Top betting platform Rivalry has announced the establishment of mobile esports betting markets on its platforms. Rivalry’s leading operators have recently tried to discover the growing value in mobile esports. To capitalise on that value, Rivalry’s betting markets will be expanded to include mobile esports.
Mobile esports have recently emerged as a terrific discovery for those knee-deep in the space. For some, mobile esports lack the same ‘validity’ as desktop or console esports. With Rivalry now funding some of the most popular mobile esports titles, the sector is moving closer to conventional esports.
Mobile esports has grown in popularity in recent years. Mobile games, especially free-to-play titles like PUBG Mobile, COD Mobile, and Fortnite, have fueled this expansion. Steven Salz, CEO and Co-Founder of Rivalry, said in a statement:
Not everyone has a powerful desktop computer or a gaming system at home, but virtually everyone today has a smartphone. This creates a rich and interesting worldwide mobile gaming environment. We think this platform has a bright future.
Esports betting has exploded in popularity in the previous year or so. The UK Gambling Commission stated in 2020 that esports betting has increased 2992 percent year-on-year. With more top-tier events than ever, esports is quickly becoming one of the most popular betting locations.
Rivalry now hopes to expand the sector by allowing mobile esports betting. These tournaments are clearly a niche issue, but there is an audience for them. Many high-profile esports tournaments now have multi-million dollar prize pools, attracting players from all over the world.
Rivalry’s mobile esports services will include Mobile Legends, League of Legends Wild Rift, CODM, PUBG Mobile, and Free Fire. If you enjoy esports betting, don’t miss out on the mobile esports betting options.
