GLMS joins the National Council on Problem Gambling

The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has today joined the National Council on Problem Gambling as a Silver Member. GLMS has been closely following the significant work of NCPG in leading US national stakeholders in the development of comprehensive policies and programs for all those affected by problem gambling. Following the recent PASPA-repeal and the legalization of sports betting in many US states, the NCPG is now able to address issues, which relate to Sports Integrity and Ethics.

Commenting on this development, GLMS President, Ludovico Calvi states: “I am delighted that GLMS is now a member of the NCPG as I always felt that the two organisations share the same core values when it comes to Social Responsibility, Ethics and integrity. We are looking forward to closely working with the NCPG and also join forces with the objective of disseminating a culture of integrity among key private and public stakeholders in the US, including all major sport leagues and licensed US gaming operators.”

Executive Director of NCPG, Keith Whyte, has added “I am proud and honoured to welcome such a prominent Global Sport Integrity Association, as GLMS, in the NCPG. I am convinced that GLMS will be an extremely active and valuable member which – due to its expertise on all sports betting-related matters – will help NCPG to expand our Safer Sports Betting Initiative to help achieve the highest standards of responsible gaming and sports betting integrity in the US and beyond.”
