How can a traditional bookmaker start a dialogue with Millennial eSports fans?
The iGaming Super Show planned a series of dedicated conferences for the sports betting industry. BtoBet led the panel “eSports: Bringing Home the Millennials”. The panel covered strategies, opportunities and the latest trends in the emerging and fast growing eSports market. Editor of iGaming Business magazine, Stephen Carter, moderated the discussion, and talked to BtoBet’s Head of Sportsbook Davide Ruggeri and Phil Kornyshey, Co-founder of PVP eSports.

Operators can expand their businesses beyond the traditional sports betting, through suitable tools, personalised proposals and flexible software.”
