BETTING eSports is the future of online betting 3 years ago Iwo Bulski Post Views: 586 For many people, the idea of gambling on eSports might seem a little crazy. However, as eSports increase in popularity, it has naturally gained the attention of the sports betting crowd! Download the bet365 app, for example, and you might notice some action on eSoccer or CSGO right on the homepage, not something you would have expected to see even a few years ago! The times are changing, and you should expect that to continue long into the future if you are on the bet365 app. This is because bet365 has started to work with Sports Information Services (SIS) to help transform their eSports betting platform, improving your betting options and coverage of the sector. With the rapid growth of the sector, huge competition pay-outs and big sponsorship deals, the stigma around eSports and video games has been all but consigned to the history books. On top of this, with almost all of the normal sports we watch (outside of the German Bundesliga) being written off due to COVID-19, it’s time to start thinking outside the box and have a flutter on something more virtual instead! A new era for eSports betting With more and more people tuning in to watch eSports than ever before, the industry is experiencing a real boom. People who might have once scoffed at the concept are now more interested than ever before. Streamers like Ninja and Dr Disrespect have reached celebrity status garnering hundreds of thousands of views across streaming and content platforms. Groups like Team Liquid are dominating competitions with net winnings in excess of $32,000,000 and capturing the minds of young, aspirational players dreaming of making it big in their chosen games. The variety of eSports games is also a worth consideration, those sports fans accustomed to the horses, dogs, football etc. can now explore anything from deeply tactical games such as Dota or League of Legends to something far more fast paced and action-packed like Call of Duty or Rainbow 6 Siege. Of course, there are still the more direct parallels such as eSoccer games! Interestingly, the SIS partnership means that bet365 users will soon be able to bet on live head-to-head competitions. This means that you could be taking part in bets on major eSports platforms like the SIS Blitz League. If you miss the excitement of watching a live match with money on the line, then you’ll find some great bets on games over on the Blitz League! With the entertainment-pool starting to look a little dry after 2 months of lockdown, now is the perfect time to start familiarising yourself with something new. Head over to Youtube or Twitch, pick a game and start searching, you’ll find thousands of competition replays and post-game tactical analysis videos to get you started. You might be surprised at how in-depth eSports can be and once you get your head around this, maybe you can find your edge!
