We here at ENCE are delighted to welcome Nordicbet, a Swedish Sportsbook Casino and Poker company, as one of its sponsors as of today. This collaboration gives a new level of access for Nordicbet in the world of eSports. They have already taken the first steps but now they will not only have Joona “natu” Leppänen as a Brand Ambassador but all of ENCE’s expertise within this emerging business. Both parties share a similar vision in responsible playing – both in eSports and betting..
Sara Nunes, Brand Manager at Nordicbet had this to say:
Nordicbet has been working with Joona ‘natu’ Leppänen for some time now and it has been such a fantastic cooperation enabling us to take the partnership to the next level. The immensely growing market of eSports and the talented team of ENCE brought us a great opportunity to be the forerunners and the proud sponsors of the first truly professional eSports team from Finland.
Nordicbet offers a wide variety of odds for the most popular eSports titles and followed leagues and tournaments actively. This includes titles such as Counter-Strike, Dota2 and events such as MLG Columbus 2016 Major that is ongoing this week.
NordicBet is the original Scandinavian online Sportsbook, covering all of the major events you love to bet on including La Liga, the English Premier League, NBA, NFL, tennis Grand Slams, KHL and NHL. Our motto is that we ‘Love the Game’ and we’ve demonstrated that by being the official sponsors of the Champions Hockey League (CHL) for the past two seasons. We’re here to serve Scandinavian bettors so we pay special attention to top local leagues like Allsvenskan, Tippeligaen, Veikkausliiga, SHL and SM-Liiga. Sport is important at all levels to us so we also focus on the lower leagues, in some cases going all the way down to the fifth divisions. Why? Because as we told you, we ‘Love the Game’. The NordicBet Sportsbook offers an incredibly comprehensive range of betting markets on both pre-match and LiveBet, with endless side markets and ‘Player Specials’. We also offer a Livestreaming service where you can watch top events like Serie A and Ligue 1 football, WTA tennis and NBA free of charge.
We have a market-leading online casino with all of the most popular slots like Gonzo’s Quest and Starburst and new games added every week. Try our Jackpot games for life-changing wins, including Mega Fortune Dreams and Hall of Gods. We also boast all the classic table games including Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat and if you prefer to play them with a real person dealing, take on the house in our Live Casino. For those who prefer Video Poker and other quirky Casino games, we offer those too.
NordicBet Poker runs 24/7 and includes 7 card stud, 5 card stud, Texas Hold’em, Omaha and Razz. It operates on the Microgaming platform.
There are frequent promotions, including Freerolls and prizepool cash tournaments, helping new players build up their bankroll. So choose your Poker alias and join the fun at NordicBet Poker.
Joona Leppänen, Marketing and PR at ENCE eSports had this to say:
I’ve already had the pleasure of working with Nordicbet as its Brand Ambassador in the past few months and the collaboration has been very successful. We’ve managed to already establish a position within the eSports market for Nordicbet but now with ENCE we take things to the next level. This means various competitions, blogs and other activities to serve our fan base.
ENCE eSports was first launched in April of 2013 as a project to bring true professionalism to the Finnish eSports landscape. Through 2013 and 2014 we dominated the domestic competitive field by winning all the important tournament titles in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Starcraft 2 and Tekken Tag2.
In 2016 we have come back to continue on that journey in a pursuit to taking things to the next level. Under our wings we have the first ever Finnish CS:GO team that play as fulltime professionals and we have some of the most inspiring pioneers of Finnish eSports managing the organisation.
