Esports Entertainment Group Inc (OTCQB:GMBL), a licensed online gambling company, announced Monday that it is forging an online wagering partnership with Epsilon eSports, an online e-sports gaming company.
Founded in 2008, Epsilon is an e-sports organization headquartered in Belgium, with teams based across Europe and North America who compete in games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Gears Call of Duty and FIFA.
Epsilon will be the first tier-1 esports organization to partner with Esports’ VIE.gg esports betting platform.
“As our first Tier-1 esports team partnership, today marks a significant milestone for VIE and we look forward to great success together,” said Grant Johnson, Esports CEO in a statement.
Epsilon is a leader in console esports, with multiple Call of Duty European championships, as well as a Smite World championship. Epsilon is a highly-international organization, with players and members from over 20 different nations.
Gregory Champagne, CEO of Epsilon eSports, is similarly bullish on the tie-up.
“It is with great pride that today Epsilon partners with VIE.gg. This is a whole different ball game, the first betting exchange platform where players challenge other players,” Champagne said in a statement.
VIE.gg offers bet exchange style wagering on esports events in a licensed, regulated and secured platform. It is the first and most transparent esports bet exchange as a result of Esports Entertainment Group being a fully-reporting SEC issuer in the US.
Esports Entertainment Group Inc. is a licensed online gambling company with a focus on esports wagering and gaming for adults.
