What do you get when you combine the “Small Cap iGaming Super Company”  with the “Small Cap Esports Tournament & Broadcasting Leader”

A partnership that will launch the first ever prediction games for major live esports events.

Additionally, the prediction games from the platform will be featured on TGS’ Pepper esports platform which will enable all tournament organizers to offer predictions and rivalry challenges in their tournaments to their viewers.  If you thought TGS was the small cap esports tournament leader before, their offering just got supercharged! 

“Live predictions is a feature our brand partners have been asking us to implement for a long time,” said Spiro Khouri, CEO of TGS Esports Inc. “By implementing FansUnite’s technology into our esports events, TGS is able to increase the level of engagement between its fans and brands” 

For FansUnite, the partnership will enable them to showcase their prediction platform to a large audience of gaming spectators who participate regularly in TGS tournaments and other related esports events.  Moreover, it will showcase FansUnite’s ability to incorporate their proprietary stream prediction platform into any esports event or tournament, whether online or live in-stadium.

Scott Burton, CEO of FansUnite stated “TGS collaborates with numerous esports event organizers who have a large following of enthusiastic esports gamers that participate in their events.
