Betting money in eSport: games and tournaments

Some eSport games in pictures

There are not as many operators specifically dedicated to betting on electronic sports disciplines. This is obviously due to the fact that this discipline is in its infancy. There are no Arjel approved operators in France as there are in sports betting. Most of them have settled in the United States or England where eSports betting is a little more developed. A good command of English is therefore essential to get into eSports betting and get away with it.

Opt for the most popular games

Games such as STR or MOBA are a must in eSport because they bring together the largest number of players. As for matches, League of Legends, Starcraft and Dota matches are the most popular and offered by any good bookmaker. You can also bet on Counter Strike, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Valorant and Call of Duty. You have the possibility to bet real money on the victory of a team or on your own victory.

How to win?

To bet intelligently in esport, you have to understand a fundamental difference that separates it from traditional sports. Esport is a world in constant evolution where the past does not reflect the future. In traditional disciplines, it is possible to collect a large amount of data over time to refine predictions. One can also take the time to get to know the best athletes and the biggest teams. World rankings are relatively stable from one season to the next. None of this is the case in electronic sports! In esport mode, online betting and historical analysis don't mix. Everything evolves far too fast to be able to rely on old statistics. Many factors explain this volatility:

  • Evolution of the games. Unlike traditional sports, the "playing field" and rules change every year in esport, as new titles are released and updates are made.
  • Short careers. Pro Esport players are very young and their careers at the highest level do not exceed two years on average. This leads to a constant renewal of the rankings.
  • Fluctuating numbers. Changes of players within the pro teams are very frequent and are made continuously, the mercato never closes.
  • Unstable teams. The professional structures that host the players are also subject to strong jolts, in an ecosystem in perpetual evolution.

As a result, the esport bettor has to be on the lookout. The secret of success lies in reactivity, understanding the present and immediate trends. It's a good thing, the deeply online nature of esport competitions offers you a web window wide open on everything that happens there, 24 hours a day!
