SCCG Management announced Thursday a partnership with Seth Schorr and his group of companies to bring Gamerwager’s UK licensed, peer to peer console esports wagering platform to the US.
Gamer Wager developed the first peer to peer video game wagering platform approved by the UK Gambling Commission. The platform has been launched in both Play and App Stores, respectively for the UK, and it allows gamers to connect and wager with one another in a licensed and compliant environment.
In an official press release, Stephen Crystal, SCCG Management Founder and CEO said of the new partnership: "Joining forces with Seth Schorr has greatly enhanced our ability to access the growing esports wagering market with licensed peer to peer wagering platform, Gamerwager. The ability to provide casual gamers an easy to access platform for their favorite titles is essential to bringing broad consumer awareness to the esports wagering market."
Seth Schorr, CEO of Fifth Street Gaming and Chairman of Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino, added: "For over seven years I have been an advocate of esports betting in Nevada and have collaborated with numerous players in the Peer to Peer wagering space. It was refreshing to find an operator that understands the regulatory requirements and has gambling in their DNA. Esports and gaming culture has never been more relevant to the casino industry and I am confident Gamer Wager will fill the void and offer casino customers the regulated Peer to Peer offering that is desired."
Mark Goddard, CEO of Gamerwager commented: "We are pleased to be partnering with Stephen Crystal and Seth Schorr on this incredible venture -- a literal dream team for US esports gaming. We aim to connect millions of passionate gamers, in regulated markets, from around the world."
