Game data company GRID has announced a partnership with B2B esports odds provider Oddin.gg.
As a result, GRID will provide Oddin with official feeds from its data platform to power the company’s betting services.
Based in Berlin, GRID gathers and monetises in-game esports data. It holds exclusive data rights for various titles and competitions, including this year’s Dota Pro Circuit in North America, West Europe and China. Its other partners include Riot Games, bet365, PGL and FACEIT, among others.
Earlier this month, GRID worked with Riot Games to launch the VALORANT Data Portal, which is accessible for all 30 partner teams of the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT). Moreover, early last year the company spoke with Esports Insider about the GRID Open Platform, a free-to-use service that enables access to in-game data.
In August last year, Oddin closed a Series A funding round worth $4.5m (~£3.7m). Last March, the company agreed a deal to supply its odds feed to Betway, and has announced similar deals with companies such as LOOT.BET. It also recently announced a partnership with tournament platform Epulze for the Dota 2 Pro Circuit in Southeast Asia. Last year, the company hired former Bayes Esports executive Mark Balch as its Strategic Director.
Marek Suchar, Co-founder & Managing Director, Partnerships at Oddin.gg, commented on the partnership: “We are thrilled to be working with GRID. There are strong unifying aspects of our two businesses, and we believe that these elements will help us build a truly exceptional solution.
“The partnership helps us offer our clients the most engaging product in the esports industry enabling us to continue providing the best services to bookmakers and platforms across the globe.”
