Esports Investments Make Sense

We believe that Fred Done has made a fantastic decision. Besides, more and more millionaires and billionaires from the betting industry are seeing the potential of the esports betting industry.

The Gen-Z and Millennial generation are more interested in esports betting than standard betting. As a result, it’s only reasonable that we see more of these esports investments.

“I am delighted to have launched GGIntel in one of the most rapidly growing and exciting industries in the world.

The aim of GGIntel is to be the global leader in providing transparent, in-depth esports information and education through engaging content written and produced by experts in the field. We are already off to a blinding start, and we’ve only just begun.”

The Esports Potential

Streaming websites like YouTube and Twitch are made out of 85% males and 15% females. They are all between the ages of 18 and 34. That is the most common age of betters.  Major brands realized this first. Companies like Coca-Cola, Mercedes-Benz, T-Mobile, and Nike started spending increased amounts of money into esports sponsorships.

Consequently, sold-out stadiums are expected for all major esports tournaments in the future, and brands don’t want to miss on that kind of attention.

Certainly, we at welcome the competition. Besides, the more coverage esports gets, the faster this industry that we all love will grow.
