Esports-Performance-Center Kinguin Unveils New Esports Performance Center to Elevate the European Esports Ecosystem To The Next LevelReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Kinguin, one of the world’s largest online marketplaces, today unveiled the Esports Performance Center (EPC), a premier esports bootcamp for professional gamers to master their craft. Based in the heart of central Europe, in dynamic Warsaw, this elite training facility will empower esports teams to reach their full potential and bring the best out of teams playing in Europe.

As one of the most advanced esports training centers in Europe, the Kinguin Esports Performance Center spans 21,000 square feet and boasts four training rooms (two with analyst capabilities), a conference room, 21 players’ rooms to house 26 players, two kitchens, a players’ lounge, gym, dining room, and chill-out zone. The Kinguin Esports Performance Center provides comprehensive solutions for teams looking for the ultimate location to hone their abilities.

Viktor Wanli, Founder and CEO of Kinguin commented, “Kinguin’s vision has always been to create an ecosystem built around esports and gaming. Opening the doors of The Esports Performance Center is another value add for the ecosystem as a whole, this time for professional gamers to maximise their potential and elevate the European esports ecosystem to a world-class level. The facility comes right in time to further strengthen the burgeoning Polish esports market which already has an audience of over 2.8 million regular esports spectators.”

The high-end esports training facility is also designed to host industry events while providing simultaneous bootcamps for multiple teams. The center will also provide a professional chef, sports psychologist, trained physiotherapists, and a dedicated concierge service for access to full-time support during bootcamps. At the end of the day, players can take a break from the screen and share a drink at the bar or blow off steam at the gym.

Renegades, a professional Counter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team from Australia, were the first team to benefit from the Esports Performance Center. After holding a bootcamp at the EPC prior to IEM Katowice they went on to reach the quarterfinals finishing 5-8th overall.

“The Esports Performance center sets a precedent for how professional teams operate by replicating a competitive environment where players can focus entirely on their game without any of the distractions a traditional bootcamp would have” said Renegades Manager Chris Orfanellis. “Our time at the training facility paid off immensely  as Renegades went on to make the legends stage for the first time in the organization’s history.”

New Jersey Governor Signs Bill which Allow Golden Nugget to Take NBA Bets

9-10 New Jersey Governor Signs Bill which Allow Golden Nugget to Take NBA BetsReading Time: 1 minute

 

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has signed a bill which allows the Atlantic City’s Golden Nugget casino to accept bets on most National Basketball Association (NBA) games.

Tilman Fertitta, a billionaire from Texas, is the owner Golden Nugget casino. He also owns the NBA’s Houston Rockets team. When New Jersey lawmakers legalised sports betting last year, a provision in the law banned team owners from placing or accepting bets on any games involving their sport.

“We’re grateful, and appreciative that people eventually realized this was an overreaction. It allows us to compete,” Steve Scheinthal, general counsel for the Golden Nugget’s parent company, Houston-based Landry’s Inc., said.

The ban on all NBA bets cut badly into the Golden Nugget’s New Jersey sports betting business. A gambler wanting to place bets on football at the Golden Nugget had to go somewhere else to bet on basketball, making it much less likely he or she would visit the Golden Nugget at all for sports betting.

“It was like going into a boxing ring with one arm tied behind your back. You just can’t compete that way. It gave everyone a year’s head start on us,” Scheinthal said.

ESA Expresses Discontent with Recommendation of the UK’s DCMS to Regulate Loot Boxes Under Gambling Act

8-12 ESA Expresses Discontent with Recommendation of the UK’s DCMS to Regulate Loot Boxes Under Gambling ActReading Time: 1 minute

 

Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has expressed discontent with the recommendation of the UK’s Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to regulate loot boxes under the Gambling laws.

Following an investigation on loot boxes, the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) parliamentary committee termed loot boxes as gambling and called for immediate measures to protect the children by regulating them under gambling laws.

In a statement, the ESA said that they take seriously the issues raised in the UK Parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee report but strongly disagree with its findings.

“As demonstrated by the recent announcement of policies regarding the disclosure of the relative rarity or probability of obtaining virtual items in paid loot boxes, as well as the robust parental controls that empower parents to control in-game purchases, the video game industry is a leader in partnering with parents and players to create enjoyable video game experiences.”

Kentucky AG Andy Beshear Reveals Plan for Casinos, Sports Betting Across State

7-9 Kentucky AG Andy Beshear Reveals Plan for Casinos, Sports Betting Across StateReading Time: 1 minute

 

Andy Beshear, the Democratic candidate of Kentucky gubernatorial election, has unveiled his plan to expand gaming and bring casinos, sports betting, fantasy sports and potentially online poker into the Bluegrass State.

Beshear, the state’s current Attorney General, faces Republican incumbent Gov. Matt Bevin in the November general election. Bevin has spoken out against gaming, especially as an option to increase funding for public pensions.

Beshear’s plan resembles what Illinois officials pushed through in their state earlier this year. While Illinois already had casino gaming, the new law expands the number of casino licenses available and allows sports betting across the state. Illinois plans to use the revenue stream to shore up the state’s infrastructure and fund pensions.

Kentucky is one of the 10 states in the US without a commercial or tribal casino. The border states of Kentucky such as Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio have casinos or racinos located just across the Ohio River near major population centres in Kentucky. Beshear said that the state loses out on $500 million in tax revenue annually to its neighbouring states.
