Unibet, ranked as the number two best online casino group by LiveCasino.com, is now making inroads into the world of eSports.

eSports Streamer Alan "Hotted89" Widmann is now also an ambassador to Unibet.

“It's something I'm really proud to be a part of,” Wildmann told PokerNews.com in an exclusive interview.  “I've been in love with poker ever since I've been to the Unibet Open in Malta in 2016, that was my first Unibet event. I actually busted first in that [Esports players only invite] event; it was tens versus ace-queen, I still remember it. That motivated me a lot; I'm a very competitive player and that motivated me to learn the game and try to get better. At the next [Unibet Esports Battle] event, I was invited again and I won that one, so that was a good improvement from last to first [laughs]. Ever since then, I've been really active in poker.”

The relationship illustrates a growing marriage between poker and eSports.

It was just last week that we learned eSports would join forces with this year's World Series of Poker.

For Wildmann, the new role at Unibet seems like a natural transition.

"After the Esports battles, I wanted to be more involved in poker and wanted to make it part of my brand that I've been running for about six years. I wanted to commit to something good. I'm very selective with the companies that I work with and everyone at Unibet has been amazing. It's been a pleasure and I thought it would be a great fit to work together. So we had a few meetings and the rest is history."
