Steve Aoki just became the owner of an eSports team ... and he's crossing his fingers the investment's worth it.

We got Steve out in NYC where he told us about his fresh partnership with the Vegas gaming org. Rogue, which he says is "crushing it" in the 1st-person shooter Overwatch.

Steve has reason to join the new gold rush. The industry draws hundreds of millions of players and viewers, and the numbers are growing each year. Tourney cash payouts are also in the millions ... and eSports videos rank among YouTube's highest viewed.

It's a bit of a gamble ... but with stats like these, Steve sounds confident eSports will pay off. And if you want a taste of what he dropped into ... just watch.
