Unikrn to expand Esports Betting across Europe
Unikrn the world’s leading sportsbook for esports, is pleased to announce the creation of Unikrn EU, a joint venture with France-based RBP. Unikrn EU will create Europe’s most immersive and exciting esports betting experience by bringing together the entire Unikrn esports platform, including our partnership with BIG of the world’s best — and Germany’s most popular — CSGO Team.
The Unikrn platform includes skill and spectator betting applications, a tournament series, team ownership, a casino group and unique multimedia content beloved by the esports fanbase. With the new joint venture and Malta license, Unikrn EU will begin rolling out its platform across Europe in early 2018.
“For a little over a year, Unikrn EU has been working with the Malta Gaming Authority to acquire our new license,” said Rahul Sood, CEO of Unikrn. “Malta has some of the highest regulatory requirements and processes, they are by every measure the gold standard and one of the most respected authorities for responsible and ethical wagering.”
The announcement comes in the midst of Unikrn’s UnikoinGold token sale, which has already raised over $30 million USD in Ethereum in over 112 countries, and is on track to be the single most successful and widely distributed token in the esports and gaming industry. UnikoinGold token betting will eventually follow across Europe, alongside upcoming innovations in the way fans engage with esports.
With the creation and rapid early success of the UnikoinGold token sale, which attracted notable VC and cryptocurrency investors in the pre-sale — including Mark Cuban, CoinCircle, Blockchain Capital, Pantera Capital, Brock Pierce and Draper Dragon — Unikrn is poised for rapid growth and expansion in their own community, and beyond. Through continued expansion of Unikrn, and with new industry partners, the UnikoinGold token is well-positioned to become the universal token for use in esports and gaming across the industry.
“RBP has over 300,000 loyal registered customers, and our sites receive over a million unique visitors per month, making us the leader in France when it comes to online betting,” said Emmanuel de Rohan Chabot, CEO of Zeturf and Zebet and co-founder of RBP. “RBP will be a strong partner to Unikrn to help bring regulated, safe, and legal esports betting in markets across Europe, and we look forward to working with their exceptional team.”
