International sports betting : integrity, deviance, governance and policy / ed. by Jean-Patrick Villeneuve... [et al.]

Villeneuve, Jean-Patrick

Edited by Routledge. London - 2019

With the development of communication technologies, sport betting has become a truly global phenomenon. Far from the traditional small local betting operator, the current dynamic sees vast sums of money being bet by punters in one country to a betting operator located in a second for a match located in yet another jurisdiction. As a consequence, the development of deviances, from match-fixing to money laundering has accelerated. This new reality has numerous implications, for the regulation of this billion dollar industry as well as for the very integrity of sport, sport financing and betting operations.
