Sports Wagering Integrity Monitoring Association Chief Integrity Officer to Moderate Panel at Global Gaming Expo

The Sports Wagering Integrity Monitoring Association (SWIMA) announced today that its Chief Integrity Officer (CIO), George Rover, will be moderating a panel at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas, Nevada on ‘Sports Integrity from the Regulatory Point of View’ on Monday, October 14, 2019. SWIMA is a not-for-profit organization designed to detect and discourage fraud and other illegal or unethical activity related to betting on sporting events in the United States.

The panel discussion will address sports integrity from the state regulatory perspective, sharing lessons learned by states who have recently implemented sports betting post-PASPA, and discuss how to further enhance collaboration between and among regulators and operators. Rover will be joined on the panel with other experts in gaming from Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada and New Jersey.

“I am excited and honored to be moderating this panel discussion on a topic that is critical to the success of the sports gaming industry,” said George Rover, CIO for SWIMA. “I look forward to being joined by some of the key sports betting regulatory decisionmakers from across the country to discuss how state governments can develop systems and protocols that allow for the timely and effective sharing of information about suspicious betting activities across all jurisdictions and between all operators.”

Over the past 6 months since its launch, SWIMA has worked to develop strategic partnerships with other entities in the sports betting industry. These partnerships have allowed SWIMA to also share information regarding integrity and other potentially illegal conduct back to its members. The members of SWIMA, each represented on its Board of Delegates, include the following major sports betting operators in the United States:
