If you’re getting bored with sticking a pony on the races, you can expand your gambling horizons at Unikrn where you can watch esports streams and get a little action on the side.


The new platform was set up by Rahul Sood – previously the general manager of Microsoft Ventures. At the moment, customers are only able to place bets on League of Legends, but there’s a promise of more titles being added soon.

If you’re based in the US, obviously you won’t be able to partake – what with online gambling being illegal – but you can still register, spectate and chat, and even win prizes.

Speaking to GeekWire, Sood said “It’s important that we have international traffic, but it doesn’t mean people in the US won’t be using our system”, going on to mention that 60 per cent of their traffic is from outside of the US.

So head on over to Unikrn to dive into the action.
