The most recent expansion of SIS’ Competitive Gaming portfolio has seen the addition of an end-to-end 24/7 Counter-Strike esports betting product, designed specifically for sportsbooks.
Created entirely from the company’s secure self-contained gaming studios in Manchester, UK, the offering provides sportsbooks with a high-integrity, high-frequency esports product featuring head-to-head contests between skilled gamers competing on the world’s most popular esports title.
Broadcast across two 24/7 streams, seven days a week, operators signing up to the service will gain access to an initial 25,000 CS:GO events a year. The ‘event class’ competitive gaming product has been specifically designed for betting to sit alongside SIS’ existing sports sims products, Ebasketball and Esoccer, which are broadcast from a larger studio set-up in Milton Keynes. In total, this takes the number of esports events offered to over 150,000 a year.
SIS controls and monitors each of the bespoke 2v2 CS:GO contests to ensure high levels of integrity and competitive action. It is the only offer in the market that has referees visible who have undertaken ESIC-based training, monitoring every game, with real-time communication with operators and SIS and Oddin traders.
The new product provides a broad range of pre-match and in-play betting markets and provides operators with an end-to-end solution of ultra-low latency live streaming, supported with on-screen graphics with unique betting prompts such as form, players stats and results, as well as live caster commentary.
Odds and trading support is provided in partnership with esports betting solutions specialist, Oddin.gg.
After being given a tour of the new studio, G3 sat down with those involved to discuss their respective roles and functions within the military-style operation.
