eSport is on his way to becoming a real success story. The growth rate is incredibly high. Due to it´s raising popularity it becomes famous for betting on eSport events as well. It is still at the beginning, and there is apart from a very few exemptions, not a real standard established how betting can be organized to attract the audience of eSport. The website mybettingdeals.com is one of the sites where a customer can find the first reviews and services around betting on eSport.

Frank Zielkowski the founder of mybettingdeals.com said: The main mistake oft he actual eSport offering from major sports book operator is, that they have no clue how to present this sports phenomenon in an attractive way to reflect the heart blood of eSport. This sport is so dynamic and has so many differences in play events that the actual data provider and the operator didn’t find the right key to success yet. Unikrn is one exemption and on its way to developing a solid business case.
