IBIA website shows rogue advert of Asian online slots 

The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has suffered what appears to be either a hack or a coding error on its website. 

For a period of time, anyone visiting IBIA’s webpage to check for the latest updates was met with an out-of-place promotion of an online slots company clearly aimed towards South East Asian consumers. 

Not only was it strange to see such promotional content being shown by the IBIA, but the content itself was written in Indonesian and invited readers to venture into a market far away from the otherwise stringent compliance policies that IBIA and its members strive to fulfil

The advertisement in question was about a company called Slot Online Gacor 2023 and it read: “Through Gacor 2023 slots, you can play all the latest slot games using just one user ID via your device by relying on an internet connection. Online slots are one of the easiest slot games to play and do not require large capital or special skills to place bets. 

“Only the Gacor 2023 slot site guarantees victory for its players, by registering the alternative link for the 2023 Gacor slot which has 24-hour online service and certainly not many other Gacor slot sites have it.”

Upon further review, it became clear that Gacor 2023 doesn’t have proprietary games itself but rather acts as a portal that offers access to other companies’ portfolios. Some of the names used include high-profile slot developers like Habanero, Pragmatic Play, and Playtech among others. 

It was also explained to readers in detail that once they register with Gacor 2023, they can choose a variety of methods to make deposits and withdrawals, one of which is inputting credit card information. 

“Register by filling in the form…and your Gacor account ID has been created. Select the deposit menu if you want to bet using real money. Have a nice play!”, the message concluded. 

SBC News has asked the IBIA for a comment. While no such was provided, after being notified about the issue the IBIA acted swiftly to remove the promotion from its website.
