ThriveFantasy, a daily fantasy sports and esports app for player props, has announced it has signed a preferred partnership to become an official daily fantasy esports platform for Super League Gaming, a gaming and esports content and community platform.
The partnership will see ThriveFantasy expand its capabilities as a provider of esports fantasy games in the industry. Its app offers contests for traditional sports such as the NFL, NBA, and MLB, as well as esports contests in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Dota 2, League of Legends, and Valorant, with more titles coming soon.
