The Racing Trust Mark Committee formally approved today the application of Isle of Man based It is the first betting website based in this gaming jurisdiction to sign up.

Ed Comins, Chief Operating Officer of European Wagering Services, who own and operate Link2Bet, is delighted with the new partnership: “We are a specialist pari-mutuel distribution company and we aim to sign up with more tote operators in North America and Europe to increase our offer to our customers. The Racing Trust Mark is a welcome tool to demonstrate our reliability to the tote community.”

“This new signing is particularly important to us”, says IFHA’s Executive Director Maurits Bruggink, ”because it shows that operators based in off-shore gambling jurisdictions can subscribe to the basic principles of fair trade as well. We expect a strong growth in the coming years of cross border betting into foreign pools (also know as commingling). It will be an attractive market for online distributors, for whom the Racing Trust Mark will be an important asset.”
