PlayUp doubles down against corruption in sport with U.S. Integrity partnership
Premium betting entertainment and technology company bolsters American-based offering with leading data monitoring supplier.
LAS VEGAS, NV (February 2021) – Strengthening its position as a category leader in the U.S., PlayUp today announced a strategic partnership with U.S. Integrity Inc. (USI), the leading data-driven analytics company which monitors match-fixing, game manipulation, and other unethical or illegal betting-related activity.
The agreement with USI will support PlayUp’s commitment in the U.S. to exhibit best practice compliance practices as it grows its U.S. operations. Already licensed in New Jersey and Colorado, PlayUp has aggressive growth plans for market access and the breadth of its product offering. The company is well regarded as a product, service and compliance thought leader in online sports betting, horse racing, and daily fantasy sports in Australia, New Zealand, in addition to its rapidly growing U.S. presence.
U.S. Integrity’s proprietary product analyzes dozens of data sets including account-level wagering detail – a unique differentiator that is delivered to USI directly from sportsbook partners – to proactively identify potentially suspicious wagering activity and irregular contest-level patterns for customers across the domestic sports betting market. In addition, the company provides technology services to leagues, teams, athletic conferences, and universities, as well as sportsbook operators.
Dr. Laila Mintas, PlayUp USA CEO, said “USI is the perfect partner to support our growth in the U.S. As a premium brand in the U.S., it’s important for us to align with the most forward-thinking partners. USI is doing very important work to safeguarding the integrity of sports competitions which is certainly a very high priority, and we are fully dedicated to work hand in hand with USI to safeguard sports from unethical or illegal activity.”
Matthew Holt, CEO and Co-Founder of U.S. Integrity, said his firm is always building on its alliances and data entry points to improve its standing in the industry and PlayUp will add to those efforts. “These are very bullish times for the sports betting industry in the U.S. PlayUp is a great example of how world-class international brands are coming to the U.S. We are excited about how we can learn from each other with this partnership.”
