The partnership is established in collaboration with GRID, which is a data platform that focuses on the provision of data solutions for the esports and games industry, presenting partners with data-powered data. GRID has previously worked with a number of prominent operators and companies interested in scaling their competitive gaming product, including Pinnacle.
Re-Play eSports Provides Players with More Entertainment
Re-Play eSports is a product dedicated to providing footage that is taken from the Champion of Champions Tour, a large-scale CS:GO event that brings professional teams into focus, and that will now be showcased through Inspired’s Virtual sportsbook and VPP platforms, the company said in a press release.
To power Re-Play eSports’ in-game feeds and video feeds, Inspired Entertainment will rely on GRID’s powerful and advanced solutions. Thanks to Re-Play eSports, two teams will go head-to-head and play to win and advance, with players using the solution able to place their bets as they see fit. There will be a number of different markets to explore as well, including options such as Team to Win, Team to Get First Kill, Total Number of Survivors, and many more.
Commenting on this new opportunity Inspired CCO of Virtual Sports Steve Rogers said that the Virtual Sports vertical has been enjoying steady 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,” Rogers said, enthusiastic and optimistic about the future of the partnership.
Rolling out the Re-Play eSports game and solution with GRID is an opportunity to let fans experience the esports betting genre in a brand new way, he added. Meanwhile, GRID chief sales officer Mikael Westerling said that he was similarly excited about the opportunity.
CS:GO, A Cornerstone of the Esports Betting Experience
For starters, Westerling hailed CS:GO as a cornerstone electronic sports with a massive and growing player base. Inspired, he said, has built a product that is tailored to generational needs and successfully leverages the prominence of the esports genre.
“We are excited to partner with Inspired and ensure the next wave of innovation in eSports betting is powered by official in-game data, providing the best fan experience for all players,” Westerling concluded.
