Athens-listed operator and gaming supplier Intralot has been named as associate member of the Global Lottery Monitoring System, the system used by state lotteries to combat sports-related corruption.

Intralot will receive summaries of global GLMS alerts and have access to its education and prevention tools, as well as the information network that GLMS has in place for its members.

The company is the second lottery supplier to become an associate member of the GLMS, alongside Scientific Games.

“Intralot, by supporting GLMS, the global lotteries’ sports integrity body, through the associate membership programme, has shown its solid commitment to the development and well-being of sport investing through the lottery sector, as well as in innovative and responsible sports betting operations,” said GLMS president Ludovico Calvi.

“We warmly welcome Intralot in the GLMS family and we are looking forward to welcoming further GLMS associate members in the near future.”

Intralot Group chief commercial officer Nikos Nikolakopoulos commented: "Being aware of the remarkable recent growth of GLMS and recognising its importance and value for the lottery sector, Intralot as a traditional sports betting technology and services vendor, is thrilled to be part of such a significant initiative of the global lottery movement.

“We are delighted to join GLMS and we look forward to getting involved and taking pride in contributing to the further growth and success of GLMS and the safeguarding of integrity in sports through such institutional initiatives.”
