It's the right time for eSports betting

Tue, 21 Apr 2020 10:56
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all traditional sport is suspended, and no one knows when it will resume. While the optimists still hope that season will be finished at least by the end of July, many experts claim that both this and the next seasons are lost, as massive gatherings will still be forbidden until at least fall of 2021. In the meantime, eSports betting is on the rise.

Breaking new grounds

If you had no idea that esports betting is a thing, don't be embarrassed. The gaming industry always had a weird relationship with gambling for apparent reasons. Most of the crowd watching these competitions are underage, but companies are finding ways to adapt. Online betting on esports became a thing in the USA in November 2019 when fans were allowed to vote for a single match - the one that would decide the League of Legends champion of the world. As you can imagine, the biggest headache for betting fans is that esports players are still not household names. While most of the random people on the streets could tell you names of at least ten football or basketball players, almost none of them could name one of the FIFA Soccer or HearthStone champions. Luckily, there are a few sites that are building databases of players and their performances, which might help you learn the ropes about who is who. So instead of spending time browsing the best porn sites, many people are now learning about esports stars.


Sweet, sweet fantasy babe

Something else to try is fantasy contests. For example, you can enter daily competitions where you build your team of professional gamers and gain rank based on their performance. Lots of these competitions are based on the still highly-popular League of Legends, but this is quickly expanding to other games like Counter-Strike Global Offensive or DotA 2. There is already enough interest that winning the first place might get you $100,000 or more, and you can enter more than a couple of teams for a higher chance of winning. The prize pool is constantly rising, and it will soon reach millions. If you are into more traditional sports, there are fantasy competitions based on NASCAR and Madden NFL games. Still, if you are not a gamer, you will have to learn the ropes. Like some great porn games, esports betting is the future, and even when sports resume, it will still be here, and it will keep growing. Now that we are all staying at home, this might be the perfect opportunity to learn more about it. Those who are open about this will benefit, as esports gaming continues to expand, and it's already far ahead of some traditional sports league. Whatever happens, it will be interesting to keep an eye on things and see what will happen in the next couple of months or even in the foreseeable future. Maybe the day, when some 17-year-old kid is more popular than LeBron James, is not that far.
