Vancouver-based eSports company ESE Entertainment has launched a new iGaming division of its business, which will focus on expanding its existing business products and services to online gaming companies.
ESE is an entertainment company focused on providing technology to the video gaming and eSports industries. However, it is now looking to branch out into online gaming services and will aim to engage with the market through strategic partnership and new hires and advisors.
That move comes amid significant movement in the Canadian online gaming industry. Ontario’s new regulated online gaming and betting market finally got off the ground on April 4, with over two dozen operators and even more suppliers registered.
The new division, which will promote the company’s video games and esports offerings, will be led by Konrad Wasiela.
“The announcement that Canada will launch a new iGaming market in Ontario is groundbreaking,” said Konrad Wasiela, CEO at ESE. “This opens an opportunity that cannot be ignored. Our company has the infrastructure and solutions to provide tier-one services to iGaming companies around the world. We believe this is an excellent opportunity for ESE to expand its offering into iGaming and leverage our complementary expertise in esports and gaming.”
