The UK-based peer-to-peer esports betting platform Gamer Wager has inked an agreement with the Nevada-based SCCG Management to help support the operator’s US growth plans.

“We aim to connect millions of passionate gamers, in regulated markets, from around the world.”

What is Gamer Wager?

Esports betting in the US
Although several states have legalised sports wagering since 2018, esports betting is not yet widely permitted in the US gambling space.
At the time of writing esports betting is permitted in just two US states, New Jersey and Nevada.
In Nevada and New Jersey, sports betting regulators must approve an esports event before a sportsbook operator can take bets on the event in question.
