XY Gaming was founded by professional gamers and IT professionals in April 2013 with a desire to bring a fast and fair system of skilled gaming for cash to the masses.
A few years ago, our CEO Aaron Fletcher badly damaged his knee playing basketball, and after an extended period of time lying prone on a couch playing video games, found the combination of his hand eye co-ordination and reflexes made him quite good at computer games. Shunning a life more ordinary he ended up playing video games professionally at large scale tournaments. With the improvements in internet speeds and the proliferation of online games available he figured it was only a matter of time until the prize money available at these tournaments made its way onto the web, so he came up with a way to make the thrill of competition available to all players… and XY Gaming was born.
We’ve worked hard to find innovative ways to ensure challenges are either fair or handicapped appropriately, the environment is free from cheats and hacks and the results are automatically detected.
With over 1.2 billion gamers globally and about 10% already playing for currency, XY Gaming has many potential customers to satisfy as cash and gaming go together like beer and nuts.
Like any good start up we’ve got our war stories but not only have we survived we’ve built a product, assembled a balance, experience and capable management team and now we are getting ready for our upcoming launch in mid/late 2015.
