Consumer research agency 2CV and market researcher ProdegeMR reported esports gambling revenue is set to double from the $7 billion (£5.8 billion) earned in 2019 worldwide to over $14 billion (£11.5 billion) in 2020 in wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
Many are trying to assess if they are making the right decisions to capitalise on the COVID related growth within the esports betting vertical. Now more than ever, operators are requiring assistance from informed and authentic esport suppliers to build a structure that works from them. Services such as payments, live data capture of esport tournaments and esport facing marketing play a vital part to support those who wish to double down on the esport betting sector.
