GG.BET has become the first official betting partner of Dota 2, which includes its International 2022 Regional Qualifiers, Last Chance Qualifier and Group Stage.
This is the first time that these stages of the esports game, based in Romania, have been sponsored by a betting company, opening ‘new opportunities’ for gaming fans as the operator continues its support for the development of the industry.
Dmitry Voshkarin, CEO of GG.BET, said: “Becoming the first betting partner of the first three stages of this year’s The International is an incredible opportunity for GG.BET. We’ve come a long way with PGL and are delighted to take our collaboration to the next level.
“We will continue to organise unique shows, exciting contests, themed bonuses and prizes, and do everything else in our power to make sure every Dota 2 fan has an unforgettable time enjoying the tournament.”
Representing a ‘unique experience’ for the industry, the bookmaker will be teaming up with brand ambassadors and esports influencers to create exclusive content about The International.
GG.BET provides support for broadcasts of the Regional Qualifiers from 3-17 September, the Last Chance Qualifier from 8-12 October, and Group Stage matches from 15 to 18 October.
The spectators and subscribers will also access reviews, predictions for the matches, as well as video content.
Silviu Stroie, CEO of PGL, added: “We are delighted that GG.BET has become the first official betting partner for the first three stages of this year’s The International. We’ve already been able to rely on them for quite some time now and the GG.BET team has already proven just how much they bring to the table as a sponsor.
“It’s great to be involved with a brand that knows esports entertainment inside out, as well as what huge events such as TI entail.”
