eSports has been the fastest growing element with the gambling industry, perhaps in history, as the market itself is much sought over for leadership, ownership and to be that one true powerhouse.
Now, thanks to Betting and Data provider Betradar, punters can look forward to the long-awaited availability of live betting on some of eSports most popular titles, with the view that the future holds live betting for all eSports.
Until now, betting opportunities have become more popular and more widely available but only in a Pre-Match manner with problems arising even from this, from the varying start times and, more notably, the lack of live coverage to allow bookmakers to effectively manage the events and know when to switch off odds availability at the right time.
Coming soon, PreMatch betting only will be long since forgotten as Betradar provided bookies can offer these events live in a smooth transition the same as any other sport as the markets pick up from PreMatch and switch to Live when the events starts due to the full coverage aspect provided by the provider.
Initially, Betradar will provide live betting on the League of Legends game whilst other titles are said to be coming soon with Betradar and with competitors Sportsradar recently signing up to a partnership to cover Counter Strike with PvPRO, the betting opportunities are going to soon become full, expansive and endless thanks to the initiative of data providers.
The appeal of eSports reaches out in its own right to new generations of gamers at ages far below the legal age of gambling, and the natural progression of the gambling industry means that the curve of both elements is growing at the same exciting, if not frantic, pace.
Online gaming as a competition reaches many demographics including those who do or not meet the gambling age, and those who do meet that age may or may not be interested in online gambling at the same time. Those who are put the match together of two great passions the same as football, rugby or NFL fans with betting on things they love to do, love to watch and just love every aspect of.
It’s a great time to be involved in the sports betting world for many reasons, and the continued growth of eSports as its own integer and now alongside the betting opportunities that are going to become available are going to make it even more exciting from working within the industry or being an advocate of its offering.
