End-to-end Competitive Gaming offer, built for betting, with integrity at the core of the offer, to deliver superior margins

SIS (Sports Information Services), the leading multi-channel supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has officially launched its end-to-end 24/7 Counter Strike (CS:GO) esports betting product, designed specifically for sportsbooks, as part of its best-in-class Competitive Gaming portfolio.

Created entirely from SIS’ secure self-contained gaming studios in Manchester, UK, the CS:GO offering provides sportsbooks with a high-integrity, high-frequency esports product featuring head-to-head contests between skilled gamers competing on the world’s most popular esports title.

Broadcast across two 24/7 streams, seven days a week, operators signing up to the service will gain access to an initial 25,000 CS:GO events a year. The ‘event class’ competitive gaming product has been specifically designed for betting, and will deliver superior margins for operators, as is the case with SIS’ existing sports sims products.

SIS controls and monitors every one of its bespoke 2v2 CS:GO contests to ensure the highest levels of integrity and ultra-competitive action. It is the only offer in the market that has referees (visible) who have undertaken ESIC-based training, monitoring every game, with real-time communication with operators and traders.

The new CS:GO product provides a broad range of pre-match and in-play betting markets and provides operators with an end-to-end solution of ultra-low latency live streaming, supported with on-screen graphics with unique betting prompts such as form, players stats and results, as well as live caster commentary. Odds and trading support is provided in partnership with esports betting solutions specialist Oddin.gg.

Operators can access SIS Competitive Gaming through a simple integration, and the addition of 24/7 CS:GO betting events complements the existing Competitive Gaming offering of Esoccer and Ebasketball, taking the number of events offered to over 150,000 a year.

Adam Conway, Head of Competitive Gaming at SIS, said: “We are very pleased to announce the launch of our 24/7 CS:GO esports product, which has been designed for betting, and provides a best-in-class, high integrity, high-quality product that delivers round-the-clock betting opportunities for the most popular esports title in the world.

“We are confident that our top-quality CS:GO product will help deliver superior margins for our operator partners, as had been the case with our existing sports sims titles.”
