Thunderpick Partners With Evil Geniuses and Provides Sponsorship

Thunderpick and Evil Geniuses have announced their new partnership, as Thunderpick becomes Marquee partner for the esports brand’s CS: GO Teams. 

The leading cryptocurrency betting platform will sponsor the Blue, Black, and Gold teams as well as provide the first official sponsorship of a women CS: GO team, a huge statement as female involvement grows in the world of esports. Evil Geniuses’ CEO Nicole LaPointe Jameson explained a little about how the partnership might work: “Thudnerpick’s commitment to ensuring a reliable and inventive betting environment will offer a new arm of engagement during events. We look forward to the positive impact this partnership will have on our organization”.

Thunderpick is increasing its reach with investments and partnerships in the esports communities, and the company has already shown commitment to the CS: GO gaming scene.

Kelly Sanders, who is the Head of Strategy at the company, spoke more about this deal: “Thunderpick is committed to supporting and growing players’ opportunities to succeed not only as players, but as creators and individuals, and this partnership marks a key milestone in our efforts to foster a larger and more diverse community within esports and gaming more broadly. We look forward to leveraging our platform and offering exciting new experiences for CS: GO fans while also introducing our brand to a wider audience.”

The partnership makes perfect sense, with two forward-thinking brands with a focus on the esports scene finding a mutually beneficial deal, which will see not only financial sponsorship but opportunities for fan engagement such as chances to meet some of the stars of the esports teams.

Evil Geniuses is one of the biggest esports brands and one of the few brands in this space that can date back to the 1990s. In over two decades of history, the company has competed in a vast number of popular esports, winning several titles and operating at the highest level in games including Counter-Strike, Starcraft, League of Legends, VALORANT, Dota 2, Call of Duty, Rocket League, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Street Fighter, and more.

Even today, Evil Geniuses continue to push boundaries. Nicole LaPointe Jameson was the first female esports CEO, and the brand is launching female esports teams to support the growing number of women who love to play these games. As the company explains, “Our goal has always been, and will continue to be, building champions”.

The current roster is full of said champions, with some of the biggest names in League of Legends, VALORANT, and other hugely popular games belonging to one of the many EG teams currently operating. The company also has a huge commitment to helping its fans, with methods including Genius League, which is a “first-of-its-kind program that provides valuable career development and learning across business, esports, STEM, marketing, and culture. The broad range of roles and topics make Genius League an internship for everyone.”

Always at the cutting edge, it makes sense that Evil Geniuses would partner with such a forward-thinking brand in Thunderpick, who will sponsor the Women’s CS: GO team, supporting diversity in the world of esports. 

In a world where gambling and esports are becoming more closely intertwined, and technology such as blockchain and crypto is growing rapidly, Thunderpick has taken the best of these worlds and created an incredible platform for betting on the best sports and esports, as well as other forms of gaming. 

The platform is crypto-only, which means free payments and flexible transactions, and an extra level of security and anonymity for players.

Thunderpick is proud to use the latest cutting-edge technology to provide players with a modern experience that goes above and beyond, and to encourage new customers, Thunderpick offers some generous welcome bonuses. On top of that, various giveaways and other contests mean extra value for those who get involved. 

As well as offering a huge focus on esports, Thunderpick also has a variety of different casino and table games including various slots made by some of the biggest developers on the planet, plus blackjack, roulette, poker, and other casino games. The sports gambling offerings are also impressive and there are many different markets, meaning cryptocurrency gamblers can stake in some of the top sports in the world.
