We have seen many Australians being checked by police and game organizers for fixed and illegal bets on the game. Counter-strike, But the problem is obviously so serious that the FBI is now intervening to clean up North America.
This story originally appeared in Kotaku Australia.
The inspiration comes from a new interview on YouTube Ian Smith, The commissioner Esports Integrity Committee (ESIC). ESIC is an agency that works with the Victorian Police Fixing and throwing of matches in Australia Counter-strike, But as you might expect, the problem is much deeper.
Chat with YouTuber slash 32, Smith (Smith) outlined “In a relatively small but important group of players, how to conduct continuous investigations over a long period of time, North American MDL“.
“[It’s] I describe it as a classic game fixation method-players are bribed by external betting groups to repair the game, instead of players just accidentally doing it by themselves, and this practice goes on longer and it is more organized. So, to some extent, we are cooperating with law enforcement agencies and the FBI, which has only recently established a sports betting investigation department within the FBI. They are good, but they have no experience, because until recently, sports betting has not become a big problem in the United States, so everyone has a firm foothold in this regard,” Smith said.
Smith also provided up-to-date information about the Australian game survey. Although Australia’s game resolution has slowed down and game repair is a criminal offence here, Smith said they will be able to announce the charges within a few weeks.
“I am optimistic that we will be able to release it publicly in the next 10 days to 2 weeks.” ESIC Commissioner said. “Although there are many gambling scandals in Australia, there are definitely games going on, and we are cooperating with law enforcement there. Once you start working with the police, the time there will be longer. Fortunately, in Australia, these are all It is a criminal offense. Therefore, it takes longer to coordinate with the police. We have a lot of reliable cases. If we act alone, we will announce these prosecutions now. However, not all 42 people are betting – This is a group that is not just betting, but manipulating the results.
Smith refers to the situation that a large number of prohibitions have been issued. Australian players at the beginning of this year. Some players place bets every year for their own bets. However, a small number of players are forbidden to place multiple bets on their teams during the game. Smith said in an interview that ESIC can cross-reference evidence from in-game chats, Discord logs and other supporting materials to create Their watch cases.
In this case, part of the reason why North America is a bit behind is legal Until recently, e-sports betting has not been accepted in the United States. But this did not prevent fans and players from placing bets, but until it became legal, it did not really attract the attention of regulators. Because of how each state operates, the United States actually has 50 different territories and licensing laws, while a country like Australia only operates within a national framework.
As for the Australian allegations, Smith said:
Smith said: “We will deal with the first part very quickly, because we are basically dealing with idiots.”
