Last weekend, UMG Gaming launched their partnership with the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Players can go head-to-head on eSports titles like Madden and FIFA as part of a larger eSports event. Compete against players across North America to test your skills and grow your gaming community.
The co-branded tournament and match play can be played online as well as live from the Palms where they are hosting tournaments and brackets with cash prizes, Palms room nights and resort credits for Madden 18, FIFA 18 and NHL 18.
The live tournaments event, the UMG eSports Bash at The Palms, is launching next Friday, October 27 and will continue for three weekends. The event will be hosting live bracket for the three sports titles inside Social Table, the Palms pop-up sports bar and lounge. There isn’t anything like experiencing the excitement, competition and celebration in-person and the eSports Bash will bring you all of that, plus the contagious atmosphere of Las Vegas.
CEO, Dave Antony, is just as excited about the launch of the tournaments as we are; “UMG has always been focused on bringing competitive gaming to you, the gamer. Bringing live events into a casino setting is a natural next step for us. We were thrilled to find a partner in Station Casinos for this series. They embraced our vision of catering to all gamers, pros and non-pros alike. We are pleased to continue to serve our gaming community in new ways.”
