Interview with RAIG Chairman Clive Hawkswood
January 15, 2020
Clive Hawkswood is the chairman of Responsible Affiliates in Gambling (RAiG), an independent body that aims to promote safer, responsible gambling.
CSGOEmpire is the largest and oldest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skin betting site. It is owned and operated by Ultimate Dynasty Limited, which is registered and based in Seychelles.
Different from the typical online casinos and sportsbooks because of the use of skins, CSGOEmpire has no gaming license. It restricts players from certain countries like Afghanistan, Iran, Kuwait, Pakistan, and North Korea, among others.
Its betting website boasts a user-friendly interface. And the best part is the website works seamlessly even on smartphones and tablets. At the same time, CSGOEmpire offers a customer-friendly support team. They respond well and quickly through email and live chat.
Complementing the overall betting experience is the built-in chat function with multilingual rooms that creates a dynamic and lively community of skin bettors. Everyone who wants to place a bet needs to have a Steam account, which is the only way to become a member of CSGOEmpire.
Even though CSGOEmpire has a distinct niche or market, players will find generous bonus deals on board. Here are the player-friendly offers that add excitement to every betting session:
With all these freebies and deals, members are sure to find more reasons to keep betting on this website.

CSGOEmpire has only one game: CSGO Roulette. This roulette game is unlike any other as it has been modified to fit the concept of skin betting.
Roulette, which is inspired by European roulette, has a unique betting interface and only shows the a strip of symbols instead of the entire wheel. There are no numbers nor the colors red and black. Instead, it has the Terrorist, Counter-Terrorist, and Empire symbols, with the Empire acting as zero.
This game runs on proprietary software and gives players complete assurance that all results are authentic through provably fair gaming.
The winning symbol of every spin is posted, as well as all winners who wagered on the respective winning symbols.
CSGOEmpire has a distinct banking system. For one, it accepts deposits through skins and give players their desired skins upon withdrawal. It accepts both fiat money and cryptocurrencies: USD, EUR, BTC, and BCH. And since skins can be used as a currency, there are no banking fees for deposits and withdrawals.
There are four ways to deposit. One is through credit cards, which will require players to buy preset amounts of coins (5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250). Accepted methods for this first option are through Visa, MasterCard, and PayPal. Another deposit option is via G2A Pay, which also accepts Skrill, Neteller, AliPay, PayPal, JCB, and more. The standard rate for this option is $70 for 100 coins. The third option is through Steam using the skins of CS:GO, Dota 2, Rust, and H1Z1 that are worth at least 1 coin. The forth option is by buying coins using BTC. You can also use BCH by converting Bitcoin on ShapeShift.
There is only way to withdraw on CSGOEmpire, and this is done through exchanging your coins for your desired skins. You can choose between CSGO (Instant) skins and CSGO (Trade-Locked) skins. At the same time, you have the choice to get Dota 2, Rust, and H1Z1 skins. These skins or items will go directly to your Steam account, and the process may take as long as eight days.
No payment methods set.
CSGOEmpire is a breath of fresh air and is a unique concept in the iGaming sector. Clearly, this betting site appeals only to a specific market: those who play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, H1Z1, and Rust on Steam. Despite this, CSGOEmpire offers a complete package, beginning with a responsive support team, a provably fair roulette game, and generous deals and promos. The flexibility of payments adds to the desirable gaming experience with this site.
