If you're a fan of esports betting, you've probably heard of Pinnacle, a company that offers betting on esports, much like what happens with traditional sports. Now, the company has revealed that they've taken their five millionth bet (via SBC).
Pinnacle took their first bet back in 2010, and Paris Smith, Pinnacle's CEO, had this to say: "When Pinnacle accepted the first ever bet on esports in 2010 none of us knew if it would be a one hit wonder or could turn into something bigger. Five million bets later, our expectations have been exceeded - I think it's fair to say we're at the forefront of the most exciting and fastest growing betting markets."
As Pinnacle's three millionth bet was registered just last year, this indicates a growth curve that could see January next year hit 10 million bets. Marco Blume, Pinnacle's Trading Director, added: "Esports are written in Pinnacle's DNA and this landmark, 5 Million bets, certainly consolidates our leading position. Pinnacle has used its considerable skill in trading sports and successfully translated it to esports. It's now worldwide phenomenon and last weekend's milestone just shows how popular esports betting has become."
Do you think the growth curve will continue at this rate though?
