About Esports Betting Report
EsportsBettingReport.com is dedicated to covering industry news and developments at the intersection of eSports and gambling.
ESBR is published by Chris Grove, who also publishes Online Poker Report, which covers the regulated U.S. online poker and gambling industry, and Legal Sports Report, which covers daily fantasy sports and the regulated sports betting industries.
Esports Betting Report focuses on the global intersection of esports and gambling.
That intersection occurs at two primary points: cash gambling at sites like betway esports and skin betting sites. Esports betting is not limited to betting on the outcome of esports matches; many skin gambling sites offer a variety of casino-style games, including lottery, roulette, and coin flips.
Our coverage includes analysis of the market for esports gambling, the legal and regulatory environment surrounding esports gambling, and the evolution of esports betting products.
We also touch on broader developments within the esports economy that have a connection - direct or potential - to betting, including sponsorships, esports broadcasts or similar media developments, and investments in the esports space.
