Dissecting eSports to learn how to turn it into a casino model

04 Sep 2019

The future of the casino relies on the next generation. To create a roadmap into what a casino floor will look like in the future, we must first familiarize ourselves with the types of gaming that newer generations enjoy, and that will bring them out of their living rooms and into the casino.

 

  • How should we look at an esport tournament? – in terms of pure profitability? As a conduit towards wagering? As a source of entertainment which will bring new customers in the door to convert into returning customers?
  • What online esports will look like with the integration into igaming
  • How to match the game and level of play with a specific casino model: What games are popular by region and by demographic
  • Does esports include skill-based gaming
  • Can inclusion of esports help a casino regardless of whether wagering is implemented

 

Learning outcomes:

  • The difference between sports and esports betting
  • Understanding the market: How and when gamers wager
  • Connecting the play to the communities
  • Considerations to keep in mind when designing an esports betting site
  • The time-line for esports integration
