Police Arrest Six For Online Gaming Match-Fixing

Australian police have arrested six people for allegedly losing matches on purpose on the popular online game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. In what is Australia’s first police investigation into esports match-fixing, police allege the men, from Victoria and Western Australia, arranged the outcomes of matches during a tournament, and placed bets on their own matches.
