Abios and Kambi bring esports into play with new whitepaper
Gross gaming revenue for the esports sector is expected to reach $960m by 2026, according to a new white paper released by Abios and Kambi.
The whitepaper, entitled ‘Bring esports into play’, discusses how sportsbooks can effectively engage and retain audiences within the esports space, as well as looking at the ways in which operators can “navigate different regulatory requirements and bring light to the pitfalls the industry is facing”.
Oskar Fröberg, CEO and Founder of Abios, commented: “Our mission has always been to facilitate the growth of the esports ecosystem. Whether it be through providing data or visualisation products to various stakeholders in the industry, or by sharing our knowledge within the esports space.
“As we’re venturing further into the betting scene with Kambi, we want to share our combined findings in esports and betting with sportsbooks and other interested stakeholders.
“By releasing a white paper providing insights into the different aspects of esports, we’ll hopefully help someone in creating even better esports products, or building something entirely new.”
Offering his insights, Filip Kristersson, Esports Product Manager at Unibet, shares his thoughts on the ways betting companies can capitalise on the esports market.
Oliver Lamb, SVP Risk & Compliance at Kambi, outlines the need to protect the integrity of esports while Oskar Fröberg and Tomas Ericsson at Abios shed light on the latest trends in esports betting
