An Introductions to eSports

The rise of eSports has been incredible over the past few years. This crossover between gaming and competitive sports play has an army of fans and has recently hit the headlines for the sheer size of the prize money on offer.

There are many different games which come under the eSports banner, most of them are team-based combat games such as the hugely popular CS:GO, League of Legends and Dota 2. We are now seeing eSports branch out a little more though, especially towards sport with Fifa 20 hitting the market.

What Makes a Great eSports Betting Site?

The world of eSports has been growing for the past decade, to the point now where many people are involved, either by playing, watching online, attending live or betting on the action taking place. The eSports betting market place is only set to get bigger and better in the coming years, and if more people get involved then bookmakers are only going to push their service further and expand it more.

For anyone looking at betting sites thinking about eSports betting for the first time, there has never been a time as good as now to join in.

So, what makes a great eSports betting site?

Variety of Games and Betting Markets

You may not want to bet on everything at the very start, but you should still look for the biggest service you can find. Look out for bookmakers that offer betting on games such as Dota 2, League of Legends, CS:GO, Fortnite, Starcraft II and many more.

Having an extensive service, even if you don’t use it, is a great sign when looking at betting sites. This means they take eSports seriously, are more likely to be at the forefront of new creations and are more likely to have bonus offers on specifically for eSports.

How Many Events are Covered?

Again, this has an importance to all because if a bookmaker has betting available for many events then they are going to be seen as a company that takes eSports seriously. However, you also want options when you are betting yourself.

Look for companies that focus on much more than the big events, look for betting sites that offer odds across many different events, even those that aren’t televised. You don’t have to use them all, but when looking at the events on offer, the more the better.

What Bet Types Can You Use on eSports?

There are many ways to bet on eSports, make sure you have them available to you. Betting has evolved a lot since the start, with more markets created and the addition of in play betting to give you even more choice.

Here are just some of the ways you can bet on eSports:

  • Outright tournament winner
  • Match winner
  • Map winner
  • Handicap betting on matches
  • Total kills, first kill and handicap kills
  • Over/Under total rounds

There are many ways to bet on eSports, make sure that when you look at betting sites you view the markets and what you will be able to bet on.

Are eSports Bookies Licensed?

There are many major betting sites accepting wagers on eSports now, so you are able to find one that is licensed. This is a very important step when taking part in any kind of betting, so look out for this.

A licensed site will allow you to relax and enjoy your time, placing wagers and taking advantage of any bonus offers you receive. With many big names offering an eSports betting service that are licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, you can find a safe and fair environment to play in.

How to Win Betting on eSports

How to Win Betting on eSports Infographic

Although some people may tell you otherwise, it is possible to make a profit while you are gambling. One area of real growth over the past few years has been gambling on eSports, and many people are looking for ways in which they can make a profit betting on these events and tournaments. The good news is that profiting from eSports betting is achievable, but you have to know how to make good picks and be a very good gambler. Being a very good gambler is something that only a select few people can do, by following the steps below you will make yourself better and put yourself in a position where you can make a profit.

1. Create a Staking Plan

Betting is a long term game, and it is vital that you insert rules to ensure that you bet the same way from month to month, and year to year. The most important rule is a staking plan, something you must implement if you want to be successful. This will ensure your stakes are kept the same and in context regardless of your recent form. One of the biggest mistakes made is people who stake more to chase their recent losses, or stake more because they are on a roll and having winners. Both will have a negative effect on your profit eventually.

2. Don’t be Tempted by Huge Accumulator Odds

Another common gambling mistake is to go for the big win every time. Build up a small and steady profit is something you can do by using your skill. Having a big accumulator win will make you profit, but it is usually down to luck as much as it is down to judgement. Refrain from placing big long shot accumulators to make your money, instead set out with a plan to bet sensibly and make a small profit each week, over a long period of time.

3. Bet What You Can Afford to Lose

No one likes losing, but if you lose money that you can’t really afford to lose then it will hurt even more. This is a dangerous game, and you have to remember that gambling is supposed to be a fun pastime. If you are betting with money you cannot afford to lose then you are doing things wrong, and not having fun. If this is you then either take a break or cut your stakes immediately, by doing this you will have a much better overall experience.

4. Trust Your Judgement

As well as being a good gambler, you need to be able to pick out winners. If you think you are an expert and you can do that then you must trust your judgement. You may have a bad spell where you struggle, but at these moments you have to dig deep and trust what you know. If you are the expert you think, and you are good enough to make a profit then things will eventually turn around for you. Patience is the key here, remember that you will not win every bet you place.
