Esports Entertainment Group Inc (OTCQB:GMBL) welcomed Alan Alden, general secretary of the Malta Remote Gaming Council, to its board of directors.

“Alan’s experience in finance, gambling and regulatory matters make him uniquely qualified as a board member for our company. We are excited to have him join our Board, as he will be a major asset in our future plans,” said Esports CEO Grant Johnson in the company’s press release.

The company operates Vie.gg, a betting exchange platform which allows fans to wager on a variety of esports games, including Call of Duty, Overwatch, League of Legends and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Fans are able to bet against each other rather than betting against the house.

The company recently signed a marketing agreement with e-sports betting-comparison site SickOdds, which will showcase its exchange.

Shares of the Antigua-based company dipped about 7% to $0.61 in Friday morning trading.
