Casi­nos em­brace es­ports.

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

N.J.» Casi­nos AT­LANTIC CITY, in New Jer­sey, Ne­vada and else­where are slowly em­brac­ing com­pet­i­tive video game tour­na­ments as a way to help their bot­tom lines. But the money is com­ing from rent­ing ho­tel rooms to the young play­ers and sell­ing them food and drinks, not from turn­ing them into gam­blers. The video game tour­na­ments are known as es­ports and are a rapidly grow­ing in­dus­try around the world, with in­dus­try re­ports say­ing they gen­er­ated $500 mil­lion last year and soon could be a $1.5 bil­lion in­dus­try.
