With a $1,250,000 prize pool, the BLAST.tv Paris Major is the final one in CS:GO.

Tournament organizer BLAST has partnered with video games betting platform unikrn for a multi-year partnership that kicks off with the upcoming BLAST.tv Paris Major. 

BLAST is an epicenter of action for esports fans around the world and has produced some of the most memorable moments in the history of competitive Counter-Strike play,” said unikrn CEO Justin Dellario

Unikrn relaunched last year in December in a select few markets after its acquisition by the Entain group. It is currently available in Brazil and Canada with the exception of Ontario. Earlier this year, unikrn had also announced its partnership with Team Liquid.

“Unikrn is built for these moments, when fans are looking for the deepest and best possible experience as they root on their favorite players and teams”

As part of this partnership, unikrn will also have its own 'BLAST Picks' segment. The broadcast talent on stream will predict their winners from each day’s play. The BLAST.tv predictions will also allow the community to interact and have their say on the matches’ predictions. 

Unikrn will be deeply embedded into the BLAST Paris Major fan experience with giveaways, interactive fan-led activations as well as during the official broadcast.

The best CS:GO teams compete in the final CS:GO Major, ever

The BLAST Paris Major is the final CS:GO Major and takes place from May 5-21, 2023. With the world’s best CS:GO teams in action the Paris Major is bound to have fierce competition with no team wanting to let go of the opportunity of stamping its authority on the final Major in CS:GO. 

Valve announced Counter-Strike 2, the latest game to join the Counter-Strike series. After more than a decade since CS:GO’s launch, the game will move on to a new engine - Source 2. The new game has improved graphics, brand new interactive smokes, a new sub-tick system as well as several cosmetic improvements. 

The game’s beta is currently live although only a select few are getting beta invites. Along with the Counter-Strike 2 announcement, Valve also revealed the BLAST Paris Major would be the only Major in 2023. The next Major, the first one for Counter-Strike 2 would be the PGL Copenhagen Major in 2024.
