What's All the Hype? Why Mess with Betting?

With the esports industry booming and betting markets emerging, wagering on esports is becoming a popular hobby amongst gamers, gaming enthusiasts and esports fans around the world. The great thing about betting on esports is the simplicity. It’s super easy to get started! All it takes to have a shot at winning some money while watching a match is a few bucks and a bit of background knowledge about the game.

The primary reason to bet on esports is the entertainment value it provides. Watching a match is fun, but sweating it out with a stake in the game is even better. It’s also incredibly cheap entertainment! What was the bill last time you went out for dinner, drinks, and a movie? Yeah, it’s ridiculous. Compare that with placing a $5 bet on a best of 5 match. You’ll be even more engaged in the games and have an increased level of excitement for a full 3-5 hours! Not bad for $5. Oh, and you might even win some money!

After this, we get into the tips, tricks, and mistakes to avoid. Download the full esports betting guide for beginners here.
