“I can only speak in general terms”, said Smith “There are two distinct elements to these surveys The first is that we have a very targeted survey, where we have very good corroborating evidence from Discord, from various discussion logs, screenshots and player recordings, that we are going to ban for a very, very long time.”
He went on to say: “This particular group of players is part of a much larger investigation that will take us a little longer., unfortunately there was, among a relatively small but large group of players for a long time, organized match fixing in North America.”
Smith went on to explain that there are players who not only bet themselves, but who were bribed by «paris unions» outside to manipulate the results of their matches.
Smith also spoke about the wider state of sports betting in America and the challenges organizations like ESIC face when it comes to maintaining fair betting standards..
