Esports Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:GMBL) is partnering up with the majority owners of the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Devils to offer player-to-player e-sports betting.

The Malta-based gaming company reached a multi-year agreement with Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, owner of the e-sports organization Dignitas in addition to the Sixers and Devils, to provide gambling through the website VIE.gg.

With the Dignitas partner VIE.gg, users can gamble on League of Legends, Call of Duty and a variety of other games. The player-to-player model means a user always wins, as opposed to gamblers competing against a casino.

Last year, Dignitas won the Rocket League Championship Series, a e-sports game in which users play virtual soccer with rocket-powered cars as players.

“I am very proud of this new partnership with HBSE and their Dignitas esports brand, which is founded in our shared common beliefs of player safety above all else,” CEO Grant Johnson said. “I look forward to sharing our incredible product with Dignitas’ highly engaged fan base over the next three years and beyond. For Esports Entertainment Group, a partnership of this calibre is a significant milestone for our shareholders and tremendous validation of both our P2P esports wagering model and future plans within the esports world.”
