Latest GLMS Reports Indicate 23 Matches Had Doubtful Betting Activities in Q3 2019


According to the Global Lottery Monitoring System, about 23 matches are reported to have dubious betting activities in quarter three of 2019, with football being at the top of the list.

The GLMS issued close to 209 alerts to members during this period up to the end of September. About 190 of the 209 are attributed to dubious activities in the global football betting industry.

More than 171 alerts were issued before events began, and only 2 were files as the game went on. Of the 23 signals that transformed into reports, about 17 were linked to football, with 7 connected to the UEFA and 1 with FIFA. Other releases on football malpractices were related to local governing bodies.

Europe issues most of the alerts, with close to 166 reported in quarter three. Of these, 156 were concerning football-related betting. Asia follows closely behind with about 20 alerts, all related to football, and South American comes in third with more than 10.

According to Ludovico Calvi, president at GLMS, the body has been monitoring and gathering intelligence intensely after the start of the new season. Nevertheless, during the third quarter, they were excited to keep on forming a solid foundation for their global responsibilities and action against sports malpractices.
