ESIC and Cyber.Bet in the battle against match-fixing

ESIC was established in 2015 to deal with the important issues of betting fraud and match-fixing. We have recently covered the severity of the corruption plaguing the esports industry and ESIC provides a path towards the correct outcome. Prominent members include Blast Premier, ESL and Dreamhack as well as a plethora of betting anti-corruption supporters like Betway, Unikrn, Rivalry and Arcanebet.

Among notable endeavors are the development of an Anti-Corruption Code and Anti-Doping Code specifically set to battle these important issues plaguing the esports ecosystem. In regards to Cyber.bet and this latest partnership, the Commissioner of ESIC, Ian Smith stated:

“It is an honor 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.”

Cyber.bet shared a similar sentiment in their own statement:

“Joining the Esports Integrity Commission is another big step for Cyber.Bet to become one of the most reliable and respectful esports bookmakers.”

Cyber.bet is already an established esports bookmaker. On top of that, they regularly support and organize tournaments fashioned Cyber.bet Cups. The newest one is the Cyber.bet Summer Cup 2020 and it’s currently ongoing. It is welcoming news that behind the event stands a company committed to preserving and nurturing strong competitive integrity.

We sincerely hope even more organizations will follow Cyber.bet’s example and commit to fight cheating and betting fraud soon.
