The Netherlands gambling authority, Kansspelautoriteit, has joined forces with the International Olympic Committee’s Integrity Betting Intelligence System (IBIS) to strengthen its anti-match fixing and sports integrity capabilities.

Access to the system will enable Kansspelautoriteit to share information on suspicious gambling, suspected match-fixing and illegal betting.

“With IBIS, the authority will be strengthened in combating match fixation. International cooperation is the key to an effective approach. We need to share information and gain knowledge,” vice chairman of Kansspelautoriteit, Henk Kesler, said.

“IBIS offers direct international contact with match fixing stakeholders and gives us the opportunity to access information that would otherwise remain hidden.”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
