| By Daniel O'Boyle

Marek Suchar, co-founder and managing director of, and PandaScore chief executive Flavien Guillocheau discuss esports’ relationship with betting and the impact this can have on integrity with Clarion Gaming’s Jamie Coles.

Instead, they say, the betting and esports industries can work together productively to fight match fixing.
