The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) generated 287 alerts during the second quarter of 2022, its Q2 Monitoring and Intelligence Report has revealed.

This represents a drop from Q1 (January – March) when 300 alerts were generated, which included 14 termed as ‘code red’.

However, while the overall number of alerts decreased between April and June, the number of code red notifications increased to 18 in Q2.

Meanwhile, GLMS noted a ‘significantly larger’ number of alerts in football during Q2, which can be explained by the fact that this period incorporates the end of the season for most leagues.

GLMS also highlighted its coverage of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, working alongside the governing body to monitor proceedings.

Between April to June, GLMS followed up and alerted its partners to 19 matches, with seven analysis reports subsequently compiled.

The organisation also shared a number of its highlights from a ‘busy’ Q2 which saw the Canadian province of Ontario launch its new online gaming market in April – GLMS also received its licence from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario in the same month, continuing its support for OLG.

In May, GLMS approved three new associate membersCSCF Foundation for Sport Integrity, the Hungarian Supervisory Authority for Regulatory Affairs and the Greek National Platform.

“Another key area of our work is education and awareness raising,” its foreword from the report read. “Over the quarter, GLMS participated in various events, underscoring its key monitoring activities and collaboration with law enforcement, sports and sports betting organisations that contribute to the united effort to combat match fixing and maintain sports integrity.

“Finally, GLMS presented at the University of Lausanne’s annual course on Regulation of Global Sport as well as during an Advanced Course in Sports Betting, hosted by Católica Faculdade de Direito, Escola de Lisboa in Portugal. It also continued its work with partner project, Integrisport Next, participating in awareness-raising sessions in Cyprus and Malta.”
