BLAST Premier is organized by BLAST ApS, a Danish eSports media production company, and is held in different cities. One constant thing is the fact that there is a live audience with big screens that immerse fans the same way CS: GO pro players get immersed. BLAST Premier events attract huge prize pools, with the Global Final 2020 and World Final 2021 attracting a whopping $1 million prize pool.
About Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
As mentioned earlier, BLAST Premier is a CS: GO tournament. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, popularized as CS: GO, is a first-person shooter video game developed by Valve in conjunction with Hidden Path Entertainment. This fourth installment in the Counter-Strike series is available on Windows, macOS, PS3, Xbox 360, and Linux.
CS: GO, just like its predecessors, pits two sides in an objective-based battle. Teams compete in different game modes that involve planting and defusing bombs. One side plays as terrorists, while the other side plays as the good guys who defuse bombs and rescue hostages.
Counter Strike Global Offensive is one of the most popular eSports in the eGaming betting world. The eSports scene boasts many BLAST Premier tournaments, including Spring and Fall groups, showdowns, and finals. BLAST Premier League enjoys media coverage and has Twitch and YouTube as its TV partners.
BLAST Premier is a prestigious tournament that partners with top brands, including Betway, Coinbase, and shipping conglomerate MAERSK. One thing that makes this first-person shooter a success is the fact that it is now fully free-to-play. There are nine game modes, including the recently released battle-royale mode dubbed Danger Zone.
