Abios receives official esports data feeds for tier 1 EFG and BLAST Premier tournaments to power partners across the Kambi network 

STOCKHOLM, JULY 11TH, 2024 – Esports odds provider Abios and data provider Bayes Esports have signed an extension to their data partnership, which will enable Abios to continue utilising official real-time data in Counter-Strike and Dota 2 to power its odds feeds and engagement features for partners within and beyond the Kambi network. 

Through Bayes Esports, Abios will gain access to official real-time data feeds from several high-tier tournaments in Dota 2 and Counter-Strike 2. These encompass some of the most-watched competitions in the world, including BLAST Pro Series, ESL Pro League and IEM Katowice in Counter-Strike, and ESL One in Dota 2. Counter-Strike 2 accounts for over 50% of total esports betting turnover among Kambi operators, with the ESL Pro League driving 13% of esports turnover in Q2 2024. 

Abios ensures higher uptime and more accurate pricing thanks to the highly granular data from Bayes Esports which they get directly from the IP rights holders.
