E-sports Hits The Road

Big Betty brings eSports to the people

The eSports league developer ELC Gaming has invested in a mobile broadcasting and venue presence it has christened Big Betty to tour European venues broadcasting events and promoting the ELC League.
The concept arose from discussions between Ian Langstaff of WinMedia and John Hannigan, an executive with Allied eSports Property Network, which owns ELC Gaming. One of Hannigan's responsibilities is lining up venues for eSports competitions, and the concept clearly has potential in that area.
The full equipped facility was rolled out this month in record time and appeared at Gamescon. It comprises a 31 tonne giant pantechnicon that is 5.2 metres high, 21.5 metres long, and is powered by a 440 horsepower motor.
The rig packs a rooftop lounge, a 6 metre outdoor screen; with another of 12 metres on the roof of the trailer, and 14 smaller but still substantial screens. The interior boasts 24 video gaming stations and a full-on broadcasting and editing technology suite with live streaming capability; high tech audio systems, and sophisticated lighting equipment.
Hannigan says that the rig will be on the road around Europe through 2017, broadcasting the Esport Legends Cup and other Allied eSports leagues and tournaments…and Big Betty will also be hired out to eSports companies for use at their events.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
