Esports Entertainment Group partner with Epsilon & GOLeague; GameWorks updateHere is a trio of Esports-related news stories with two from Esports Entertainment Group’s back alley, and one from the land of SCCG Management.

The Esports Entertainment Group (VIE) has inked a deal with the Belgium-based Esports organisation Epsilon. VIE hopes the agreement will see Epsilon’s fanbase migrate to the betting exchange.

Founded a decade ago, Epsilon has vast experience in the Esports industry and has award-winning teams spread throughout Europe and North America competing in Esports such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive; Gears Call of Duty; FIFA; and H1Z1 KoH.

In October, Epsilon hit the headlines after partnering with the reigning English Premier League Champions, Manchester City, during the FIFA competition during the Gfinity Elite Series.

It’s not the only deal that VIE has dug out of their fingernails with a Stanley knife this week. The deal-strikers in VIE have also signed an affiliate marketing agreement with the international Esports league and community: GOLeague.

Founded in 2017, GOLeague is one of the largest CS:GO leagues in Germany, with 11,000 visitors daily. Under the terms of the deal, 350 CS:GO matches transfer to the VIE platform allowing players to wager on the events safely. Outside of CS:GO, GOLeague also host League of Legends and Player’s Unknown Battleground (PubG) leagues.

The VIE platform allows exchange-style betting across the following formats:

• Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO)
• League of Legends
• Dota 2
• Call of Duty
• Overwatch
• PUBG
• Hearthstone
• StarCraft II

VIE holds licenses with the Kahnawake Gaming Commission in Canada, and the only places uninhabitable by VIE are the USA, Europe, Curacao, and the Netherlands. GOLeague is the third league, globally to agree on an affiliate deal with VIE, and that number is expected to rise as the months die away in 2019.

GameWorks Partners With SCCG Management 

Las Vegas Casinos are about to get an Esports makeover courtesy of a partnership between GameWorks Inc., and SCCG Management.

GameWorks is an entertainment and dining experience with millennials, teens and families locked in the crosshairs. SCCG Management is a full-service management consultancy created by Stephen A. Crystal, with one eye on bringing Esports to the land-based casino industry.

The partnership sees a new venue based concept called Play by GameWorks offered to Las Vegas casinos, where the new dalliance will require 10-12 square foot of space to plug in 20-40 PCs and consoles. Play facilities will contain the top 100 gaming titles in the world, and also a 100-seater restaurant called The Works Kitchen at GameWorks delivering a dining experience that meets the needs of millennials and teenagers.

Frozen pizza it is then. ​
