11VAC5-70-230(C) Sports governing bodies should receive account-level betting information

Virginia’s sports betting law requires permit holders to cooperate with sports governing bodies’ investigations, including the provision of account-level betting information, and audio and video files. See Virginia Lottery Law; Sports Betting Section 58.1-4043(E). As the Board is aware, this information will be important to the resolution of sports betting investigations. As written, however, the Board’s draft regulations only require regulated entities to provide account-level betting information and data files to the Executive Director and law enforcement agencies. To better reflect the language and intent of the statute, we urge the Board to amend this provision as follows:


C. A regulated entity shall provide or facilitate provision of account-level betting information and data files relating to individuals placing wagers and any other information necessary for investigations conducted by the Director, a sports governing body, or a law enforcement agency.
