Lindsay Poss is a gaming industry insider and a recurring guest on Paul Dawalibi’s Business of Esports Podcast. In a recent article, Poss explained that esports betting is now available in Virginia, and this could lead to massive growth for the state’s gaming industry.
“By legalizing esports betting, Virginia is recognizing this growth and allowing for the industry to continue its growth,” Poss Writes. “Legalizing esports betting in Virginia was a smart move. It drives revenue for the state and gives an already booming industry room to grow. Other states should follow suit.”
Gamers were recently permitted to place bets on esports matches in the state of Virginia. This coincides with gaming’s growth during the Pandemic. Reports indicate that money spent on esports during the COVID-19 Pandemic increased by 76%.
