Internet gaming group Pinnacle has announced the launch of their new eSports hub, which will allow punters to have an enhanced betting experience on video games.
The company decided to re-launch the product in order to offer an optimized way to place wagers on eSports. The betting vertical is taking off, as more and more young bettors flock to watching professionals play video games in competitions. The hub has specific game focus, including Counter Strike, Dota 2, Overwatch, Rocket League, and more.
Speaking about the product Pinnacle Trading Director Marco Blume said, "Pinnacle passed the five million eSport bet milestone earlier this year, and I was projecting to reach 10 million by January 2018. With the relaunch of our eSports Hub I may have to revise that prediction."
Pinnacle Marketing Director Harry Lang also commented, noting: "Pinnacle has been at the forefront of esports betting since 2010 and we are totally committed to maintaining our position as the global leader in the future. Our new eSports Hub is designed to support this ambition; we have combined our exceptional odds in a user-friendly format and published a huge portal of educational content so new and established esports bettors can develop and improve alongside us."
I'm not much into that and maybe I never will be but obviously the younger generations like it and that is all that is important for the companies in this sector to continue to develop and offer new possibilities for the growing player's base.
