One of the defining moments of any sport or anything wanting to be considered a sport is whether or not you can gamble away all of your money on it.
Well, now if you find yourself in Vegas you can officially gamble on League of Legends tournaments and lose all of your money in a different way on a video game. Betting has always been a thing for eSport, but starting this weekend you can officially find odds on the IEM Oakland League of Legends tournament at The Downtown Grand in Vegas.
The Downtown Grand in Vegas will be the first US sports book to take bets on esports starting this weekend for a League of Legends event.

So, if you’re in Las Vegas and you’ve got some money to blow you can now take a literal gamble on the tournament this weekend.
