The world of competitive video gaming, known as ‘Esports’ in the industry, is easily fast becoming one of the most lucrative and exciting communities in the world of entertainment. The industry is set to become worth more than $1 billion next year and, whether it be playing in the server, packing out stands and stadiums at huge events, or cheering on from afar on streaming platforms such as Twitch.tv, the Esports community now contains millions of fans from all four corners of the globe.
It’s every gamer’s dream to turn their passion for gaming into a profession, and the increased wealth in the scene has led to a new found wealth of opportunities for these dreams to become realities.
One of the best examples of these opportunities is Unikrn.com’s innovative UMode feature. Unikrn are the world’s leading site for all things Esports news and wagering, and they have created a unique player vs. house betting model that allows users to bet on themselves in their favourite titles.
Here’s the full lowdown on Unikrn’s UMode.
What Is UMode?
UMode is the world’s first online player vs. house wagering model. Utilising their very own blockchain backend, Unikrn have created a feature that allows a user to earn money playing games by accepting challenges and placing bets on their own performances in their favourite titles. The blockchain-powered backend synchs up with a player’s own personal gaming profile, and will present a user with a set of challenges that can vary from very simplistic feats such as just win the match, to more specific challenges such as planting a certain amount of bombs in CS:GO or destroying a set number of nexus in League of Legends.
Players will then have a choice of choosing which challenges they bet on, and how much they’re willing to back themselves in the server. UMode will then track their very next match in the game and dish out the winnings if any of the challenges are successfully completed.
UMode allows users to tailor their wagering experience to their own play style and eliminates the issues that can negatively impact more traditional player vs. player moneymatches or bets such as smurfing or sharks who pretend to be on the same sort of skill level as a user, only to hustle them out once a game gets going.
What Games Are Available On UMode?
Unikrn have already established themselves as the industry’s leading voice for all things Esports, with their news page keeping users up to date on all the latest goings on, the Esports betting tips offering the most comprehensive guide on wagers to look out for, and their real world and Esportsbooks are on hand with an unbeatable range odds, offers and markets for season outrights and live in play bets.
With so much reach within the community, Unikrn have brought all of the best Esports options to UMode. At the time of writing, UMode offers gamers the chance to back themselves in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, PUBG, League of Legends, Dota 2, Halo 5, Fortnite, and Fortnite: Arena.
Revolutionising And Innovating
Rahul Sood, founder of Unikrn.com, has lived and breathed Esports for years now and knows firsthand the importance technology has in revolutionizing the way competitive matchmaking is played by veteran users. Speaking about UMode, he remarked: “Over years, our fans have begged us for a way to back their own games and make their matchmaking more interesting, and now we’ve developed a way to do so which avoids the pitfalls of traditional players-vs-player skill betting.”
Unikrn have always been the go-to guys for innovating and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the world of Esports and, through features such as UMode, they look set to remain at the top of the tree as the industry continues to boom over the coming months and years.
