ESports is an organized sport type that uses competitive video games. There are players and teams in this sport too, but they don’t go “on the field” or play in a stadium. All they need is a chair and a computer: they play against each other in video games and try to win. Any video game that can be played competitively can be the subject of esports. Although FPS (first-person shooter) games are mostly preferred, RTS, DOTA, and even card games can be a part of this sport. By the end of 2021, the esports market is estimated to reach a size of approximately $1.28 billion.
In 2020 – 2021, esports betting attracted much more attention, and esports betting sites became more popular than ever. According to The United Kingdom Gambling Commission report, esports betting has increased by 2,922% from March 2019 to March 2020. Even between March 2020 and April 2020, there was an increase of close to 124%. Esports betting has become as popular as traditional sports betting, and more and more punters are interested in it. As of now, it is possible to say that the top 5 most popular esports to bet on are:
|League of Legends
||LoL World Championship
||CS:GO Major Championships
