The Puerto Rico Gaming Commission granted regular sports betting licenses to nine companies, which will expand the industry on the island with “current information and guarantees of the integrity of the bets,” Commission Executive Director Jaime Rivera-Emmanuelli said.
He added that the commission accepted the recommendation of the Sports Betting Bureau to authorize two licenses for sports betting operators. The remaining licenses correspond to service providers that serve the operating companies.
One of the newcomers is the International Betting Integrity Association, a company that offers an anti-corruption monitoring tool designed to identify and report suspicious bets in authorized markets. The tool uses specific consumer data to detect potential instances of corruption.
