ESports Starting To Become Prominent In The Online Betting Game
August 18, 2017
Over the last few years, the concept of ‘eSports’ has really gained a lot of momentum online. So much so that it now features prominently on a lot of bookmaker websites, as well as betting exchanges such as Matchbook Exchange.
eSports, otherwise know as electronic sports, covers video games that are played alone or in teams. This is usually in the form of tournaments or leagues. When betting on eSports, it works exactly the same as betting on any normal sports. You can bet on a person or a team to win and will be paid out as a winner if they do. Some examples of eSports that are listed on bookmaker sites include CSGO, Hearthstone, League of Legends and DOTA 2.
The viewing figures for eSports events have been growing year on year. In some cases, millions of people tune in for the top matches and it is starting to be picked up by TV channels, as well as online video streaming sites. In many cases, the events are available to watch for free, which makes it more readily available.
It’s not just people watching behind a screen either, as in recent years some eSports events have drawn in massive crowds in live arenas and stadiums, which properly highlights how popular the sport now is. There are some people that do not understand why others would watch or bet on eSports, but they are quickly becoming the minority.
Some of the games can be difficult to understand, so watching others play them can help give you a better understanding. Of course, if you were to watch enough, it would give you a better idea of who is likely to win each time, making it more likely that you will back a winning selection.
From a matched betting perspective, eSports is also growing rapidly. For example, the betting site Goatbet is dedicated to eSports and occasionally lists special promotions that can be turned into real cash when matched betting. There are also plenty of other offers on bookmaker sites that eSports markets can be used for. If the odds are a close match between the bookmaker and the exchange, betting on eSports markets will certainly be beneficial for you.
Any offers that are available will always be listed on MatchedBets.com, each with their own step by step offer guide to make sure you add to your ongoing profits.
