The ESI Podcast: the opportunity at the intersection of esports and gambling

The ESI Podcast: the opportunity at the intersection of esports and gambling

first_imgHere at Esports Insider we’re delighted to introduce the ESI Podcast, in partnership with Mishcon de Reya.The four-part series will cover topics from betting through to intellectual property issues in the burgeoning esports space. Each episode features our host, Ollie Ring, Head of Media at Esports Insider, a guest from our partners, Mishcon de Reya and two industry leading guests.The first episode of the series covers the ever interesting opportunity at the intersection of esports and gambling. The podcast lineup is as follows:Ollie Ring, Head of Media, Esports Insider (Host)Nick Nocton, Partner, Mishcon de ReyaSujoy Roy, Director of Esports, LuckboxFilip Wargeus, Brand Development Manager, Kindred Group PLC (Unibet)Gambling and esports continues to have a rocky relationship across the board. Although the industry has arguably left behind the worst with regards to the illegal and unregulated skin betting industry – bad practice still exists. Publishers such as Riot and Blizzard do not allow gambling sponsors near League of Legends or Overwatch respectively, whilst Valve has a lot more relaxed approach when it comes to event sponsorship.In recent years, the industry has seen the likes of Betway and GG.Bet spend a lot of money in both team and events sponsorship and more recently, Unibet has become involved with Danish giants Astralis. There’s little doubt that there’s significant appetite for esports betting, but it’s important to have it provided and consumed in a regulated environment and companies such as Luckbox and Unibet are going to market with exactly that. Furthermore, the repeal of PASPA in the United States has provided opportunity for the country to legalise sports betting across the country, and the podcast delves into what this could mean for esports as sports betting. The podcast covers all angles of esports and betting and looks at how traditional sports and gambling have developed in harmony as well as looking at what the future may look like for the two industries. The Esports Insider podcast in partnership with Mishcon de Reya will return next week, looking at the art of running tournaments – with guests from both ESL and FACEIT.last_img read more

Alicia Vikander makes her childhood dreams come true as Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider”

Alicia Vikander makes her childhood dreams come true as Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider”

first_imgABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Growing up in Sweden, Alicia [ah-LISS-ee-ah] Vikander never thought she’d be in English-speaking movies, let alone be an action star. But in the new Tomb Raider movie, her transformation into kick-butt heroine is complete.Tomb Raider is a different take on the early-2000’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider films that starred Angelina Jolie as the video game heroine.  This one follows Lara Croft’s origin story, as she tries to solve her father’s mysterious disappearance. The role may seem like a departure for Vikander, who won an Oscar for her role in The Danish Girl, but she’s always loved the genre.“I grew up in Sweden and my mom was an actress and probably introduced me to a lot of European art house cinema and all that, but [I still do] run to the cinema to see big adventure films and action movies,” Vikander tells Good Morning America. “I was a huge fan of the Indiana Jones movies and The Mummy series growing up.”In order to perform the intense stunts of Tomb Raider, Vikander worked with a trainer and gained 12 pounds of muscle.“It’s very empowering ’cause I kind of looked at a lot of female athletes and stunt women that I met over the years in the film industry and I was like, ‘Well if it’s gonna be plausible that Lara can do this’ — ’cause we did a bit more naturalistic take — ‘then I want to look like these women,’” she says.These days though, she’s living a much easier life away from the grueling workouts and strict diet. She and husband Michael Fassbender have moved to Lisbon, Portugal.“It’s the most beautiful city and country, great weather, from [two people who are] Irish and Swedish,” she laughs. “We’re very happy that it’s not raining! It’s a great place where you can surf and be close to nature. It’s a city by the water.”Tomb Raider hits theaters Friday.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Mike Sorensen: To keep or not to keep Utah Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin, that is the question

Mike Sorensen: To keep or not to keep Utah Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin, that is the question

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — By now, the Jazz may have already made a decision concerning the fate of longtime Jazz player, assistant coach and head coach for the past three-plus years, Tyrone Corbin.If so, you can stop reading right now.If not, here are a few reasons the Jazz should keep or not keep Corbin as their coach.KEEP: First of all, Corbin is a good guy. There’s no real disputing that. Going back to the time he played for the Jazz in the 1990s, he was one of my favorite Jazz players because he was always respectful of the media and never acted like a knucklehead in any way. He didn’t hide in the training room or belittle a dumb question. He’s been the same way as the Jazz’s coach, never avoiding interviews or offbeat questions. It’s always best if you can have a good guy representing your franchise in perhaps the most visible position to the outside world.NOT KEEP: The Jazz are coming off a 25-57 record, their second-worst since coming to Utah 35 years ago and the fourth-worst in the NBA this season. When your team is that bad and fans aren’t coming out, change is usually necessary.KEEP: Corbin was dealt a bad hand this year. General manager Dennis Lindsey admitted that the Jazz finished pretty close to where he and other management types figured they would at 25-57. If that’s the case, how can the Jazz justify letting a coach go that they basically set up for failure? If the Jazz brass figured on a 25-win season, then Corbin hit the bull’s-eye.NOT KEEP: Before the season, Lindsey emphasized the three “Ds” — development, discipline and defense — for this year’s team. Corbin did well for the most part in development by giving young players Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter Alec Burks and Trey Burke plenty of playing time, although you wonder why he didn’t go with that lineup a little sooner than the final four games. The team had discipline — no one got in trouble and the players were disciplined in their approach to the game.As for defense, you’d have to say the Jazz were a failure this season. They ended up ranked No. 30 in the league in defense out of 30 teams. You can’t blame poor shooting on a coach, but defense is another matter.KEEP: Who will the Jazz get that will be better than Corbin? Phil Jackson’s not coming through that door and Jerry Sloan isn’t about to come out of retirement. I’ve always said, you better have a better coach in mind before you make a change and if the Jazz don’t have such a coach, maybe they shouldn’t make a change, just to make a change.NOT KEEP: Corbin seems to struggle as a bench coach. Too many times he would stick with the same lineup in a game when a change seemed obvious and too many times the Jazz would lose leads in the final quarter. The latter could be blamed on young players not knowing how to finish. Or on a coach not knowing exactly what to do. Successful coaches are quick to make adjustments in the fast-paced NBA game and in that regard Corbin has been lacking.So what are the Jazz going to do? The fact that Corbin was not given a contract extension before the season began was a good clue that he wasn’t likely to be the coach beyond this season no matter what happened — outside of a berth in the playoffs. And the Jazz would have had to win twice as many games as they did to achieve that goal.Perhaps the biggest reason why Corbin won’t be back is the lack of fannies in the seats. EnergySolutions Arena was the greenest (empty seats) it’s ever been during games since its opening in 1993 and interest is so low that scalpers are practically giving tickets away before every game. The Jazz have committed themselves to rebuilding with young players and now they’re likely to find a new coach to guide the youngsters and bring some hope to the Jazz faithful.The Jazz haven’t let a head coach go since Dec. 11, 1981 when Frank Layden replaced Tom Nissalke. That’s an astounding record for a sports franchise when coaches are fired at the drop of a hat these days. Whether it’s right or not, it may well happen this week for the first time in more than 32 years.last_img read more
