Titanium Cloud e-Sports stated “We are proud to announce that we will be working VIE Esports. We’ve decided to partner and promote VIE because of our great confidence in their business and model. Specifically, they provide full transparency which we believe is very unique in the esports wagering market. The security, regulation and SEC oversight of Esports Entertainment Group significantly increases the trust factor in VIE. To top it all off, VIE also makes it possible to add our team matches to the site, so that our fans can bet on them safely and securely.”
Burning Foxes stated “Being part of the VIE affiliate program is a big step forward for our organization, which had a big restart in February 2018. Until now, we have been very weary of online esports wagering due to the recent scandals, as well as, the threat of our fans and players becoming addicted to gambling. However, we have put our trust in VIE due to the wagering controls, cooling off period and other such measures integrated directly into the site for the purpose of making sure players have fun without getting into trouble. This is something no other esports gambling site has ever done to our knowledge and the reason why we are proud to be part of their affiliate program.”
Proskilled stated “Being part of the VIE affiliate program will provide a big boost to our organization. We are committed and ready to take this huge step forward with VIE and becoming a great partner for years to come.”
