Esports-dedicated bookmaker Cyber.bet has joined the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), the body established to fight match-fixing in the sport, as an anti-corruption supporter.
Established in 2019, the bookmaker offers betting services in four languages, in addition to holding its own esports tournaments in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
ESIC works with bookmakers, professional esports players and teams, corporations, governments, and anti-corruption supporters, in order to protect the integrity of professional esports and reduce the risk of match fixing and betting fraud.
Cyber.bet today (17 June) becomes ESIC’s latest anti-corruption supporter from the gaming industry, joining esports-dedicated operators such as Unikrn, Rivalry and Esportsbetting.com, alongside more traditional bookmakers such as Betway and SkyBet.
ESIC commissioner Ian Smith said: “It is an honour to welcome Cyber.bet as an anti-corruption supporter of ESIC. By joining, […] Cyber.bet has displayed its commitment to playing its part in maintaining the integrity of esports.”
“Cyber.bet joins a long list of anti-corruption supporters who together make it easier for ESIC to investigate suspicious betting activity, assisting in our mission to fight cheating and betting fraud in the esports industry. We look forward to working with Cyber.bet to continue to protect the integrity of esports.”
Cyber.bet described its ESIC membership as a step towards becoming “one of the most reliable and respectful esports bookmakers”.
“For us, it is not only an honor but also a very important collaboration with such an experienced and reputable organisation,” the operator said. “Since we are not just a bookmaker but a part of big esports community and also tournament organizers, we are deeply interested in keeping our events and the esports industry clean from match fixing and other undesirable factors”.
