Paul Klomp of Zeturf group commented on the news: “I am very pleased that we have entered into this international cooperation between leading operators of sports betting.
“The integrity of sports and especially those we offer bets on is key for offering a solid betting product. With our experiences in the industry for many years, we are convinced that we can add value to the association.”
The IBIA network consists of over 40 operators and 100 betting brands from around the world, with its members reporting a combined $137bn in betting turnover per year – making up around half of all regulated commercial operator online betting activity.
Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, said of Zeturf joining the organisation: “IBIA is delighted to welcome Zeturf group to the association’s growing membership.
“The operator expands IBIA’s international coverage of regulated horseracing – and sports betting markets and reinforces the association’s place as the leading betting integrity monitor. Zeturf brings a distinct operational approach and coverage that will bolster IBIA’s global monitoring and alert network.”
Zeturf is a sports horseracing and betting operator which holds licences in Malta, France, Spain, Belgium, Nigeria and the Netherlands. Furthermore, it is currently in the process of being acquired by La Française des Jeux (FDJ).
The sportsbook has around 100 employees and recorded €800m ($800.8m) in bets in 2021, including over €100m in B2B bets. Online bets on horseracing accounted for 50% of all wagers in 2021 at Zebet, meaning the operator had a 20% market share in the online horserace betting sector.
