This move comes ahead of the Brazilian market opening.

Yolo Group has teamed up with the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). By joining the association, Yolo Group can feed its Sportsbet.io brand into the IBIA’s global integrity monitoring network.

Yolo joined the IBIA in anticipation of the Brazil’s sports betting market debut. Several Brazilian operators have joined the association ahead of the launch.

Yolo Group CEO Yolo Entertainment Matthew D’Emanuele discussed the company’s commitment to wagering integrity.

He said, “We take our betting integrity incredibly seriously at Yolo Group, and that’s why joining the IBIA is such an important step for us.

“Our industry relies upon safeguarding sporting competition, and we’ll be working closely with the IBIA to provide all the support we can to help provide a fun, fast and fair environment for sports betting.”

The IBIA is a global integrity network that has more than 50 members and is made up of more than 125 betting brands. The association offers services that combat corruptions through a collaboration of worldwide operators.

The IBIA’s membership currently accounts for more than 60% of Brazil’s remote gambling.

IBIA CEO Khalid Ali took a moment to welcome Yolo Group to the organization.

He commented, “I am delighted to welcome Yolo Group to the association. Yolo Group’s decision to join IBIA demonstrates the company’s desire to utilize the best integrity protection available globally for its sports betting product and further expands IBIA’s leading integrity monitoring network.

“The association looks forward to working closely with the operator to protect it from corrupt betting activity both on a global stage and in relation to specific markets such as Brazil.”
