Parimatch teams up with heavyweight contender Oleksandr Usyk for responsible gaming

Parimatch has added some punching power to its portfolio of sports celebrity endorsers. On Monday, September 20, the sports betting giants announced heavyweight title contender Oleksandr Usyk as the group’s first responsible gambling project ambassador. 

Boxing champ fights for responsible gaming

Oleksandr, Usyk, the former undisputed cruiserweight world champion, will try to spread the message of self-control and discipline through educational events backed by Parimatch.

The boxer’s intrinsic values resonate with the campaigns that Parimatch has launched over the years, particularly about teaching their sports betting customers the importance of responsible gaming.     

Usyk accepted the deal to become Parimatch’s responsible gaming ambassador just a few days ahead of his much-awaited showdown with Anthony Joshua on Saturday, 25 September, at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

The Limassol Cyrus-headquartered sportsbook has been on a signing spree as of late to bolster its presence in the sporting world. Just last week, the company landed a three-club agreement with top-flight clubs Aston Villa, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Southampton.

Quotes from the Press Release

Usyk spoke of becoming responsible gaming ambassador of Parimatch: “Willpower, intrinsic motivation and self-control are the key elements for victory. The same goes for gambling: it is important to stay mindful while gambling, to understand that this is just a way to have fun and get positive emotions, and you can always pause if necessary. 

“This is what I mean by responsible gambling. Therefore, I join the initiative of Parimatch, which will raise the awareness of players about the principles of fair, responsible and transparent gambling.”

Maksym Liashko, co-CEO at Parimatch Tech, said: “As market leaders in the CIS and a responsible business, we are championing the move towards responsible gambling. Our team will advance responsible gambling project in development, analytics, and communication with clients. 

“We are confident that the partnership with Oleksandr will take our initiatives to a new level and help Parimatch spread knowledge about responsible gambling among players worldwide.”
