Six people arrested over alleged match fixing

Australian police have made six arrests following an investigation into match-fixing in a Counter-Strike tournament, it has been announced.

The operation involved raids in Mill Park, South Morang and Mount Eliza, all in the state of Victoria, and also in Perth, West Australia, where no arrests were made.

The six men, aged between 19 and 22, were detained on suspicion of "engaging in conduct that corrupts or would corrupt a betting outcome of event or event contingency, or use of corrupt conduct information for betting purposes", according to a statement from the Victoria Police. They were interviewed and released pending further inquiries, with the investigation still ongoing.

If proven guilty, the six men, whose identities were not revealed, could face up to 10 years in jail.

The investigation was launched in March of 2019 following a complaint from a betting agency regarding suspicious betting activity in a CS:GO tournament. It is believed that at least five matches were impacted and over 20 bets were placed by Australian punters.

“Esports is really an emerging sporting industry and with that will come the demand for betting availability on the outcomes of tournaments and matches," said Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Paterson.

"It’s important that police and other agencies within the law enforcement, gaming and betting industries continue to work together to target any suspicious activity.

“These warrants also highlight that police will take any reports of suspicious or criminal activity within esports seriously, and we encourage anyone with information to come forward."

Still is a pretty harsh punishment considering orgs that don't pay their players (erhm NiP) are still able to keep competing.
2019-08-23 15:11
If fifflaren thinks nip didn't fulfil their end of the contract, he should take them to court. And then we'd all be able to see what's true. The way he chose to do things is ridiculous
2019-08-23 16:10
They probably weren't even under a written contract, and that's why he's doing things this way. It certainly wouldn't surprise me considering the lack of professionalism back at the start of CSGO
2019-08-24 08:05
They were under contracts...

"If fifflaren thinks nip didn't fulfil their end of the contract, he should take them to court." you're either out of the loop, or you're a fucking troll. He gave an interview and he exposed the multiple contract breaches NIP had with him and other employees of the org (not all were players). Those people confirmed his words and they have DOCUMENTS to back it up, and, I believe he was in the process of taking it to swedish court.

that was 5 years ago, esports wasnt nearly as big
2019-08-24 02:22
It was still bigger than the Australian scene
2019-08-24 15:05
Who said anything about au lol, we're talking about ibp getting banned 5 years ago not these guys getting banned now
2019-08-24 15:09
This article is about au, and I made a comment comparing it to ibp bans. Then you came along, god knows why, to point out the size of e sports 5 years ago
2019-08-24 15:11
You said that ibps punishment wasnt as big cause this is happening, you dont realize that in 2014-15 esports wasnt nearly as big and there wasnt as much money on the line and no one else really got their whole career fucked like that of course now they are gonna be facing jail time esports is twice as big of a market and its more serious now, lol.
2019-08-24 15:28
But this is a local Australian team, which is why saying e sports is bigger now makes no sense. The scene that these players are part of hasn't got more money than 2014 2015 csgo
2019-08-24 15:53
still esports is taken more seriously bruh.

2019-08-23 13:54
I think when people say that they mean in proper tournaments such as esl, dreamhack, esl etc. I have no doubt whatsoever that leagues such as lootbet and all that are very prone to match fixing.

they deserve lifetime at prison men
2019-08-23 12:27
It´s up to 10 years, meaning that is the maximum prison sentence. More then likely they will recieve a milder sentence.

I know, I am not fully retarded. But for real, that much time for ma tchfixing? If you look back at some old stuff. IBP got no jail time, and they just cant play cs at majos. There was this Dota team that got 5 year game bans and thats it.
2019-08-23 12:29
Well its basically same as stealing. They deserve jail, they deserve to be destroyed forever.

2019-08-23 12:49
come to my country, the mother of match fixing, football, basketball, counter strike here is tradition. all free. The catch is that it gives a percentage of the profit to the main one.
2019-08-23 12:49
This is my response to the 'free swag' people etc. If he lived here in Australia you would be saying 'free swag from prison', not just 'allow swag to play again'. They probably won't do time unless the profit was huge, but they will certainly end up with a criminal conviction if charged and found guilty.

well if it was 5 players from vic and a single player from wa, then the wa player would mostly likely be a coach instead, i could only think of ferg, so i guess whatever team he was coaching at the time apparently reported from betting agency from a game in march i guess the age bracket of 19-22 included players only, so nobody could figure this out if coach is inc, but im 200iq
