Esports Entertainment Group Signs Affiliate Marketing Agreement with GOLeague, An International Esports League and Community

 

Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (GMBL: OTCQB) (or the “Company”), a licensed online gambling company with a specific focus on esports wagering and 18+ gaming, is pleased to announce the signing of an Affiliate Marketing Agreement with GOLeague Int. Gaming, a multilingual esports league and community for the games Counter-Strike: Go (CSGO), PubG and League of Legends.  As one of the largest CSGO leagues in Germany, this agreement is another milestone for VIE.gg, the world’s first and most transparent esports betting exchange.

Founded in 2017, with the specific goal of supporting and developing esports throughout Europe, GOLeague is the first public league for every skill group in CSGO and League of Legends, attracting 11,000 visitors per day.  The total prize money for their upcoming season has been set at €10,000. As a result of this Agreement, the Company expects to add approximately 350 CSGO matches per month to VIE.gg for GOLeague users to wager.

GOLeague is working with VIE.gg on an exclusive basis for the following reasons:

1.  The VIE.gg P2P model is much more attractive because an esports fan always wins, as opposed to a “house” model where odds are heavily stacked against fans.

2.  VIE.gg is the first and most transparent esports bet exchange as a result of Esports Entertainment Group being a fully reporting SEC issuer in the United States.

3.  Player safety features built into VIE.gg create a fun but responsible esports betting experience for fans. For example, players must choose their maximum bet amounts when they initially sign up with VIE.gg. Any subsequent increase to those levels requires a 30 day cooling off period to make sure players do not get carried away.

4.  The recent addition of pool betting is a further extension of the P2P model, which allows groups of opposing fans to wager against each other when their teams go head to head.

5.  Given the fact some esports fans bet on esports, GOLeague users will be provided with a safe platform that also supports the organization.

GOLeague stated, “In contrast to other German leagues, we are the only one who uses their own anti-cheat system and uses it successfully. We therefore also want to give our users the opportunity to bet on GOLeague matches, as well as, Major League matches with the upcoming season. This will be realized via the start page, an extra page with a sorted listing and under each single match link. For the implementation, we need a strong partner with the necessary licenses and age controls to successfully integrate this product. We are happy to say we found the right partner in VIE.  It is important for our users to know that affiliate revenue from GOLeague matches will be passed on to the teams. We therefore hope for a good and long-term partnership.”

Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports at Esports Entertainment Group, stated, “This agreement with GOLeague is a big step forward for VIE, as it will add hundreds of additional matches per month to our pools. GOLeague is a true supporter of esports in Europe and we are excited about building a long-term future together.”

 

ABOUT VIE.GG:

VIE.gg offers bet exchange style wagering on esports events in a licensed, regulated and secured platform to the global esports audience, excluding jurisdictions that prohibit online gambling. VIE.gg features wagering on the following esports games:

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO)

U.S. sportsbook will leverage Paysafe’s Income Access to launch affiliate marketing program across multiple states 

Paysafe, a leading specialized payments platform, today announced an expanded partnership with Betfred USA Sports, the wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of U.K.-based bookmaker Betfred Group. Building on an existing payments relationship, the deal sees Betfred USA Sports plug into the affiliate marketing software of Income Access, Paysafe’s marketing technology and services provider, for the upcoming launch of a multi-state affiliate program.

The announcement marks the expansion of a partnership through which Betfred USA Sports currently leverages the Skrill USA digital wallet1 for its Iowa online sportsbook, and credit and debit card payment processing via Paysafe’s best-in-breed payment gateway for its online sports-betting brand for the Colorado market. Both online gaming brands were unveiled in September 2020 and followed the launch of respective retail sportsbooks earlier that year.

With its market presence and strong brand recognition, Betfred USA Sports is positioned for continued growth in the regulated U.S. iGaming space. The launch, scheduled for later this year, of its Income Access-powered affiliate program will support that objective as the operator will utilize a robust reporting and tracking platform to nurture relationships with marketing partners in both the digital and retail space. The program is set to first launch in Colorado with additional states forthcoming.

Through its industry-leading technology, Income Access, winner of the EGR B2B Award for Affiliate Software Supplier for the last three years running, will help Betfred USA Sports strengthen its acquisition efforts across multiple regulated states. The platform will also allow the operator and its affiliates to collaborate more effectively in promoting a comprehensive range of wagering options across American and international sports.

Tara Wilson, Chief Operating Officer of Paysafe’s Income Access, said: “This expanded partnership is an incredible opportunity for Paysafe to build on our momentum in the U.S. market, while working to support our flagship American partner Betfred USA Sports’ long-term growth and success.  For Income Access, this marks another important step in showcasing our ability to drive meaningful collaboration between our partners and affiliates in the regulated U.S. sports-betting space.”

Bryan Bennett, Chief Operating Officer of Betfred USA Sports, commented: “As we continue to ramp-up our online operations across the U.S., Paysafe and Income Access are valuable tools to meet customer needs while tracking and scaling our affiliate marketing program. We look forward to continuing the relationship as we eye our launches in new jurisdictions.”

Nominated for the Affiliate Program of the year at the Global Gaming Awards, the 1xBet Team reveals how the bookmaker has built a 30,000-strong network of healthy partnerships across the globe, with each 1xBet Partner receiving feedback and exclusive promotional materials to ensure they accurately represent the 1xBet brand of quality and success.

 

iGT: How important are affiliates to the betting industry and, in particular, 1xBet?

1xBet Team: The mechanics of affiliate programs make affiliates a vital part of any industry. Betting is no exception because also, thanks to partners, brands manage to increase growth rates. This is quantifiable, with key indicators being new users, deposits, player activity.

We have great respect for the 1xBet affiliate program participants who introduce their audience to our brand. We have more than 30 thousand partners from all over the world on our side, and this list includes both the owners of huge sites and novice bloggers, for example.

The contribution of each affects the results that we achieve. Therefore, a partnership is a two-way road. After all, we, in turn, offer affiliates favourable terms of cooperation.

 

iGT: What is the key to a successful affiliate program?

1xBet Team: Today, the number of affiliate programs is growing, including among bookmakers, and you need to be able to stand out. How to do it? There may be different approaches here: someone offers high commission rates, someone has an original approach to communication, and someone invents new models of cooperation.

We constantly evaluate our work in the area of ​​partnership programs. Our positive results are reflected in victories and nominations at prestigious awards. For example, this year, we were nominated for the Affiliate Program of the year at the Global Gaming Awards. This is a good sign that we are continuing to move in the right direction.

 

iGT: How has 1xBet assisted its affiliates to overcome challenges and reach their target markets?

1xBet Team: An affiliate program is a good opportunity to make your project profitable. For many of our affiliates, working with us is their primary source of income.

1xBet Team: We have received many positive messages from affiliates. 2021 is turning out to be a great year because it’s been an exciting sports season: the Euro, the Olympics and dozens of other events. Therefore, we prepared various large promotions for all these activities.

This allowed partners to monetise their traffic, and for us – to introduce new users, who could bet on their favourite sports, to this feast of sporting action.

Let’s not forget that 1xBet is also a prominent player in the esports arena. We have major agreements with ESL and WePlay, an excellent range of betting options, plus attractive promotions dedicated to top tournaments. This only expanded the potential for cooperation with us, especially for those sites that do not gravitate towards sports.

In short, the partners are excited about how things are going in 2021. We are too.

 

iGT: How do you plan to continue to support and help grow your affiliates in the future?

1xBet Team: We have a number of ideas on how to make our affiliate program even better. Of course, we are constantly working on improving what we have, but we also have new ideas in our plans.
