World Lottery Association and European Lotteries collaborate to provide extensive monitoring system

The World Lottery Association (WLA) and European Lotteries (EL) have launched a new Sportradar-powered global lottery monitoring system (GLMS), whose operational headquarters will be hosted by Danske Spil.

The GLMS platform, which has been in “years of development” will provide WLA and EL members with extensive monitoring of the various betting markets offered by government – authorised lotteries and bookmakers utilising Sportradar’s technology.

The technology provides member lotteries with alerts, and a platform for users to communicate in terms of potentially suspicious matches.

“Both the EL and the WLA are absolutely committed to honest betting and sports integrity worldwide,” commented Friedrich Stickler, president of European Lotteries. “I am confident that the GLMS will provide sport and society with a significant helping hand in keeping sport competitions safe and clean, taking the monitoring work onto a higher level.”

“Our cooperation with the EL in founding the GLMS, aided by the Sportradar's state-of-the-art technology, will help us unite our member lotteries across five continents in the fight against fraud in sports,” WLA president Jean-Luc Moner-Banet added.
