UltraPlay broadens its eSports games coverage and will start Heroes of the Storm Live

UltraPlay has recently added the popular Chinese dedicated game King of Glory to its expansive eSports portfolio and becomes the first provider to offer real time live betting of Heroes of the Storm.

King of Glory, released for Android and iOS, quickly became a hit title around the Chinese fans and game’s followers. The game promptly reached over 100 million downloads after its launch at the end of 2015.

Following the trend, UltraPlay started offering a standard package of pre-match markets of the MOBA game match winner, map winner, totals. The company is planning to add more markets in the near future. With the Asian trend of playing more and more on mobile devices, the company has chosen King of Glory as its new add-on.

UltraPlay is also celebrating its 2.0 version release of Heroes of the Storm, which enriches betting options with the real-time live betting on the game. The standard markets will be offered as match and map winner, first blood, first to five to ten kills, with new markets to be added soon based on games’ objectives.
