Pinnacle’s Esports Betting Interests
Prior to becoming the FLASHPOINT Leagues official esports betting partner, Pinnacle had already had a taste of what the esports market could offer. For instance, in early 2019, the company became the official betting partner of the Esports Championship Series (ECS). There have been several other lucrative partnerships and developments in that regard as the company strives to extend its footprint across all sports-related verticals.
Clearly, the passion that Pinnacle has for esports cannot be denied and this is quite important for the nascent but rapidly growing sector. Esports betting is rapidly growing across the planet and thanks to brands like Pinnacle, the gas on that growth has just been hit.
“At the very outset we were aligned in our goals of helping the industry grow and the esports community thrive. We’ve built a solid track record, and we’re very excited about what the next chapter has in store.”Paris Smith, the chief executive of Pinnacle.
Needless to say, Pinnacle itself stands to gain quite a bit as the esports gambling market continues to grow. Being a major part of the FLASHPOINT League will definitely be a neat addition to its already very impressive resume.
