Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO)
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game, a part of the long-running Counter-Strike series. It is developed by Valve Corporation in partnership with Hidden Path Entertainment.
Classics never die
Like the previous games in the Counter-Strike series, Global Offensive features objective-based gameplay. Each player joins either the Terrorist or Counter-Terrorist team and attempts to complete objectives or completely eliminate the enemy team. The game operates in short rounds that end when all players on one side are dead or a team's objective is completed. For most game modes, once a player dies, they must wait until the round ends to respawn.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive boasts massive eSports presence. Apart from dozens events hosted by third-party organizations Valve itself co-sponsors a series of events, referred to as Majors. These events are made special by large prize pools, which are crowdfunded by the Counter-Strike community. Every Major up until 2016 has had a prize pool of $250,000, and has gathered massive audiences, including thousands of viewers live in stadiums and millions watching at home on internet streams. In 2016 the prize pool for Majors was increased to $1 million.
Betting has always been a huge part of the Counter-Strike community as the large number of tournaments and high level of competition offer a lot of chances to win. You can place esports bets on all premier CS:GO tournaments at gg.bet!
