We are happy to announce Skrilla has joined the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC). ESIC is recognised as the acting international body for esports wagering integrity, and along with other stakeholders united by a desire to confront and prevent corruption in esports; particularly match-fixing driven by betting fraud.

Skrilla is the only regulated, esports focused bookmaker, operating a skill based DFS platform globally. We are licensed in Australia, a wagering market recognised as one of the most mature and regulated globally. This ensures we apply industry leading practices and systems to deliver consumer protections, including KYC, account verification, underage screening, responsible gambling practices and anti-money laundering (AML) checks.

Organisations such as ESIC are helping to progress esports and esports wagering towards achieving a level of professionalism, equal to that of traditional sports. In order for esports to continue to grow, the industry must continue to mature and with that comes goverance.

Esports Integrity Commissioner Ian Smith recently said, “We are delighted that Skrilla has decided to join ESIC. The fact that Skrilla is embracing esports wide integrity efforts in this early stage of its operations speaks to the company’s impeccable ethos and values and its determination to get things right from day one, not just for itself, but for the wider community in which it operates. It’s great to have them on board and contributing to ESIC’s efforts to educate esports participants.”
