What are skins?
Skins are virtual items that can be used in games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) or Dota 2. The term “skin” is derived from the typical function of these virtual items: changing the appearance of a player’s in-game avatar, weapons, or equipment.
According to Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, a research firm, more than 3 million people wagered $2.3 billion worth of skins on the outcome of e-sport matches in 2015. In 2016, this figure grew by two-fold and reached $5 billion.
As per analytics of Eilers & Krejcik Gaming and Narus Advisors, about 40% of the total 5 billion market in 2016 were betting on the results of cybersport matches and tournaments. Player wagers his skins on winning his team.

Understanding Skin Market
The market for skin gambling is distributed across a handful of dominant products. Sportsbook-style betting (wagers on esports matches) is the largest vertical. The second most popular is jackpot-style games, essentially lotteries where players receive tickets based on the value of their deposited skins. Simple forms Notably, while skin-based slot machines do exist, they are infrequently found and appear to garner little-to-no interest from esports fans.
This diversity is one reason why skin gambling handle is so much larger than esports cash gambling handle. But even after adjusting for that difference (i.e., comparing skin-based esportsbook betting to cash-based esportsbook betting), skin gambling is still some six times larger than cash gambling. In terms of market participants, the skin gambling industry grew quickly from a handful to hundreds of sites in the course of a year. The vast majority of those sites were variations on the basic jackpot product theme. Ultimately, we believe the bulk of handle in the skin betting industry was generated by roughly fifteen sites.
