Oddset Sportwetten GmbH has been the fourth member to become an Associate Member of the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS).
The German state-owned corporation, which secures membership, will be connected to the visual identity of GLMS and the overall operations. Oddset can also gain access to GLMS global alert summaries for suspicious behaviour, as well as tools for awareness and prevention.
GLMS President Ludovico Calvi commented on this development and stated: “I am delighted to welcome Oddset within the GLMS family. With the recent regulatory evolution, the largest market in Europe will now take further steps towards a full deregulation of the gaming market.
“Sports betting will definitely lead the way in Germany and Oddset will play an important role in the promotion of transparent and socially responsible gaming operations. We look forward to having ODDSET on board and working closely with them with the objective of protecting our core values and acting as a shield against global sport corruption.”
Christof Schoepfel, chief executive officer of Oddset Sportwetten GmbH added: “We are pleased to make an active contribution to the global lottery monitoring system and also to benefit from the professional services which GLMS provides to the members. As a responsible sports betting provider, owned by and cooperating closely with lottery companies, we feel very committed to the goals of GLMS.
“Every sports betting offer should go hand in hand with the overarching goal of maintaining the integrity of the sport, because only a fair sporting event offers our customers the pleasure of betting. Therefore, we regard it as our duty to support GLMS in the best possible way.”
