When we open a bookmaker today, these are empty. Almost all sports games have been canceled due to the word we don’t want to mention anymore, terrible for everyone. This also results in empty bookmakers. In addition to a few unknown sports matches, there are still dozens of e-Sports matches available. In the article we posted last year, we already wrote that betting on e-Sports is the fastest growing market in the online gambling industry. It is not surprising at this time that this market is now growing even faster.
Competitive video gaming raised € 1 billion for the first time last year (2019). Now that all sports competitions have been canceled, the popularity of eSports is only increasing. Even Formula 1 replaces the delayed races with a virtual esports variant. The virtual Grand Prix can be followed via Youtube and Twitch. There may be more sports that switch to eSports. Have you spotted one? Then let us know in the comments.
