Preventing Fraud & Shaping the Future of Sports Betting Verification

From iGaming to online casinos to sports betting and more, the world of online gaming can offer fun, excitement and camaraderie. But it also offers new opportunities for fraudulent activity, which is why EVS is committed to shaping the future of sports betting verification. Our team recently attended the annual SBC Summit North America, where we met with more than 5,000 other delegates, 1,200 operators, and 500 affiliates to help ensure a secure and trustworthy betting environment. 

Let’s take a look at how the sports betting industry has evolved, the particular security challenges it faces, and what EVS is doing to promote iGaming and sports betting security. 

The Evolution of Online Gaming & Sports Betting

Since The Supreme Court ruled to legalize sports betting in 2018, the iGaming and sports betting industry has gained massive online traction, and it shows no sign of slowing down. Innovations like parlays, which allow users to combine multiple wagers into a single bet, along with improved in-game betting products and more targeted personalization, have exponentially increased the sports betting visibility and experience.
