Increasingly, bookmakers began to invest in eSports teams. The Berlin CS:GO BIG team has received support from Unikrn, an American company. The team appeared just recently and already managed to become the vice champion of the DreamHack Leipzig 2017 tournament after losing to the FlipSid3 Tactics team in the CIS final. The team already had two sponsors before signing up with Unikrn: Lioncast (a developer of professional gaming components) and VERTAGEAR (a developer of gaming chairs of a premium level).

This move from Unikrn is not yet completely clear, because they do not have a license for gambling in Germany, but perhaps this is a sign that it will appear soon. This is also the second investment in CS: GO teams by Unikrn: in 2015, they became the general sponsors of the CS:GO womens team, which was called Team Unikrn. As a result, the team never lit up anywhere.
I would like to remind you that Unikrn is far from the pioneers among the bookmakers. Over the past year, the GG.Bet office managed to become sponsors of such CS:GO teams as Fnatic, Na’Vi and Luminosity, not to mention the Dota 2 teams. Will the new partnership bear fruit soon.
