Malta – Spinola Gaming enters eSports lottery sectorBy Lewis - 28 January 2021
Spinola Gaming has announced the world’s first eSports-based and customisable lotteries. The products have gained interest in the LatAm and Asian markets, with LatAm eSports operators and suppliers in discussions about integrating Spinola’s new and updated eSports lottery platform.
The eSports lottery products are built around integrating global lotteries, custom eSports based lottery products, digitised scratch cards, along with instant spin and win games, designed around eSports events and tournaments in perspective.
With player and viewership numbers increasing sharply around the key esport gaming titles, operators have seen a massive increase in new registrations. Spinola Gaming has said it envisions the eSports market to increase even further for the next two to three years, and the pandemic has acted as a catalyst for the eSports betting market.
Thomas Mahoney, COO of Spinola Gaming, commented: “The future of eSports is very likely to spill into mobile games, which will reduce barriers of entry, and allow even more games and gamers to come pouring in.
“Although lottery games are seen as one of the oldest types of gaming verticals, and eSports is considered one of the newest, we believe that both verticals can work hand in hand to provide the best experience possible for our clients’ players.
“We’ve seen great growth in LatAm from an online lottery perspective, and with all the indications showing eSports to grow rapidly there, I’d say LatAm, as a region is one to watch in 2021.”
