Entain Purchases Unikrn’s Esports Wagering Technology Assets
Esports & gaming are together the world’s largest and fastest-growing entertainment industry, and Unikrn is a well-known industry leader, winning more consecutive EGR Esportsbook of the Year awards than any other operator in history, but also earning years of accolades from industry panels for its innovation in merging esports and wagering into strong, on-demand experiences including virtual esports, on-demand streamer betting, PVH & PVP betting.
“Unikrn was built on the efforts of true believers,” said Unikrn CEO and co-founder Karl Flores. “From the beginning, we knew that gaming is the future of entertainment and that, with special attention, wagering could give gamers and esports fans more excitement in their passion. We’re proud of what we’ve built with our partners, investors and global team, and can’t wait for Entain to empower us for round 2!”
The transition to new ownership will result in a temporary hiatus of Unikrn’s services, but the companies plan on resuming customer-facing operations in 2022. During this down time, Unikrn will be developing more innovations, platform improvements and additional off-platform assets to revolutionize the gaming space.
