Greek lottery and gaming provider Intralot has joined FIFA's Early Warning System (EWS) to help protect the integrity of competitions.

Intralot will share information on irregular and suspicious betting patterns with FIFA through the Early Warning System to help prevent attempted manipulation of games, match-fixing and other forms of corruption.

This expands the existing agreement between Intralot's betting business and EWS signed in 2008, taking in all 54 regulated jurisdictions in which Intralot offers its services.

"Our new agreement with EWS at group level, is the continuation of the excellent cooperation we have established since 2008, when Intralot subsidiary 'Betting Company' joined EWS' international network of partners," said Intralot Group deputy chief executive Socrates Kokkalis.

"Transparency and integrity are Intralot Group's core values and we are very proud to be part of a global alliance that actively safeguards them."

Shares in Intralot SA (Co. Data) (ASE:INLOT) were trading up 2.5 per cent at €1.23 in Athens early Thursday.
