NEVADA STRETCHES OUT BETTING OPTIONS TO INCLUDE MORE ESPORTS
With pro sports leagues taking a dip and casinos game houses getting closed to the public, canceling and/or postponing their activities in the chaos of the coronavirus “boss” we’re battling, plus Summer Olympics being pushed back to 2021, and Macao, China, the world’s largest casino market, having gamblers evaporate from their facilities causing a financial crash and plunge, Nevada has decided to step up and break the chains, taking a gamble on more betting options for Esports. We are the future guys!
As a safe, online option in the vortex of the COVID-19 defensive health measures, the esports market continues to grow and seem more and more a great way to ward off the financial decline. So, the natural thing to do was to allow esports to fill in the coronablanks. Just last month, Nevada expanded the state’s gambling opportunities when it approved wagering on season 11 of the Counter-Strike ESL Pro League.
Now, the Nevada Gaming Control Board has authorized three more leagues to be included in the betting options: Activision Blizzard’s (NASDAQ:ATVI) 2020 Overwatch League, and Tencent’s (OTC:TCEHY) 2020 North America League of Legends Championship Series, plus the 2020 League of Legends European Championship. It has also authorized five new esports events, including this year’s Call of Duty League, Overwatch League and the North America League Championship Series (NA LCS), European Championship and European Masters in League of Legends. Wager away!
