oth Betgenius and Unikrn have been pioneers for legal eSports betting in the past. Genius Sports, Betgenius’s parent company, partnered with FACEIT back in April to monitor Counter Strike: Global Offensive’s ELeague for fan activity and suspicious betting patterns, while Unikrn were on the front lines of the recent skin gambling scandal that occupied Valve’s time for the better part of last summer.
Commenting on the partnership, Rahul Sood, CEO of Unikrn, said, “There is no doubt that legal, regulated wagering is a blossoming frontier in eSports and we are proud to offer our customers with not only the most engaging product on the market but the most secure. This could only be achieved by partnering with a leading supplier with the utmost integrity. Betgenius was the clear choice.”
Jack Davison, Marketing Director of Betgenius, added, “We are delighted to be partnering with Unikrn…to facilitate its state-of-the-art live betting experiences and help grow the regulated market.”
