Betway has announced the launch of the Betway Arena, a multi part eSports tournament series that kicks off with Dota 2.
The series starts off with top Dota 2 teams playing in a weekly king of the hill style competition. Each week one match will be played, with the winner taking home $5,000 and the chance to play against a new opponent the following week for another $5,000.
The event will be hosted and broadcast by Moonduck TV, with Evil Geniuses and compLexity set to battle it out in the first match on March 3rd.
“We’re excited to introduce the Betway Arena to eSports fans, which begins with an all new format of world-class DOTA2 action running for five consecutive weeks,” said Betway’s Anthony Werkman. “I’m confident that the King of the Hill series will be a fantastic event and the first match between Evil Geniuses and CompLexity Gaming is a mouth-watering prospect. eSports continues to grow beyond our own lofty expectations by featuring regularly in our daily top 10 sports for turnover, and the Betway Arena will give fans can’t miss events on the eSports calendar for many months to come.”
Betway will of course be offering a number of markets to bet on during the event.
