GI Huddle exclusive: How payments are integral to both esports & gaming

Four esteemed guests joined the GI Huddle for their latest episode, a roundtable courtesy of Neosurf and colleagues.

Joining Gambling Insider for an insightful 35+ minutes of discussion were a panel of experts specialising in payments, esports and betting, all of whom were able to comment on the intersection between the three areas.

Among the topics discussed were how far esports has grown to date, how esports, gaming and payments all link together, the differences between esports in Europe and the US, and more.

Esports players and viewers now aren’t necessarily just a young audience anymore, meaning there is a growing number of opportunities to engage those who love to play and consume esports content.

But where are the esports gamblers coming from, and how do they fit into the picture here?

Our panellists on the case were: Dave Harris, MD Guinevere Capital, Olga Golikova, Head of Billing at Parimatch Tech, Gareth Jones, Country Manager (ANZ) and esports lead at Neosurf and Magnus Leppäniemi, President of esports, Esports Entertainment Group.
