Today’s generation of gamers just eliminated the stereotypes when it comes to playing online games. If before, gamers were viewed as weird and nerdy-looking internet geeks, today, the rise of popular gamers redefined how the internet gaming community is viewing those who they follow.
No longer a men’s arena, the openness of the online gaming community to all types of gamers – regardless of their gender and other categories – has paved the way for some female gamers that definitely contributed to the growth of ESports betting. That’s why when YouTube Gaming was launched, a huge number of female streamers had also found their way towards the limelight. While these gamers undeniably have the skills when playing, they also look definitely hot and beautiful.
