The video series, in addition to organizing exclusive activities for the bookmaker’s subscribers, includes live broadcasts and summaries of recent events. Additionally, Banks will collaborate with other GG.BET Ambassadors on joint content projects and promotions.
Banks is no stranger to CS:GO tournament coverage. Throughout his career he has hosted numerous Tier 1 tournaments hosted by BLAST, ESL and PGL. The host is currently working at the IEM Rio Major and will be releasing the first videos as a GG.BET ambassador over the course of the tournament.
In recent months, the bookmaker has increased its list of ambassadors. In October it announced a collaboration with Michael Yossef ‘Torte de Lini’ Cohen-Palacios, the author of Dota 2 Heroes Guides, and in August it recruited Dota 2 commentator Andrew Jenkins.
GG.BET is also a regular partner of CS:GO events. In April, the bookmaker joined forces with PGL for the Antwerp Major. In 2020, it signed a deal with tournament organizer ESL to become its official global betting partner.
