This trend is expected to continue as eSports main audience of high net worth individuals aged 18-35 are looking to use new and interesting ways of betting and eSports is one of the mostly used solutions for all of them.
The newly presented eSports front-end was a corner stone, as compared to other products, it actually answers the Millennials’ high expectations of UX/UI on a betting brand.
