BLAST Bounty Hunt

This is Dota 2 esports like you've never witnessed before. The BLAST Bounty Hunt features a dynamic prize pool that not only rewards or punishes the team for every match win/loss, but also includes in-game achievements - called "bounties" - that teams can fulfill to earn more money, upping the ante for literally every single match. With OG Esports, Team Secret, Nigma, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Alliance and Team Liquid competing for the US$145,000 prize pool, expect high tension digital bloodshed to ensue. Dota 2 fans can also now get closer to the action by participating in the Fan Prediction Game to win cash and vote on Additional Bounties to include for teams to challenge themselves with.

The BLAST Bounty Hunt will be held from 9 - 13 Jun, with the broadcast available on the eGG Network TV channel, along with BLAST's Twitch and YouTube channel.
