In a significant new development in the world of online sports betting, 888sport has become the latest operator to join the integrity body ESSA.
Now, 888sport has joined the likes of Bet365, bwin, Ladbrokes Coral, Paddy Power Betfair, Unibet and William Hill as part of ESSA.
ESSA’s primary objective is to safeguard the interest of customers across the world from potential fraud via manipulation of sporting events. The integrity body looks after the interests of almost 40 millions punters in the EU alone at the moment.

“Joining ESSA is a key part of that approach and to maintaining the high standards of responsible gambling that we are committed to.”
Khalid Ali, secretary general of ESSA, added:
“The operator is a leading player in the industry and I am delighted that it has joined ESSA; it is the perfect start to 2017 and builds upon a very successful 2016 both in terms of membership growth and the association’s ability to protect its regulated members from betting-related fraud.
“888sport will now add its unique customer base and betting market platforms to our global anti-fraud alert and reporting system.”
