Rizk’s eSports partner made the final in Counter-Strike tournament

Rizk Casino announced back in July 2018 that they were entering the eSports arena with one of the best teams in the world, ENCE. In fact, the ENCE Team now ranks 4th in the world. And all of this is due to a mind-blowing performance at the Intel Extreme Counter-Strike: Masters Global Offensive Major tournament that recently took place in Poland.

Facing off with the champ!

It sure was a long fought battle for the underdog team ENCE which consist of 5 Finnish men. Indeed, reporters who covered the event said that ENCE gave the Danish team Astralis a great run for their money!

As you probably know Astralis pretty much dominate the eSports scene nowadays. Notably, they had 12 first place finish in Major eSports event throughout their career, before this event, including one at the FACEIT Major: London 2018. So it’s no surprise to hear that ENCE lost 2-0 in the final. But despite losing to one of the best team in the world, ENCE still went home with £114,282 ($150,000). Although the first place did not come ENCE’s way, it’s only a matter of time before Rizk Casino’s Team raises a first-place trophy it seems.

A bright future

Rizk eSports partner made the final in Counter-Strike tournamentTo our knowledge, Rizk Casino is GiG’s only Brand to sponsor eSports. And surely after a performance like this, both parties should be over the moon with the outcome of this tournament. And perhaps this means that we could see more GiG casinos venture into the eSports seem. GiG’s CEO sure seems to think eSports is an avenue worth exploring. Back in the days he commented on the partnership and said: “The partnership with ENCE is a natural fit for our operator Rizk.”

All and all, the eSports scene has exploded the last few years and now has over 300 Million fans. Plus, between 2017 and 2018 the revenue generated by this vertical increased by 38%. Some even predict that the eSports industry should see revenue reach over £1,15 Billion ($1.5 Billion) by 2020. And surely, GiG will want to have a slice of that pie too!
