Technical Recommendations on Esports Betting in 2021

All about esports

Electronic games, or esports, is a term that refers to professional video games. So, technically, we are all about people competing against each other in video games. Of course, this is nothing new; it is been going on in homes since the first home computers and game consoles were released. There was a time when sitting in front of the same machine was the only way to play computer games against real-life opponents. However, we can now play games on the internet as well. It means we will play against people from all over the world from the comfort of our own homes.

According to estimates, over one billion people participate in video gaming. It is an incredible figure that demonstrates how famous video games have been. Of course, not all of these games compete against other players; some choose to play alone, but there's no denying that competing against real-life competitors is favored by many.

Esports betting for beginners

Esports betting can be done in a variety of ways. The most common choices are listed below.

  • Betting for real money
  • Betting on skins
  • Fantasy betting
  • Social betting
  • Betting on a challenge

Real money betting

It is the most similar form of esports betting to standard sports betting, and it functions similarly to betting on football games, boxing matches, or golf tournaments. We wager real money at agreed-upon odds, and if our predictions are right, we are paid out. We will bet money on various results, including individual match winners and overall tournament winners.

Skin betting

Among esports fans, skin betting, also known as item betting, is extremely common. Digital currency and other objects that can be exchanged between players are common in modern video games, and this function is often searched after by dedicated gamers. As a result, several auctions and trading platforms exist where players can purchase, sell, and trade goods and currencies for various popular video games.

Social betting

In the esports world, social betting is very popular, where friends or internet contacts make casual bets on the results of events. These bets may be for real money, but most of the time they are for skins. The terms are agreed upon by all sides, and then the transaction is completed.

We should not recommend getting interested in this betting because betting with real-world friends is always a better idea because it can lead to petty fights and falling out. And betting with people you meet online is risky because you never know whether you will get paid.

Fantasy betting

It is not betting, and it is similar to daily fantasy sports for professional sports, except we use esports players to create our teams.

Challenge betting

It is also known as head-to-head betting, and it is where players compete for real money, products, and skins. Many players make bets between themselves and only pay up after the game is over. Some websites organize things a bit more formally, with players and teams paying registration fees to enter a contest, with the winner receiving a prize from the proceeds of said fees.
