Esports data and odds supplier PandaScore launches deeper, more customisable Widget 2.0.

Leading esports data and odds supplier PandaScore has built on the success of their highly engaging Widgets product, launching a revamped Widgets 2.0. With the update, PandaScore has now launched a dedicated widget for each of the 11 esports titles it offers, including 3 live widgets for CS:GO, Dota 2 and League of Legends. Operators using PandaScore’s widgets are able to better attract and engage esports fans, particularly during live, with highly customisable esports widgets that provide game-specific, real-time data backed by specialist data scientists and traders.

Customisation options include language localisation, branding and editable block layouts (including player stats and team stats) so operators can choose what information they wish to display. Operators also have complete freedom to customise the front-end with their own branding and colours to maintain a consistent user experience. Integration of PandaScore’s Widgets 2.0 is made simple thanks to a seamless iFrame solution, so operators can get up and running with ease.

Bettors will enjoy in-depth esports information for their favourite games, delivered to them via undelayed data – so they know they’re getting a real-time viewing and betting experience. The data is even more granular, and the updated widget offers easy data visualisation that helps better understand the complex elements of the game at one glance. The data sets are catered to each game. For example, League of Legends fans can enjoy easy access to team strengths and weakness data real-time.

PandaScore CEO, Flavien Guillocheau, commented that “we’ve received great feedback from our operator partners about the quality and level of engagement of our widgets, and we saw a great opportunity to give fans more of what they love. Highly granular data that is easy to digest with the updated UI, creates a seamless experience for bettors.

“The Esports bettors want in-depth data, especially during live. Widgets 2.0 adds new layers of engagement for fans with not only highly detailed information but the interface being catered to each game title. Widgets 2.0’s ease of integration and customisability allows operators to give fans high-quality esports engagements with their brand central to the experience.”

Red Bull Solo Q, the official 1v1 League of Legends tournament, has revealed details of its return in 2023! Red Bull Solo Q is the ultimate grassroots 1v1 League of Legends tournament, giving talented duelists around the world the chance to shine on the world stage. This year, the Red Bull Solo Q World Finals will be held at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere in London, a state-of-the-art gaming and event venue in the heart of the capital, on May 18-19th, alongside the League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational (MSI), one of the biggest events on the global esports calendar featuring the best teams in the world.

Starting from February, national events in 18 countries across Europe, MEWA, North and South America will commence, with additional international regional qualifiers for players in NA, EU and LATAM to secure the final lineup headed to the Red Bull Solo Q World Final in May. The Red Bull Gaming Sphere in London will host the pinnacle of the competition. The winners of each national and international qualifier will also be offered an exclusive experience at MSI, alongside the Red Bull Solo Q World Finals, where players will represent their country and region with hopes to follow the footsteps of Red Bull Solo Q Champions who have continued their success in the League of Legends scene.

Players from the countries listed here can look forward to their national campaigns starting shortly: Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, Egypt, France, Greece, Hungary, Latvia and Turkey.

More information about each national campaign can be found on the Red Bull website.

For those not part of the listed countries above, they will still have a chance to participate in regional qualifiers with a spot at the Red Bull Solo Q World Finals up for grabs. Regional qualifiers will begin on April 13th, with the first qualifier taking place in North America. Additional qualifiers for EUW, LATAM and NA will take place throughout April and May.

Red Bull Solo Q adds a unique twist to traditional League of Legends gameplay with a 1v1 format which paves the way for new strategies and methods to be deployed and offers fans the unique opportunity to see champions and approaches they might not otherwise see. As well as the unique format, Red Bull Solo Q also offers a different way of winning, where players win by securing First Blood, taking down the opponent’s tower, or reaching a 100-minion score to claim victory.

Red Bull Solo Q returns from a successful 2022 season which saw an all-Greek final in New York. The 2022 Red Bull Solo Q Champion, Ahilleas ‘SneakyLemon’ Natsis, put some incredible skill and resilience on display, as he saw off fellow Greek player Arnas “arnax” Stepanauskas. “Having people in the background cheering for me, waving at me and applauding me was the highlight of the entire tournament,” said SneakyLemon following his win. “Winning feels amazing, it’s the best feeling. I can walk down the street and know that I’m the winner!”

To provide competitors with the very best equipment, Red Bull Solo Q has joined forces with AGON by AOC, the global leader in gaming monitors, as the Official Monitor Partner for the event, bringing exceptional visual clarity and ultra-high refresh rates to competitors. AMD joins as Technology Provider, ensuring the high-performance computing that will push the boundaries of the tournament.
