E-sports are a very new and very interesting form of betting, which seems to evolve and gaining ground more and more, especially in the past year. Pinnacle e-sports department announced yesterday that it has now taken five million bets on e-sports markets and this number is relatively huge if you think that not many people are still aware what e-sports betting is. Pinnacle is a bookmaker who supports e-sports, after all they are sponsor at many tournaments, while at 2010 they accepted their first wager on e-sports and it was only last year that it hit the three millionth wager mark. A significant stat to consider is that if the current trend line continues, Pinnacle will take its 10 millionth bet on esports sometime in January next year.
Paris Smith, who is the CEO of Pinnacle commented on the matter: «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».

Pinnaclesports needs no introduction. It can be regarded as an Asian, American and European bookie at the same time, covering the needs of almost every player around the world. Despite the rebranding, for the majority, the book still is the favorite Pinny of the players (including me) and still the perfect destination for the pro punters. It is one of the limited real bookmakers left in the industry and one of the few where the winners are welcome. Bear in mind though that there are certain restrictions applying to this statement. If you consistently place max bets on minor leagues, you might see your betting limits being cut, or your odds shift at those leagues. On the cons, the x3 deposit rollover, the only 1 free withdrawal per month and the lack of in-play combos are a slight setback. As for the top feats, you can see the odds ripples through the Dynamic Lines and I must admit I love their excellent betting resources. The same goes for the extra low margins at the best leagues, the withdrawal limits and the rebet option. Overall, if you want to become a top-notch punter, that is your top and final destination.
