Esports Entertainment Group Discusses a Huge Jump in Partnerships with Uptick Newswire’s Stock Day Podcast and How They are Using Affiliates to Get Ahead of the Curve in Esports Betting

PHOENIX, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Esports Entertainment Group Inc. (OTCQB: GMBL) (or the “Company”) is a company on the cutting edge of a fairly new industry, Esports betting. Grant Johnson, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, spoke with Stock Day’s Everett Jolly about their success in the virtual arena.

Jolly started the interview by saying the group recently announced big news from Game Con on one of the largest video game conventions. They signed up 190 affiliates which is a 200% increase over last year’s Game Con numbers.

“Our entire reason for being at the event was to attract new affiliates,” explains Johnson. “We wanted the streamers, the bloggers, and the influencers of the Esport sector. We were the only company in our industry speaking to the Esport community, which might tell you a little something about our competition.”

Johnson explains that these affiliates are partnerships that help get their bet exchange platform out there in the world.

“Our affiliates are critical to us going forward, they have a voice with the fans. By them feeling comfortable with our service they are effectively marketing us to their fanbase” 

In addition to the partnerships, Jolly noted Esports Entertainment Group also signed Affiliate Marketing Agreements with dozens of Esports teams. A milestone that no other Esports betting platform has ever accomplished.

“As of now, we have 174 professional teams that play in cash tournaments,” said Johnson. “They have sponsors and play in various Esports events around the world.”

Johnson went on to explain that their model for business relies heavily on partners because of the level of trust they build with their audience. He believes that this is key for the Esports betting platform.
