Talon Esports has entered into a partnership with online betting and gaming site M88 Mansion. As a result of the deal, the Asia-focused online gambling brand has become the main title sponsor for Talons Dota 2 team.

M88 Mansion will be featured as part of the Dota 2 team’s in-game player IDs as well as the team’s social branding and player kits. The partnership will seek to expand both organisations’ presence both domestically and across the neighbouring regions.

Talon Esports recently entered the Dota 2 competitive scene earlier this year and recently secured a slot into Division 1 of DPC SEA 2021/22 after a successful run in Tour 2.

Sean Zhang, CEO of Talon Esports, said: “We’ve just began our journey in Dota 2 and it’s vitally important to build the right ecosystem to support our ambitions – which is why we’re incredibly excited for M88 Mansion to place their confidence in our organization’s vision.

“We both mutually share the same goal in setting a new standard for gaming excellence in SEA but also to really service our fans and the wider gaming community by providing fun, memorable experiences that they will cherish.”

“We’re excited to partner with Talon and becoming the title partner for their Dota 2 team. We share the same values and aspirations for esports and its growth not only in the SEA region but worldwide. We are keen to grow together and engage with such a passionate audience, and we are hoping to offer them even more excitement and action in the months to come,” Alan Wafer, Head of Business Development at M88 Mansion, said.

BETBY, the innovative sportsbook supplier, has completed the isolation of its eSports solution to ensure it can be added to operators brands as an individual arm, further adding value to its client base.

The eSports offering sees more than 20,000 events run every month, with 22 different disciplines and more than 56,000 Betby.Games events also able to be bet on every month.

Through the breadth of official data via a number of partners, BETBY is able to give market-leading coverage of an extensive array of eSports competitions.

Included in the stand-alone solution is the proprietary Betby.Games offering, which now boasts eight products across over 30 leagues in the portfolio, guaranteeing 30 live events concurrently, as well as a full suite of business tools and customisable features. 

The separation of the offering further highlights the agility and flexibility of BETBYs platform, with the provider live in key markets across the globe and offering scalable solutions to fit individual operators needs.

Leonid Pertsovskiy, CEO at BETBY, said: Our eSports and Betby.Games offerings allow us to bring the highest quality of betting experiences to players. Now, as an isolated product, were able to bring it to a wider client base than ever before, integrating it as a standalone solution, rather than as part of the sportsbook.

Naturally, this significantly expands its potential, allowing us to work with more operators and further expand BETBYs presence globally.

Mind Sports South Africa’s Student Team Eaports South Africa arrived home safely from Russia on Monday, 19 September 2022.

While there were critics who voiced their opinion that South Africa should not have sent a team to Russia, MSSA’s Board took the view that it was an important championship in which to compete as Team Esports South Africa would be able to gain valuable international experience.

Certainly facing the mighty CSGO and DotA 2 teams of Serbia, Russia and Khazakstan at first saw Team Esports South Africa overwhelmed, but such was the character and resilience of the South African team that the team members upped their games in subsequent games.

Simon Zandstra, captain of the CSGO team said of the experience, “It was a very good experience all round. Overall everyone had a rough time being introduced to international gaming as the standard is much  higher than what is found in South Africa.”

Suhail Khan, captain of the DotA 2 team said of the experience, “This was a worthwhile experience. This was the first time that a number of our players had participated in a first class international event. The hotel, hosts (Russian Esports Federation – ReSF), championships, and other players were absolutely amazing.” Sebastian continued to add, “The event has helped the entire South African team to grow and develop. This event will long be remembered as a watershed in terms of the improved standard of South African esports”.

Colin Webster, MSSA President, stated, “The team did South Africa proud. All of the team members are a credit to the country and I am sure all will grow in stature, experience, and skill as time goes on.”
