A new genre of sports betting is being created by Inspired by hybridising esports with virtual sports featuring CS:GO, in partnership with Grid.
CS:GO is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game. In Re-Play esports, two teams go head-to-head to battle it out. Bets will be offered on a variety of possible outcomes including: which team will win, which team will get the first kill and total number of survivors.
The esports data platform Grid will provide official in-game data and video feeds to power Re-Play esports.
Steve Rogers, CCO of Virtual Sports at Inspired, commented: “Being able to offer fixed odds eSports games through our existing Virtual Sports platforms is a unique fusion of two product verticals that have seen exponential growth over the past 2-3 years.
“Making esports events available 24/7/365 across our certified virtual sports platforms is a uniquely exciting offer. We are looking forward to unveiling our Re-Play eSports game with Grid as a whole new genre of betting events aimed at capturing the attention of a different player demographic outside the more traditional sports betting community.”
Mikael Westerling, Chief Sales Officer at Grid, said: “CS:GO has proven to be an iconic esports title with an active fanbase that has been growing constantly for more than a decade. Inspired has taken a unique approach to creating the product that recognises the next generation’s needs and taps into the eSports potential.
“We are excited to partner with Inspired to make sure the next wave of innovation in esports betting is powered by official in-game data, providing the best fan experience for all players.”
