IBIA names Belgium's Napoleon Sports & Casino as new member

14 January 2020

The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), the integrity monitoring body formerly known as ESSA, has revealed Belgian operator Napoleon Sports & Casino as its latest member.

Napoleon, which has offered online sports betting since 2012, will join around 50 other licensed retail and online sports betting brands within the IBIA network.

Other recent additions to the IBIA's roster of partners include sports betting technologies provider Kambi, Stockholm-listed igaming operator LeoVegas Group and Cyprus-based sports betting brand Bet on Alfa.

“We are committed to protecting our consumers and sports from corruption and to ensuring that our sports betting product meets the highest standards of fairness and integrity,” Napoleon Sports & Casino’s chief executive Francesco Postiglione said.

“IBIA is the global standard-bearer for our sector and is recognised as such by major sports and regulators alike. We look forward to working closely with the association and to continuing to strengthen our internal customer and business protection protocols to identify and punish sports betting corruption.”

IBIA chief executive Khalid Ali added: “I’m delighted that Napoleon Sports & Casino has joined IBIA, further demonstrating its commitment to protecting the integrity of betting products and sporting events. Regulators are increasingly requiring operators to have robust betting integrity measures in place.

“IBIA membership ensures that Napoleon Sports & Casino, as with all of our members, is well-placed to meet any integrity requirements in existing and emerging markets, and able to reap the related commercial benefits from those markets.”
