EPIC Risk Management has announced that Cam Adair has joined the company as Online Gaming and Esports consultant.

Cam Adair is an international speaker and entrepreneur who is widely hailed as a leading expert on video game addiction. He is best known as the founder of Game Quitters, a support community for gamers from 95 countries. In 2020, Cam launched the INTENTA Gaming Disorder Clinical Training.

Cam’s role will be to help EPIC expand their work in preventing gambling-related harm into the Esports and gaming landscape with a particular focus in providing expertise in crafting sessions in the company’s education and professional sports pillars in the UK, Europe and the USA.

Speaking of his new role at EPIC Risk Management, Cam Adair said: “I am excited to collaborate with EPIC Risk Management to reduce gambling-related harm in gaming and esports. With the explosive growth of the gaming industry in recent years and its convergence with gambling through loot boxes, social casino games, and esports betting, it’s more important than ever that we safeguard players with the education they need to make informed decisions.”

“We’re delighted to bring such an influential and knowledgeable figure in esports and online gaming landscape into EPIC Risk Management,” said Paul Buck, CEO at EPIC Risk Management. “Cam is someone we have admired for some time, with his work in addiction and focus on mental health is something we feel mirrors our own approach in preventing gambling-related harm.

“The esports and gaming landscape is an area that is receiving more and more scrutiny and in Cam, we have someone who can help shape our approach and help connect with an extremely important demographic.

Helping EPIC cut through to a demographic more accustomed to gaming and Esports is something that EPIC Risk Management’s Director of UK and the Rest of the World, Patrick Foster believes will benefit the organisation. “We work with some incredible partners in the education sector, and we are looking at providing further educational sessions around esports and gaming on the back of their requests to provide sessions on this growing theme. Again, in our Professional Sports pillar where we work with the likes of the Chelsea FC, Arsenal FC, Manchester City FC, English Football League (EFL), Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA), and the Rugby Players’ Association (RPA), we have had similar feedback and requests for their players. In Cam, we have a wealth of knowledge to tap into for us to provide the right and pertinent information to at-risk demographics.”

Adair’s addition to the team follows EPIC’s hire of Jonathan Peniket, a loot-box addiction expert, and EPIC’s work as global Gambling Awareness Partner with the worldwide representative association for professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) in a first of its kind programme in Esports.

The partnership further strengthens the EsportsBets’ ability to inform and educate its audiences worldwide.

EsportsBets has already established itself as a go-to source for understanding and navigating the growing esports betting space. The esports data provided by Esports Charts will allow EsportsBets.com to further its commitment to offering the most up-to-date information to its vast readership base.

“I’m a great believer in data science and statistics,” said Gianfranco Capozzi, Head of Esports at Catena Media and Product Manager for EsportsBets. “Our users are some of the most inquisitive on the Internet and highly active when it comes to in-depth research — not just on Google, but also on community sites such as Reddit, specialized forums, and social media. This opportunity to cooperate with Esports Charts will give us the chance to back our editorial and publishing efforts, showing that our content is not just sentiment-driven, but also based on actual data.”

Talking more specifically about esports and the gambling markets, Capozzi added:

“Esports bettors are new-age bettors who will ultimately disrupt the market. We need innovation and technology developments able to meet the requirements of this new generation. Thanks to the real numbers and stats tracked by Esports Charts, I am confident that we can also prove to the most skeptical bookmakers, the huge potential of the burgeoning esports market.”

Sergii Rudenko, Head of Sales & Partnership for Esports Charts, added:

“We’re excited to work with EsportsBets and help them achieve their editorial and content goals. Esports Charts is positioned to help the industry in many ways and we will continue to bring value for our clients and partners.”

The global esports betting market is worth approximately $17.2 billion as of the end of 2020, according to Wholesale Investor. As casinos and traditional sporting events continue to adjust to the global pandemic, many organizations — and esports fans — have turned to esports betting as an additional source of revenue. That is why it is crucial that consumers have access to the most accurate data available.
