Could Golden Tee Be The Next Big eSports Market?

The Golden Tee World Championship is coming up next week, there are some huge prizes up for grabs. Players from all around the world will meet up in Las Vegas to compete for tens of thousands of dollars, local punters now have the chance to wager on the outcome .

Over $100K Up For Grabs

The Golden Tee World Championship will take place from 2 to 10 of June at The Orleans Hotel and Casino. It is guaranteed to be an exciting event, as there are over $100 000 in prizes available. 32 of the best players will be competing for a top prize of $20 000. That’s more than some players earn by competing in the PGA tournament !

Could This Help Diversify eSports Betting?

eSports betting is becoming increasingly popular in the online gaming market. Players can wager on League of Legends, Starcraft, Dota 2 and CS:GO tournaments – and, it’s great to see a more diverse range of games being offered in betting markets.

Golden Tee could be the beginning of a much more varied esports arena. There are plenty of esports games that are popular among players but not yet available to wager on. It would be great to see the following games make their into the esports betting market:

- Injustice
- Rocket League
- Overwatch
- Street Fighter
- Hearthstone

Currently, the esports betting market is dominated by shooters, and we’d love to see more of these games available to wager on. eSports betting is the perfect solution for people who want to have a punt but aren’t sports fans – and, there’s the potential to diversify the marketing even further to include even more types of gamers.

Will Golden Tee Betting Be Available Online?

While there is no word yet on whether Golden Tee betting will be made available at online bookmakers like William Hill and Ladbrokes – but, our hopes are high. If it’s going to be legalised in Nevada, there is always the chance that players around the world will have the chance to do so online.
