UltraPlay and X-bet cut ProDotaCup links

X-bet, an online betting site and its betting provider, UltraPlay, have terminated links with the ProDotaCup eSports event due to concerns about match-fixing and collusion.

X-Bet has been sponsoring the tournament since June last year and has noted three cases of match fixing, which it said were reported to organizers.

“We have been surprised to see that there are bettors with a 100 percent-win rate on chosen ProDotaCup matches during the last three months. That made us think more about the existence of a tight-knit syndicate around the PDCup tournament, with usage of insider information in order to wager on the match outcomes.”, X-bet spokesman Russ Stevens said.

X-bet has reported the case to its betting provider UltraPlay, which has also experienced few occasions of questionable practices related to this tournament before. Both organizations have decided to remove ProDotaCup as a tournament to be covered as a prevention of all players and operators that can be affected.

 

“We have evaluated the cases related to ProDotaCup and have decided to stop offering odds on this tournament to our clients’ network. We believe that any existence of match fixing and betting collusion is damaging both financially and reputationally the organizations involved, but moreover they badly affect the overall eSports betting ecosystem,” said Peter Ivanov, head of Esports trading department at UltraPlay.
