American casino operator Penn National Gaming has announced that they've signed an agreement with US Integrity, which will help strengthen its betting integrity services for sportsbetting events.
The agreement will see Penn National's US and Canadian operating sites getting access to the integrity services. This will see betting patterns, irregular contest levels, and officiating concerns being pointed out and reported through a dashboard at the books. This will help each location ensure that bets and events are played fairly, without match-fixing.
"We are excited to be working with U.S. Integrity as we continue to expand our industry-leading brands Barstool Sportsbook and theScore Bet across the regulated U.S. and Canadian markets," said Penn National Chief Compliance Officer Chris Soriano. "USI's commitment to maintaining integrity as well as their proactive approach will play a pivotal role in detecting and sharing any potentially suspicious wagering activity."
USI CEI Matthew Holt also commented, adding: "U.S. Integrity is proud to partner with Penn National and assist as they grow their brands across the U.S. and Canadian regulated sports wagering markets.
"USI's mission is to provide conflict-free, best in class insights & compliance solutions to our clients. We are looking forward to working with the exceptional team at Penn National; all our partners are committed to the highest integrity standards, and they are no exception.
"These types of partnerships help ensure sports betting integrity and strengthen the unique & proprietary anomaly detection tools we have developed at U.S. Integrity."
The service will be rolled out to individual books under the Penn National umbrella in the near future.
