With esports continuing to grow and evolve, its betting engagement has also rapidly increased amongst a wide demographic.
Nonetheless, it has led to challenges involving esports bookmaking, as operators need to undertake compliance strategies to navigate location-specific laws and cultural norms?
On this week’s ESI Focus, Craig Levine, Co-CEO of ESL Gaming; Marc Brody, Vice President of Business Development at Bally’s Interactive; and Daniel Schnapp, Partner at Sheppard Mullin, discuss the current state of bookmaking in esports.
In the podcast, the group analyse a range of subjects such as gambling’s role in adding revenue streams, and even how wagering can work with fantasy esports to spread awareness of the industry’s potential.
This is the third episode in ESI Focus’s series on Law in Esports, presented by Sheppard Mullin.
