Fantasy Esports And Real-Money Gaming Are Becoming Increasingly Popular In India

The concept of esports has long been debated. It was only recently that fantasy sports, real-money gaming, and skill-based online games were all lumped together under the umbrella word “esports,” at least in India. In 2020, MPL raised $90 million (£65 million) in a Series C round, while WinZO raised $18 million (£13 million) in a Series B round. Paytm Very First Games is also backed by Paytm, an Indian e-commerce payment company valued at around $10 billion (£7.3 billion). On these platforms, there are a lot of casual and hyper-casual games.
