The Esports Integrity Coalition has announced that GameCo Inc. has joined the ESIC to promote gaming regulation with eSports and casinos.
GameCo Inc. is creator of the world’s first video game gambling machines, and knows more than a few things about gambling in the world of video games and eSports. With the company's knowledge the ESIC hopes to improve its anti-corruption education program and produce an interactive online tutorial on match-fixing, betting fraud and other threats to eSports integrity.
Esports Integrity Commissioner Ian Smith said, “We are delighted that GameCo has decided to join ESIC. GameCo operates at the juncture between esports and betting, and embracing integrity efforts in this early stage of its operations speaks to the company’s impeccable ethos and values and its determination to get things right from day one, not just for itself, but for the wider community in which it operates.”
GameCo Co-Founder and CEO, Blaine Graboyes added, “We developed the concept for video game gambling from our experience in producing esports events for major publishers. There’s a massive opportunity to evolve casinos into VIP destinations for gamers, and solid industry regulations and standards will be critical to this experience. GameCo looks forward to contributing to ESIC to advance our shared goals.”
