Curacao-based esports bookmaker Cyber.Bet has pledged its allegiance to the Esports Integrity Commission.
Cyber.Bet’s alliance with ESIC sees it “joining the battle” against match-fixing and other forms of corruption in betting.
As well as offering betting services in three languages, Cyber.Bet hosts esports events across Asia, Europe, and Latin America. As an anti-corruption supporter with ESIC, the bookmaker will provide information to the commission that can aid with initiating and conducting investigations into possible integrity breaches.
A representative for Cyber.Bet spoke on the decision in a release: “Joining the Esports Integrity Commission is another big step for Cyber.Bet to become one of the most reliable and respectful esports bookmakers. For us, it is not only an honor but also a very important collaboration with such an experienced and reputable organization.
“Since we are not just a bookmaker but a part of big esports community and also tournament organizers, we are deeply interested in keeping our events and the esports industry clean from match fixing and other undesirable factors.”
Ian Smith, Commissioner of the Esports Integrity Commission, also commented: “It is an honour to welcome Cyber.bet as an Anti-Corruption Supporter of ESIC. By joining ESIC as an Anti-Corruption Supporter, Cyber.bet has displayed its commitment to playing its part in maintaining the integrity of esports.
“Cyber.bet joins a long list of Anti-Corruption Supporters who together make it easier for ESIC to investigate suspicious betting activity, assisting in our mission to fight cheating and betting fraud in the esports industry. We look forward to working with Cyber.bet to continue to protect the integrity of esports.”
Esports Insider says: ESIC has proven that it’s willing to action when it has the information needed, and that leads to actionable results. Having the support of bookmakers is pivotable in its ability to help combat threats to integrity, so we applaud Cyber.Bet for getting involved!
