Ultiate Tournament supports ESIC anti-corruption

The Ultimate Tournament e-Sportsbook operator has joined the ESIC as the latest supporter of corruption.

As an ESIC member, the Last Tournament will help the Commission investigate suspicious betting behaviour on its platform. The corporation will further support ESIC’s further efforts to combat match-fixing and sports fraud.

The Last Turnier ESportsbook is a platform for white label esports which offers betting odds and community functions as well.

“The sports are unquestionably a fast-expanding sector and as a U.S. gaming operator, the integrities of matches and client protection are the most important worry for us,” stated Alex Pickett, Cofounding and CEO of Ultimate Tournament.

“We think that it is essential to work together as an industry to establish a fair play standard and globally enforce these rules in order for it to develop and for consumers to have the safe experience they deserve. We are really pleased to be able to cooperate with the ESIC and help combat match fraud and advance sports to the next level!”

The company includes a number of data suppliers and tourney operators that have joined the ESIC detecting fraud, match-fixing or betting, including Cyber, Bet, Oddin, Midnite, Parimatch, Betway, Rivalry, Sky Bet and Unikrn.

“We are glad to welcome the Last Tournament as an ESIC Anti-Corruption supporter, Ian Smith, ESIC Commissioner stated. In our mission to prevent cheating and fraudulent activities in the field of betting, our sponsors play a vital role.

“Ultimate Tournament’s dedication to performing its part in preserving the integrity of sports was demonstrated by its membership of ESIC. We look forward to cooperating with the Ultimate Tournament to examine suspicious betting and reduce sport fraud.”

Recently, ESCI has identified 42 persons responsible for betting offences relating to official matches played on ESEA counter-strike platforms. The players were prohibited for up to 60 months from taking part in ESCI partner tournaments.
