Luxbet launch eSports betting

Luxbet Esports Betting

Online gaming has received a massive boost that will make the online gaming worlds even more exciting to partake and follow.

The Australian betting operator Tabcorp, best known for the running of the TAB, has partnered with the online gaming and entertainment firm Unikrn.

The partnership will now allow for the eSports betting community to participate in betting on live multiplayer gaming tournaments which includes League of Legends, Counter strike, Call of Duty, Dota2 and much more.

The online betting platform will be on Luxbet and an “eSports” tab has already been created and is now currently featured on the front page of the site.

The new platform will provide customers with live viewing, live discussions and competitive odds.

Tabcorp will be attempting to make eSports gambling as big as possible with CEO David Attenborough suggesting if the program is a success in Australia than expansion into the European markets is on the cards.

There are an estimated 500,000 Australian eSports fans but a move to a global scale would bring in around 200 million eSports players.

Tabcorp will be overseeing the online betting format and all of the account identification processes. The biggest concern for them will come through ensuring that there is no illegal betting activity taking place.

Attenborough has stated that cutting edge, existing technology will be used to monitor any strange results and that “every single move is captured.”

The platform has copped some criticism in regards to the underage players who participate in online gaming and could become swayed into gambling. However, Attenborough made it aware that only 29% of eSports spectators are not adults and that measures are in place to ensure that no underage gamers partake in betting.

The market has been projected to grow by 10 million players over 100 countries this year. Tabcorp will also be looking to expand the range of betting options in the near future.
