How Popular is Betting on eSports?
Very! Electronic sports are here, and they're kind of a big deal. The current eSports market is valued somewhere around $900 million, a number that just continues to grow each year. Major tournaments will bring in upwards of 5 million viewers at a time, awarding total pool prizes of over $20 million. And, where there is money to be won, you can be sure that bettors will follow.
What Can You Can Bet On?
It used to be that eSports tournaments were small, local affairs, with only a few die hard fans watching. Those days are long gone. Many sportsbooks will now offer wagers on big-ticket events. These include - but are in no way limited to - the League of Legends World Championship, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, and the grand-daddy of them all, The International: Dota 2 Championship.
