Under the terms of the extended partnership between the duo, H2 will continue to deliver official betting market data for IBIA. Moreover, IBIA will also benefit from H2’s leading database which consists of approximately 2 million data points from more than 175 gambling jurisdictions in over 100 countries around the world.

The study included a ranking and was compiled thanks to data collected from more than 20 globally recognized betting operators.
