Mohegan, the group formally known as Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, has become the latest business to become a member of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).
As an approved member, Mohegan will now work with the IBIA and its network of members to protect sports integrity.
Established in 1996, Mohegan is an extension of the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut and is the owner, developer and manager of gambling and entertainment resorts across the US, Canada and Northern Asia. It also offers online gambling via its Mohegan Digital brand.
“Digital gaming and sports wagering will continue to grow as cornerstones of the entertainment industry over the next few years,” Mohegan president and chief executive Ray Pineault said.
“Becoming a member of the IBIA allows us to confidently remain at the forefront of these trends and innovations, while knowing we have strategic partners in this highly-regulated industry.”
IBIA chief executive Khalid Ali added: “The addition of Mohegan to IBIA’s ranks is an important boost for the association, maintaining our strong growth globally and particularly in North America.
“IBIA welcomes the support for, and commitment of, companies like Mohegan to betting integrity and to working in partnership with our leading monitoring network covering many of the largest regulated operators in the world.”
The news comes after the IBIA this week also announced a Memorandum of Understanding with the German Sports Betting Association (DSWV).
Under the arrangement, the DSWV and IBIA will work in partnership and coordinate their activities on betting and related integrity issues in Germany.
