Monday 26th February 2018 – West Ham duo Javier Hernandez and Michail Antonio put their feet in David Moyes’s shoes as they took their first steps into the world of coaching in part two of the Betway Esports Challenge.

After going head-to-head in a game of CS:GO in part one, Hernandez and Antonio got GeT_RiGhT and f0rest – two stars of leading esports team Ninjas in Pyjamas – to put down their mouse and keyboard and lace up their boots for a very different type of shooting practice.

The Challenge required GeT_RiGhT and f0rest to team up with their coaches and shoot footballs at cardboard cut-outs of West Ham players, with the most points awarded for hitting the targets that were furthest away.

The Betway Esports Challenge, which was hosted by BBC presenter OJ Borg, marks the first time a football club and esports team have ever collaborated.

Betway have been the headline sponsor of Ninjas in Pyjamas – known as ‘NiP’ to supporters – since September 2016.

NiP are legends in the world of esports. They have won the IEM Oakland – one of CS:GO’s most prestigious tournaments – two years running and earned almost £2million in prize money.

CS:GO is one of the leading esports titles and, like the Premier League, is watched by millions of fans around the world.

Soft2Bet celebrates its 3rd birthday!

Soft2Bet celebrates its 3rd birthday!
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Soft2Bet, а leading online gambling operator and software provider, announces third anniversary of the company’s founding.

Established by a few passionate industry veterans in September 2016, now Soft2Bet boasts a team of more than 200 dedicated employees spread in four international offices in key European centres – Kyiv, Sofia, Limassol, and Malta.

Known as a multi-brand company, three years ago Soft2Bet started with MalinaCasino, an online casino and sports brand. Then, by the end of 2016 BuranCasino and YoYoCasino were launched. Nowadays, the portfolio consists of 13 unique brands, the latest of which is called Nomini and went officially live just a few days before the company’s anniversary.

Soft2Bet is known for providing clients with an online casino experience that can be rarely seen anywhere else in the industry. At the beginning its brands were offering well-known casino games as well as sports betting options. Now, clients can play more than 2,500 games coming from industry leading providers. Sport fans can bet on thousands of pre-match and live events on over 30 types of sports including virtuals. Adding more verticals is on the roadmap of the company in the near future. But that is not all – some of the brands, the newest one, Nomini, for example incorporate a gamification technology that allows players not only to enjoy high-quality casino games but participate in ‘a game in the game’ – unlock achievements, collect special points, exchange them, earn prizes, and etc.

In terms of game providers, Soft2Bet brands are offering titles from top companies in the business as well as from trusted emerging iGaming software development studios. Working only with a few of them at the beginning, now Soft2Bet partners up with 44 key iGaming providers. Among the company’s partners are Play’N GoNetEntEvolution GamingAltenarPragmatic Play and Microgaming.

It is important to mention the two significant milestones reached during the last year – the acquisition of a licence from the Malta Gaming Authority and the BMM-certification that brings Soft2Bet one step closer to operating on the fruitful Swedish market. These are huge achievements that place the young company among the major online casino providers on the regulated European market!

Borish Chaikin, CEO of Soft2Bet comments: “We remain ambitious and hungry to improve further – to launch new products, incorporate the latest technologies, expand our geographical reach, introduce our brands to more people. We are at the right place now, and we wouldn’t be here without the continued support of our partners. I hope our growth during these three years has also helped them in the development of their own businesses as well. And as far as I can conclude from our mutual growth results – it is the case. We will continue to put all our efforts to evolve in the future and conquer new heights. A ‘thank you’ doesn’t sound enough, but we are thankful to all parties involved in our success story – from our business partners to our dedicated employees!”

A spectacular event with a circus show was organised on September 12 to celebrate the company’s third anniversary together with employees and valued partners.
