Matthew Holt, the co-founder and chief executive officer of U.S. Integrity, made his maiden appearance on the Gaming News Canada Show presented by Osler, Hoskin and Harcourt LLP. Holt delved into a busy past two-plus years for the company in providing integrity monitoring services to professional sports leagues, and U.S. college sports conferences and athletic departments, along with importance of regulated sports betting in identifying integrity and criminality problems. Holt also discussed his company’s partnership with Odds On Compliance to create Prohibet, an integrity and compliance product. 

Joining Holt was Sebastian Jedrzejewski, who just left his senior policy advisor position with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario to come on board U.S. Integrity as director of regulatory affairs. Both Jedrzejewski and his new boss discussed the opportunities for the company in Ontario’s regulated marketplace along with the work U.S. Integrity and other organizations like the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is doing around educating athletes about sports betting and match manipulation. PointsBet Canada executive Nic Sulsky, who sits with Holt on the board of directors for the Fantasy Sports & Gaming Association, also participated in the segment with the U.S. Integrity folks.

Regular contributors Amanda Brewer, Kris Abbott and Phill Gray all weighed in on last week’s announcement by Kindred Group to pull its business out of Ontario and U.S. states where it has been operating. The trio also discussed the challenges for European-based operators coming into Ontario.
