What is Esports Betting?
Esports betting is a form of betting that includes betting on one of several video games that are considered as Esports. Currently, all competitive video-games with tournaments that include prize pools are considered as Esports games. Some of the most popular games are League of Legends, Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, FIFA, Hearthstone, and so on. In other words, a bet placed on any of those games is considered as Esports bet.
Why Bet on Esports?
Why do people usually place bets? Some of them want to earn money and some of them just want to have fun. There are several reasons to bet on this type of sport.
I personally started betting to make games I follow more intense. Over time, I began to understand those games and I was usually able to predict the final outcome before the game starts. Although I now work in the industry, back then, the only way to cash out my Esports knowledge was through betting, which I eventually did. So, if you are a fan of this sport and know enough to predict the result, you should definitely consider Esports betting as a new hobby. However, be responsible and never bet more than you can afford to lose. This hobby can be both profitable and dangerous, in the end, it all depends on you.
Where to Bet on Esports?
Although the majority of Bookmakers nowadays have Esports in their offer, it is not that simple. You can just select a random bookmaker and start betting there. Well, you can but you shouldn’t. There are a few things you should look for before deciding which Bookmaker is the best for you and why.
You need to know which bookmaker accepts players from your country, which games do they offer and which payment methods are available. It can be a painful process if done manually. Luckily, we automatised this process for you. Just head over to UpYourGame homepage and select your country, choose your games and pick payment methods you personally prefer.
