Bet on Esports
When you bet on Esports you are leveraging one of the fastest growing betting sectors on the planet. You are joining millions of people around the world who follow electronic sports with the same enthusiasm as they do Premier League football, Grand Slam tennis, Super Rugby and NBA basketball.
It is a multibillion-dollar entertainment industry that has taken the world by storm – and the leading South African betting operators online offer competitive odds on all the best local and international Esports events. When you bet on Esports, you are not betting on ‘small fry’. Major annual events like BlizzCon attract more than 45,000 gamers, all of whom are intent on grabbing the Overwatch, StarCraft II and World of Warcraft tournament titles!
What is Esports?
Esports is the next generation of competitive sports. It consists of live gaming encounters between different players, teams and leagues. Events are centred around individual video games – League of Legends (LOL), Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Overwatch, Call of Duty, Dota 2 and Hearthstone – to name but a few.
On any given weekend in any given month, there is a topflight Esports event unfolding somewhere in the world. The action is streamed live or featured on mainstream TV and you can bet on Esports – pre-match and in-play – directly on your PC or digital device.
Anybody and everybody can bet on Esports and the proverbial pots of gold that are the LOL World Championship, EVO Championship Series, FIFA eWorld Cup, BlizzCon, DreamHack and the Olympics of Esports; the International Esports Federation World Championship!
