The research found that Australian sports data is necessary for the development of offshore wagering markets, that the sale of unofficial sports data to offshore wagering service providers (WSPs) creates a risk to sport integrity, and that the products offered do not provide consumer protections in line with regulatory standards in Australia. Sports bettors who used offshore WSPs were more likely to engage in problematic betting behaviour compared to sports bettors who did not use offshore WSPs.
