Sporting Group, the parent company of sportsbook services and systems supplier Sporting Solutions, has obtained a World Lottery Association (WLA) – ‘Security Control Standard (WLA-SCS) certification’.
The WLA accreditation marks an important milestone for the company, which during 2018 has extended its suite of pricing and risk management provisions for the global lotteries sector, securing several new client operators, including Danish state-owned gambling firm Danske Spil.
Updating investors, Simon Trim, Chief Executive of the Sporting Group, said: “We’re delighted to announce the attainment of our WLA-SCS certification during the World Lottery Summit in Argentina.
“Our longstanding partnerships with several WLA members are founded on the highest standards of trust, integrity and operational excellence. This accreditation recognises that our procedures for data and information security are among the best in a sector facing unprecedented levels of competition and regulatory & public scrutiny.”
Moving forward, the certification will support Sporting Group’s continued development of its unique solution for highly automated Risk Adjusted Pricing, which is designed to deliver a superior player experience, improve both welfare insight and margin on turnover for operators and reduce the non-scalable operational cost pressure that its partners incur.
Ed Peace, Head of Commercial at Sporting Solutions, said: “Achieving this certification is a significant milestone, and with it, our message is clear. Working in partnership with lotteries we will deliver a service that has the security and welfare of the player at its heart but reconciles this with a market-leading customer experience, increased profit certainty and bottom-line growth.”
