VIE.gg applies for New Jersey sports betting license.
There soon could be a new and unique player entering the sports betting market in the state of New Jersey.
VIE.gg, the mobile sports betting arm of the New Jersey-based Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. is in the application process for a sports betting license in the state. Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group, Inc., alluded to this fact earlier this week when announcing a partnership with Dignitas, a Newark, N.J.-based Esports company. The company also owns sportnation.bet, online sportsbook that may also launch in the USA (Colorado, NJ or other states).
“The partnership’s focus on digital and physical activations in the New Jersey market is ideally timed for us as we move forward on our application for our New Jersey gaming license,” Johnson said in a statement.
VIE.gg, became an official multi-year partner of Dignitas in June 2019, and under the expanded partnership, it has now secured the naming rights of Dignitas’ famed CS:GO team.
“Dignitas is a true leader in the esports community,” Johnson said. “Expanding our existing partnership and placing our brand in front of the millions of engaged Dignitas fans around the world further demonstrates our commitment to growing VIE.gg into the leading wagering platform in esports globally.”
The VIE.gg exclusively handles wagering on Esports events. VIE.gg bills itself as the number one place on the internet to bet on Esports matches and play fantasy eSports.
Esports Entertainment offers fantasy, pools, fixed odds and exchange style wagering on esports events in a licensed, regulated and secure platform to the global esports audience at VIE.gg.
“As a committed long-term partner, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to co-brand our VIE.gg platform alongside Dignitas’ legendary CS:GO team, an opportunity that can introduce our brand to millions of esports fans globally and help establish our status as a Tier 1 operator within esports betting”.

A unique feature of the VIE.gg website is that instead of betting against a bookmaker, bettors are wagering against each other. That enables opposing players to set the odds, rather than accepting the established odds from a sportsbook. Vie takes a five percent stipend off the top of any wager as their cut.
