However, we know not everyone can or is comfortable traveling yet, so continuing a robust online bracelet offering in 2021 is a must.”

With massive tournaments, WSOP gold bracelets & rings, and a route into the live WSOP Main Event in November, we hope players will love what we have in store for them.”

Full details on all online WSOP events will be released over the coming weeks and months, and will include tournament dates, buy-ins and other important information.

Today, global gaming and esports brand GIANTX (GX) is proud to announce the acquisition of iTero Gaming, a UK start-up specialising in AI coaching solutions for competitive gamers. The acquisition represents a significant milestone for the gaming and technology industry, highlighting the growing integration of AI in esports.

With a focus on the title League of Legends, the multi-million deal represents the company’s ongoing commitment to the global esports community through delivering precise, individualised coaching for gamers looking to enhance their competitive performance. Integrating iTero’s innovative AI technology will also enable GIANTX to provide tailored training and strategic insights to its global fanbase. Founder of iTero Gaming, Jack Joseph Williams, has also become the esports organisation’s new Head of Gaming Technology following the acquisition.

The iTero Gaming League of Legends coaching app has amassed nearly a quarter million installs in less than two years, harnessing AI to pinpoint player weaknesses and optimise pre-game setup. Analysing millions of games every patch, their state-of-the-art AI assesses which champions from your pool would excel in team drafts, and suggests enemy bans, optimal runes, and item builds. During matches, it also offers real-time tools such as objective timers to support players striving for a competitive edge in destroying the enemy nexus.

This acquisition not only sets a new benchmark for competitive training but also paves the way for future innovations in AI-driven performance enhancement and strategic development in gaming and esports.

Founder of iTero Gaming, Jack J, is a former financial analyst at HSBC who channelled his passion for AI into developing predictive models for esports competition outcomes in his spare time. This endeavour evolved into iTero Gaming, where he began offering decision-making tools for League of Legends players. iTero Gaming launched its app in September 2022, quickly amassing over 10,000 installs, along with glowing 5-star reviews and strong user retention rates. This success validated iTero Gaming’s product-market fit and potential to disrupt the gaming industry with the innovative use of AI.

GIANTX (GX) was formed from the amalgamation of London-based Excel Esports and Malaga-based Giants Esports last year. This strategic merger has consolidated the esports organisation’s position as a dominant force in global esports, with headquarters in London and Malaga, alongside a state-of-the-art performance centre in Berlin. This union has since supported GIANTX’s goals for global expansion, solidifying its status as a leading team across multiple competitive titles, supported by an unparalleled fan base.

The potential to enhance gameplay and provide tailored insights is enormous, and I can’t wait to see the positive impact it will have on the gaming community”

Jack J, Founder of iTero Gaming emphasises: “I’m excited to be joining the GIANTX team. EXCEL ESPORTS was the first esports team I became a fan of and I’ve followed their journey over the last few years. I believe and have always believed that data and AI have the potential to seriously disrupt the status quo of esports, whether that’s finding undervalued players or identifying strategies outside of the standard meta. I think esports is ready for the future and I’m really looking forward to what comes next working alongside GIANTX.”

UK gaming industry to launch new ‘boutique casino’ show in London in January 2025



Reading Time: 3 minutes


As part of a three year expansion plan into the gaming and emerging entertainment sectors, EAG Expo, owned by UK trade association Bacta, will be launching a new casino show in London dedicated to land based operations.

EAG Expo Europe will be launching a new specialised ‘boutique show’ for the casino and betting industry at its upcoming edition in London’s ExCeL Centre on January 14-16 2025. The Capital Casino & Gaming Show (CC&GS) will run alongside EAG and forms part of the exhibition organiser’s expansion drive into the wider land based entertainment and leisure sector in both the UK and Europe.

The development programme was approved earlier this year by EAG owners Bacta – the UK’s amusements and gaming trade association. In addition to investment in a new arena for the core casino and betting machine manufacturers, the new London casino show will also focus on the growing market of smaller dedicated service and supply companies concentrated in the land based sector. During the exhibition, CC&GS will be hosting a series of seminars and workshops dedicated to the needs of land based casino and betting businesses.

And for the Capital Casino & Gaming Show, there is also the added historic dimension. The UK industry has universally backed the launch of a smaller, more intimate, boutique-style exhibition to maintain the important tradition of a casino trading forum in London for the land based international market, which has dated back to the late 1980s.

Martin Burlin, Chairman of EAG, said: “These are interesting and exciting times for the broader land-based amusements, gaming and gambling sector. With new legislation on the horizon here in the UK, it is likely that many of the innovations that are driving change in Britain will work their way into the international marketplace. And with new social responsibility measures featuring more prominently on production schedules, including age verification and cashless systems, both EAG and the new CC&GS in London provide the perfect shows to see this technology in action – and in an atmosphere that lends itself to more detailed conversations and engagement.”

The focus on land based gaming provides an important USP for the Capital Casino & Gaming Show. Nick Harding, former Bacta president and ex-CEO of the national AGC operator Praesepe, is the ‘international ambassador’ of the newly launched London casino show. He believes it will provide a vital addition to the international casino and betting sector’s calendar of events. “London has been the central force for the global casino sector for a period spanning five decades or so – it has been the capital of land based gaming products and innovations for all that time. With the evolution of the global industry, particularly into the online arena, there is a growing call, and need, for a sustained, more dedicated focus on land based operations,” Harding said.

The ‘boutique’ style casino is exactly how Harding sees the new London casino show evolving. “This isn’t a show honed on numbers, it’s shaped by quality products, quality time and quality engagement. The land based sector needs a dedicated forum, where the largest and smaller-styled influencers can connect in an environment which is set at their pace.”

He added: “In the States, particularly Las Vegas and the tribal casino sector, in Asia, Australia, and in heartland Europe, land based gaming is alive and kicking – but with very unique technological innovations and regulatory requirements. The UK has been the home of that land-based focus for nearly half a century, and we want London to continue to play an influential part in building business for the land-based industry across the globe. That’s the vision for our London casino show, and it’s an investment the entire UK industry is keen to make.”

The Capital Casino & Gaming Show will launch at London’s ExCeL Centre on 14-16 January 2025.
