North Dakota State University has announced a partnership with ProhiBet, a betting integrity platform, to prevent prohibited wagering across our best sports betting sites and ensure adherence to state betting regulations.

Owned by IC360, the ProhiBet cross-monitoring and notification platform will ensure that wagers are not placed on the industry's best sports betting apps by individuals who are prohibited from betting according to state regulations, such as student-athletes, coaches, league officials, and other administration staff. 

"This partnership with IC360 provides sports betting monitoring and educational resources for our coaches, athletics department staff members and student-athletes,” said Matt Larsen, Director of Athletics at NDSU. “The ProhiBet platform will continuously monitor and detect wagering abnormalities. The dashboard will report real-time information, which in turn will ultimately protect NDSU Athletics.

"Sports betting is easily accessible to college students, and we want to do our best to protect and educate our student-athletes."

In addition to implementing the ProhiBet solution, IC360 will provide educational training and resources for student-athletes and staff through its e-learning platform. This comes roughly a month after IC360 partnered with Radar to enhance its geolocation services and better enforce its integrity monitoring services.

"We are thrilled to partner with North Dakota State University,” said Matt Heap, Managing Director of ProhiBet. “The combination of ProhiBet's state-of-the-art encrypted data transfer system and the NDSU dedication to upholding the integrity of sports will undoubtedly enhance the transparency and trustworthiness of sports betting activities."

Sports betting has been available in North Dakota since December 2021. However, it is currently available only at tribal gambling land-based venues across the state.

In 2021, state legislators rejected legislation that would allow a 2022 ballot measure for online sports betting and welcome the industry's best sportsbooks into the state. Consequently, there will not be a ballot or legislation for online sports betting through 2024 or 2025, respectively.
