Observations From Compiling Our Active Skin Gambling Site Tracker

Published: Oct 3, 2017 - Last Updated: Apr 8, 2024

For the past month, EsportsBets has been composing a gambling site tracker. Essentially, the tracker is a spreadsheet chronicling every current, public betting website, along with the types of games it offers.

While we are not ready to make it public, we have made some interesting discoveries in the process of unearthing all the different websites, from the popular to the obscure.

For starters, case-opening websites seem to be more popular than any other type. This isn’t particularly surprising given how much revenue Valve nets from its case-opening business. It makes sense more websites would also want to jump into the fray and get their own slice of the pie.

Apart from case opening, a lot of websites feature classic casino games, like roulette and blackjack, with some offering dice and coin flip options as well.

As for the currency these websites use, a lot of them are still focused on valuable CSGO skins for both deposits and withdrawals. Other websites use real or crypto-currencies in addition to skins, or as their sole currencies.

All in all, the Valve cease and desist doesn’t seem to have killed the gambling scene. If anything, it only broke up the monopoly that big sites like CSGO Lounge had on the scene. Perhaps in the future we will find a proper way of making the tracker available to the public and let the community enjoy it as well!
