(SoloAzar Exclusive - United States).- We had the opportunity to talk with the director of Gameacon and CEC. He explains why you must not miss this year’s edition.

Interview with Ari Fox 5 days before CEC Las Vegas 2019

The Casino eSports Conference is a two-day hands-on event connecting the casino world directly to the esport players, marketers, developers, products, services, event providers, lawyers and educators.  This event provides the most direct and informative connections to facilitate the infrastructure for all gaming establishments looking to incorporate the esport gaming world, as well as iGaming and skill based gaming. In addition, this year's CEC will include topics and conversation addressing the new legal developments regarding sports betting in the United States.

“This is huge – a huge missed opportunity if you don’t take action now and explore eSports as a future-proofing strategy. In 2016, the eSports betting market reached $5.5 billion – and that’s forecast to grow to $13 billion as early as next year, a growth of over 130%. And that's not all – 82% of study respondents believe that eSports betting will catch up to the major US sports within just two years”.

The New Era for Casinos and Wagering

4 & 5 September 2019, Luxor Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, USA

Interview with Ari Fox:

-¿How does the new era for casinos and wagering looks like?

The new Era for Casinos and wagering has already begun. This year alone will have close to 5 billion US dollars wagered on video game competitions or esports. The world of esports is now main stream and part of our everyday life. It is mentioned in TV shows, the news and even in movies. Although many casinos and bookies do not understand esports. They compare it to traditional sports which doesn’t make sense. Esports is more entertainment and needs to be approached differently, but when they finally do understand it they will realize that it is even bigger than conventional sports.

-¿What is going to be the main theme?

The Main theme is teaching the casino and gambling industries on how to make money with esports.

-¿Could you tell us more about the speakers at the CEC?

We will have many speakers at the CEC. The president of Tiato Games, the originator of Space Invaders, will be present through a video presentation from Japan. The president of Atari will also give a video presentation from France. There will be many international people present. Many from Europe as well.

-¿Why the gaming community shouldn’t miss it?

The gaming community should not miss the opportunity to get involved in the gambling world because if you look at the numbers 5 billion wagered this year alone they will see that this is more money made than the entire esport eco-system. There is money to be made, it just isn’t being managed properly yet.

-Fortnite and Dota 2 champs earned more than Wimbledon (tennis) and Masters (golf) winners this year. ¿Do you think eSports will be more lucrative than traditional sports?

Esports will be more lucrative for gamers than traditional sports. However, it will ebb and flow. The average age range for someone that plays video games competitively is from about 18 years old to 26 years old. Also they do not always win every tournament.
