DATA.BET Announce eSports Debut In $250,000 ICE Tournament

DATA.BET will kick off its quest to become the industry’s most comprehensive supplier of sports solutions by offering official data for ICE London’s $250,000 CS:GO tournament and streaming to an online global audience of over five million.

The tournament was created in collaboration with GG.BET, and DATA.BET has exclusive data rights for this. It will take place in the ExCeL’s 800 sqm state-of-the-art Esports Arena, featuring a custom built room, ICE commentator centre, DATA.BET lounge, theme bar and a betting hatch that allows players to’ bet’ ICE and GG.Bet dollars to replicate the wagering experience of the sports.

The post-launch deal from DATA.BET will then include raw sports data, controlled trading services (MTS) and a fully customised sportsbook plug-in covering 6,000 sports matches, 3,000 live odds and 600 betting markets every month.

Providing raw data would give DATA.BET’s customers exclusive access to real-time streams of common tournaments in different formats, along with the ability to traders shape live lines.

MTS ‘ involvement, the company said, ensures it can cover the entire spectrum of the sports market with costs, liability, and player management chances, while being crucially tailored to the needs of each client.

DATA.BET’s MTS also provides real-time tracking and key player information as well as efficient player identification and flexible risk management to prevent abusive behaviour, which unfairly sets odds.

Ultimately, DATA.BET’s iFrame solution has been developed as a completely customised plug-in sportsbook for esports to be incorporated alongside existing sportsbooks by operators, thus giving full control over the brand in terms of customer service, payments, logistics, odds and risk management.

Chief Business Development Officer Tetyana Pshevlotska at DATA.BET said: “Esports is the fastest growing betting market on the planet, and after bringing together some of the brightest esports innovators, we are launching DATA.BET to bring the market into maturity with the industry’s most advanced package of solutions.

“As well as providing to our customers everything that an esports operator would need, we aim to make our services fully bespoke to each customer with a solutions package that is set to be the most comprehensive ever seen. We’re looking forward to ICE London 2020 and beyond as we begin to roll out our services.”
