The Swedish online gambling operator, Unibet, has partnered with the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s PGL Major Krakow to live stream over 80hrs of footage and offer betting markets for the event.
When it comes to the relationship between traditional bookmakers and esports, the Swedish online casino Unibet are beginning to amp up their interest.
For the first time in Unibet’s history, they will provide live streaming coverage of a top esports live event on their UnibetTV Twitch channel. The event in question is the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) PGL Major Krakow taking place 21-23 July.
In June, tournament organisers held qualifiers throughout the Americas, Europe, CIS, Asia, and online, and 16 teams remain in contention for the $1m prize pool. The winners will receive $500,000, and the runner-up takes the consolation prize of $150,000.
