Thunderpick World Championship Returns with $1 Million Prize Pool

Published: Feb 13, 2024

Online crypto betting site Thunderpick has today announced the Thunderpick World Championship 2024, an international CS2 tournament with a $1 million prize pool. Revealed today, (Feb. 13) by release, the crypto bookmaker announced the successor to its Thunderpick World Championship 2023 online event.

Thunderpick World Championship 2024 will kick off on April 1, but this is no April Fool. It’s a record-breaking tournament for sportsbook organizers. Last year’s event had a $600,000 Bitcoin prize pool, the largest ever for a sportsbook event. The 2024 event will surpass that, making the pool an even $1 million – and this time, it’s in “cold hard cash,” as Kelly Sanders, head of strategy for Thunderpick, put it.

“The Thunderpick World Championship 2024 will be one of the most exciting tournaments of the year, featuring some of the top talent in the world of CS2,” continued Sanders.

“This tournament not only underscores our dedication to the diverse and growing esports community but also marks a new milestone in our event series. Expect intense competition and high-quality gameplay that will captivate fans and players around the world.”

Format-wise, the event will see six qualifier rounds across three global regionsEurope, North America, and, for the first time, South America. After that, a playoff bracket will decide the winner.

For the event, Thunderpick is partnering again with GRID as its official esports services provider and data partner. GRID will utilize its suite of cutting-edge tournament tools, data visualization, and infrastructure to maintain this online tournament’s integrity and security.

Commenting on the Thunderpick World Championship 2024, Fabian Logemann, head of tournament operations at GRID, praised the organizers:

“Thunderpick has significantly contributed to growing the sustainability of the CS2 esports scene and we’re proud to support this tournament with the GRID Esports Solutions.”

“Our team is looking forward to supporting this world-class CS2 championship series again, providing tournament services, and important data-points behind every incredible play to come.”

In last year’s Thunderpick World Championship 2024, FaZe Clan were victorious after a near-flawless run through both the Groups and Playoffs. That victory was part of Phase’s incredible run through the latter part of 2023, which saw the team take a podium at almost every event they were invited to.
