History

In 1999, few individuals working within lotteries setup an independent sharing-information system on sports betting, named “Matchinfo”. This voluntary cooperation led to the setup of a monitoring system which started informally in 2005 when the European Lotteries Association signed a MoU with UEFA. ELMS (European Lottery Monitoring System) was then officially created in 2009. In 2012 following a proposal of WLA, a working-expert group was created to prepare the globalisation of ELMS, which became effective in January 2015 and went live as 1 June 2015.

Mission and Partners

  • With the development of online technologies since the turn of the century, sport betting online and in real time has become such a mainstream. Modern sport betting has brought many new possibilities, yet high associated risks. GLMS acts as a catalyst to identify and mitigate those risks.

  • Through close cooperation of its members and with full time dedicated operators, GLMS detects irregularities on the sports betting markets and share alerts with sport governing bodies. GLMS is also committed to work upon request with gaming authorities and other law enforcement stakeholders.

  • Reports are made regularly to international sports governing bodies, FIFA and UEFA for football, and through a strong partnership with the International Olympic Committee overlooking at many sports.
