Casumo dips its toes into eSports!Tuesday, Jun 13, 2017 11:14
Formerly known as Thunderbirds, the roster that placed in the runner-up position at the International 6 has joined the newly-launched organisation Planet Odd. The organisation, which is financed by online casino Casumo, officially unveiled in May with divisions in Hearthstone and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The Dota 2 roster, featuring Rasmus "MiSeRy-" Filipsen, Omar "w33" Aliwi, and Roman "Resolut1on" Fomynok, achieved unprecedented success in 2016. Their second-place result at TI6 got them a total of $3.4 million. The players then proceeded to follow this result up with a top four placement at the Boston Major, as well as a victory at ESL One Genting.
The team has, unfortunately, been unable to reach the same level of results since January, as they were unable to qualify for the Dota 2 Asia Championship and also finished last at the Kiev Major in April. Prior to attending the Kiev Major, the entire roster departed their organisation, Digital Chaos, to compete independently under the name Thunderbirds.
With only two months left until the International 7, it is yet to be seen if Planet Odd will be re-invited due to their performance at the event last year, or if they will have to make their way through the regional qualifiers.
Casumo launched in early 2012 and has been moving from strength to strength over the last few years. The casino site began with only a handful of games but now there are more than 300 to try out.
Visiting the Casumo online casino site is a lot like being in a dream and on their corporate website the company says, ‘Through design, technology & innovation we aim to disrupt a young, and in many ways an immature industry, by ignoring the rules.’
Banking with Casumo
Casumo casino online gets that what really bugs Internet casino fans is when they can’t get their winnings out of a site or when they have to wait weeks or even months to get the cash into their bank accounts. That’s why Casumo casino guarantees all withdrawals are processed within 72 hours!
With regards to payment options, you can elect to use any of the market-leading payment processors like Skrill, PaySafe, Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, Ukash and wire transfer. The exact payment methods that’ll be available to you will depend slightly on whereabouts in the world you’re playing from.
You can also deposit and withdraw in GBP and Euro. Casumo online casino takes rewarding its customers to an entirely new level. The idea is that by playing casino games, you unlock new and exciting player levels and planets. These will give you bigger and better rewards.
When you play you collect points that add up to player items called ‘valuables’, as well as trophies and the more you play, the better the rewards received.
