Esports Entertainment Group Signs Affiliate Marketing Agreement with Global Speedrun Association

Esports Entertainment Group, Inc., 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 Global Speedrun Association (“GSA”), which hosts and administrates races on a broad variety of speedrun games, most notably Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Odyssey, across their three Twitch channels.  As the first platform to offer wagering for speedrunning, this agreement is another milestone for vie.gg, the world’s first and most transparent esports betting exchange.

GLOBAL SPEEDRUNNING COMMUNITY GROWING RAPIDLY

GSA is a relatively new company dedicated to pushing speedrunning into the mainstream and helping speedrunners achieve the same success that esports athletes now enjoy.  Despite its relatively recent entrance into the speedrunning space, GSA has generated impressive traffic with 860,000 views from 3 Twitch.tv channels over the last 30 days.  More importantly, GSA is growing rapidly and this partnership with VIE.gg will only serve to help accelerate that growth.

The global speedrunning community is growing at a very fast pace, with single events raising over $2,000,000 for charity in 2018, and is expected to continue growing at a very rapid pace for years to come. As the premier P2P betting platform for speedrunning, VIE now gives fans the ability to be on their favourite players, which will serve to broaden the fan base and their attention times, as well as, help attract the top players in the world, including top esports players with an affinity for speedrunning.

Brian Cordry, Head of Esports at Esports Entertainment Group, stated, “Groups like GSA help raise the standard of production quality and push speedrunning forward. We love speedrunners and we love what GSA is doing. I expect speedrunning to grow exponentially and that is why it is so important for Esports Entertainment Group to partner with the likes of GSA for the long term. Together, we will help push speedrunning to the heights that esports is currently achieving.”

Steven Adams, Chief Executive Officer at Global Speedrun Association stated, “GSA is the premier organized speedrunning league and our goal is to increase the consistent quality of our broadcasts and competitions by working with VIE in 2018 and beyond.  The key differences this relationship will make are being able to fund larger prize pools for our leagues and tournaments to catalyze higher levels of competition, as well as, attracting and compensating key people that make our broadcasts so entertaining, such as great commentators, video editors and other GSA staff who will be able to increase the output and quality of their productions. Working together will help push speedrunning to new heights and help grow this budding sector of the video game industry, which will lead to betting growth on VIE. Looking forward to the future!”

Good Game Limited offloads esports news site

 

The affiliate company behind Bojoko.com sells Eurheilu.com to Esports Media Solutions for an undisclosed sum

 

Good Game Limited, the online casino affiliate organisation behind popular comparison site Bojoko.com, has sold its esports news asset Eurheilu.com for an undisclosed sum.

The site has been purchased by Esports Media Solutions and will allow Good Game to reinvest and fully focus on driving growth in Bojoko.

Eurheilu.com was launched in early 2016 and is updated daily with news, features, interviews, streams and guides about the thriving esports industry.

It has proved particularly popular among enthusiasts in Finland and other Nordic countries as esports continues to grow rapidly across the region.

Aleksi Halsas, co-founder of Esports Media Solutions, said: “Our Eurheilu.com acquisition supports our strategy in Finland well and we are extremely excited about the opportunities it presents us.”

The sale of Eurheilu.com comes a little over a year after Good Game sold its network of Finnish online casino comparison sites to XLMedia for a total consideration of €15 million.

Good Game now operators just one site, Bojoko.com, which is being positioned as the Trip Advisor of the online casino world.

Bojoko, which was launched in 2017, allows operators and suppliers to upload their own listings with players able to leave their own ratings and reviews.

It has proved a hugely popular concept with operators, suppliers and players alike, with more than 320 casinos and suppliers listed to date.

Joonas Karhu, chief business officer at Good Game Limited, said: “We have spent the past few years building Eurheilu.com into a popular and thriving esports information site and community.

“But as we continue to invest more time and resources into establishing Bojoko as the most popular online casino comparison site in the UK and beyond, the time was right to sell the brand.

“We are thrilled that Esports Media Solutions will be running the site moving forwards as their passion and expertise will take it to the next level.”
