The eSports arms race is only just beginning but Betgenius is charging ahead of all competitors. With more than 20 clients in regulated markets, including Unikrn – one of the highest-profile eSports-only operators – it has gobbled up an industry-leading market share.
Far from simply looking to accumulate as large a customer base as possible, Betgenius is looking to offer the strongest possible product range. It has invested in developing its in-play offering, powered by a Talinn-based team of dedicated traders. It also offers data feeds for more than 40,000 events each year, making it one of the most comprehensive solutions in the market.
Parent company Genius Sports has moved to support this growth by launching tailored variants of its integrity solutions to help protect competition. All this is managed by the company's head of eSports Moritz Maurer. As the founder of one of the industry's first eSports betting sites, GGwins, he is one of the most experienced executives in the vertical.
He knows what customers expect, and has complemented a market-leading solution with a range of controls to ensure all betting is carried out in a fair and safe environment.
