Esports Entertainment Group Inc., the focused esports gambling company, has announced the signing of over 60 affiliate esports streamers at Gamescom 2017.
As affiliates of the company, these streamers will be able to monetise their respective audiences by earning commissions on all esports gambling customers registering and playing with the Esports Entertainment Group.
Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group stated: “Gamescom 2017 far surpassed our expectations. The overwhelming response from esports streamers has served as further confirmation that our position as the safest, most secure and transparent esports betting platform on the planet will be very well accepted. We are excited as we are set to launch with all of our new affiliate partners.”
Esports Entertainment Group exhibited in a 10×20 booth at the Cologne based event. The company demonstrated its esports betting platform for potential streamers and customers, which played a significant role in their signings. Gamescom 2017 went down as the the largest consumer gaming conference in the world, with approximately 900 exhibitors, 350,000 visitors and 650 journalists from 106 countries attending this year.
The betting exchange is yet to launch and holds a gambling license in Curacao. As a result, it will be unable to operate in jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom, where a license must be obtained from the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (“UKGC”). From the company’s accounts, the ultimate aim is to convert a desolate casino in Antigua to an esports hub of sorts through money generated through the betting platform it’s set to launch.
Esports Insider says: That’s a whole lot of affiliates signed up pre-launch, so it’ll be interesting to see how this carries over. Generally, “esports streamers” don’t actually exist other than professional players who are often already bound by team sponsorship obligations so it’ll be interesting to see who they’ve got on board. One would assume it’s streamers with a lot of eyes anyway, so it could work out well.
