Betting Company Midnite has joined Esports Integrity Commission
The United Kingdom based betting platform Midite has joined forces with the Esports Integrity Commission to work against gambling corruption in the esports genre.
Midnite has joined the anti-corruption programme, created by ESIC in 2016 to help safegard integrity and highlight any suspicious betting patterns. Working with the ESIC allows information to be passed between members and protect both the industry and its customers.
“In reaching our goal which is to make esports as fair as possible, bookmakers play a crucial role since their internal data analysis makes it easier to recognize the signs of a rigged match. We’re glad to welcome Midnite as our new Anti Corruption Supporter. Having them as partners is another step towards the future where esports is free from corruption and fraud.”
Ian Smith, Commissioner of the Esports Integrity Commission
While traditional sports verticals have been hit hard by the Corona virus, Esports has continued to thrive. Esports has seen increase in turnover as punters look to other markets to bet on, this has also led to a 50% increase suspicious betting activity.
“At Midnite, we value transparency, integrity and care when it comes to our product and customers. With our core focus being on esports betting, our ethics revolve around trust and with esports as a whole. ESIC’s experience and expertise on fighting corruption and other threats to the betting and esports industries ensures they remain sustainable and reliable. Being a member of ESIC is an honour, and we look forward to working with the team there to uphold the integrity of esports.”
