Stephen Crystal, founder and CEO of SCCG Management, has partnered with Seth Schorr and his group of companies to bring the UK-licensed peer-to-peer console betting platform GamerWager to the US.
The peer-to-peer video game betting platform, the first of its kind to be approved by the UK Gambling Commission, has launched in the Play and App stores respectively for the UK. It allows players to connect and bet with each other in a licensed and secure environment.
Stephen Crystal said: “Joining forces with Seth Schorr has greatly improved our ability to tap into the growing eSports betting market with the licensed peer-to-peer betting platform Gamerwager.”
Crystal continued, “The ability to provide casual gamers with an easy-to-access platform for their favorite titles is essential to bringing broad consumer awareness to the sportsbook market.”
Seth Schorr also commented: “For over seven years, I have championed sports betting in Nevada and collaborated with a number of players in the peer-to-peer betting space. It was refreshing to find an operator who understands regulatory requirements and has gambling in their DNA.”
Schorr added, “eSports and gaming culture have never been more relevant to the casino industry and I’m confident GamerWager will fill the gap and provide casino customers with the regulated peer-to-peer offering they want.”
