Betway has expanded its esports offering by launching a series of Olympic-themed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) challenges in collaboration with tournament organiser Blast.
On the new maps, participants will be able to put their skills and patience to the test, with the highest overall score winning the Betway x Blast golden medal.
The maps, dubbed the ‘Spring Games,’ will be aired live on the Blast Premier YouTube and Twitch channels, which have already racked up millions of views. The Fall Games were likewise a big hit, attracting tens of thousands of spectators and contestants.
Challenge One will put gamers’ agility to the test in a Hurdles game, followed by Surf, which will test their experience and ability, and finally the Glass Floor. The participants will compete in Competitive Tag to see who can tag the most people in the shortest amount of time.
Ever growing portfolio
Adam Savinson, Esports Director, BG Marketing Services, Betway Group said: “The Betway Spring Games is the latest addition to the ever-growing portfolio of Counter-Strike maps produced by Betway.
“The maps are a unique way Betway can engage CSGO fans and have become a staple within the community.
“The reception and popularity of the maps has been incredible. We’re proud to be able to continue to innovate in a game that has been around for over 22 years and have already started on planning the next one.”
Betway’s agreement with Blast Premier began in 2018 and was extended for another year in December 2020.
