Parimatch has transformed from a bookmaker trading out of physical stores to a cutting-edge online sports betting platform which currently boasts over 2.6 million customers. With this level of growth comes great responsibility. Regulation is a key component of the Parimatch business, as it protects our customers by setting transparent and reliable rules when it comes to betting and gaming.
Parimatch’s Chief Compliance Officer Yuriy Shevchuk explains:
Whilst Parimatch is proud to be daring and different, we don’t push the boundaries when it comes to compliance. We currently hold nine gaming licenses across six separate jurisdictions on four continents. The fast-changing nature of the betting and gaming industry means that we make every effort to keep up-to-date with regulatory change across all geographies we operate in, by consistently communicating with best practice licensors and licensees, even where we might not have a license ourselves, in order to stay ahead of the game.
At Parimatch, it is my responsibility to maintain our reputation as a responsible business amongst our customers, partners and most importantly regulators. This reputation must evolve from within the business itself, which is why department heads, customer facing teams and Parimatch senior management all attend workshops and training sessions to streamline our approach to compliance and subsequently maximise the customer experience. Protecting Parimatch’s licence to operate, and the needs of our customers, is the backbone of our business.
