betting operators. Loto-Quebec is proud to contribute to GLMS’ mission as we share the same core values. It is truly an honour to host the third GLMS hub and be able to directly contribute to its success.”
