The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has released its June 2020 newsletter highlighting its successes throughout the month which saw it co-organise a sports integrity webinar as well as launch its third global operational hub.
Having co-organised its first digital sports integrity webinar in conjunction with both the European Lotteries and World Lottery Association, group president Ludovico Calvi stated: “First of all, I am delighted to share the success of GLMS’ very first digital venture – a sports integrity webinar organised together with European Lotteries and World Lottery Association, which took place from 23 – 25 June 2020.
“We welcomed almost 300 speakers and participants from around the world, from China to the US and we gleaned some best practices, which will help our members, partners and key stakeholders in the COVID-19 recovery and post recovery phase.”
Regarding the opening of GLMS’ third global hub Calvi added: “We were also delighted to launch our third global operational hub – our first on the American continent – hosted by our member, Loto-Quebec with two full-time analysis monitoring coordinators, Benoit and Chris.
“As in the last months, our Operations team continues to monitor sports competitions, tirelessly analysing suspicious trading patterns, and alerting cases to our partners and members while preparing for a busy summer as suspended competitions re-start.”
Calvi, who also took part in SBC’s CasinoBeats Malta Digital Summit between the dates of June 30 – July 2 concluded: “Meanwhile, we are building our legal services and continue to contribute to policy- making and standard-setting and enhance concrete actions through our projects with members, partners and stakeholders.
“I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to continue to stay vigilant and strong despite the enlightening of measures, and to wish you a great summer.”
