Vegas is trying to figure out what to do with esports
And that means Vegas casinos are trying to figure out how to get millennial nerds to blow their money in a resort. The problem is that these nerds don’t gamble. They like to have their heads firmly up the ass of video games.
But he said coming up with ways to attract millennials is a necessity for the casino industry as a whole, adding that esports players could be cultivated to embrace casinos for video game competitions the way their parents and grandparents went there to play slot machines.
Gambling requires discretionary income and free time, things that people starting their careers or families may not have in abundance, said David Schwartz, director of the Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
“The big question is whether people who are 40 or 20 now will begin to play casino games as they get older,” Schwartz said. “This isn’t a given.”
Bank on giant multi-million dollar tournaments to get these weirdos to drop a thousand or so for an entry fee.
