Twain Sport, the newly launched live sport vertical from the Hybrid Sports League and BetGames, has partnered with Sportradar to integrate its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) into its hybrid sports tournaments.
The partnership will enable Twain Sport to promise its tier-one operator partners the world’s very best in integrity and fraud detection – with the same system deployed across the likes of UEFA, the NBA and the NHL.
Sportradar’s UFDS is considered the industry’s premium integrity bet monitoring service, identifying betting-related manipulation in sport, made possible by the product’s proprietary algorithms and constantly maintained database of odds, leveraged to detect match-fixing.
By tracking odds changes and liquidity across a wide range of markets, the UFDS is in an unrivalled position to detect irregular betting patterns in real-time.
Set to be deployed with Twain Sports’ League launch on the first of August with T-Basket, and all other future games, the integrity partnership will include auditing of the League, its rules and concepts and monitoring of every single match played.
Athlete education is also set to be introduced and will see a comprehensive induction in the integrity standards expected of all those involved.
Commenting on the launch, BetGames’ CEO Andreas Koeberl said: “The highest level of integrity has always been the foundation of our new betting offering. We see the integration of Sportradar’s industry leading FDS into Twain Sport as key layer of integrity on behalf of our operator partners – ensuring we offer the very best live sports product on the market.
“Promising high-frequency betting and low-spend extended playing sessions, we’re confident that Twain Sport will prove transformative in the industry and we can’t wait until the action kicks off in August.”
Andreas Krannich, Managing Director, Sportradar Integrity Services, added: “UFDS is the world’s best system to monitor and analyse the worldwide betting market for suspicious betting patterns. Using it, we support integrity in sport, law enforcement and state authorities to monitor, detect and analyse betting-related manipulation and other types of corruption.
“The extensive UFDS historical database and our unmatched experience mean that we are uniquely positioned to analyse and report on any relevant matter related to suspicious activity. We’re sure that with Twain Sport, we can now promise its products will be protected by some of the world’s most advanced technology.”
Set to launch with T-Basket in August 2022 and backed by some of the industry’s leading brands, Twain Sport will offer short-form, live-action across a range of custom-built arenas in selected European locations.
Created to bridge the gap in demand for increased live sport with a high-frequency entertainment format, Twain Sport will deliver head-to-head tournaments every hour – with a match every three minutes, totalling 6300 monthly.
