Esports Betting at VulkanBet

Esports is a form of sports competition made through video games. Contrary to popular belief, it is quite old, and it is possible to say that it goes back to the early ’70s. In those years, tournaments for arcade games were held at Stanford University in the United States, and hundreds of arcade booths were placed side by side to allow players to play at the same time. However, the emergence of electronic sports as a truly competitive sport occurred with the spread of multiplayer games. This happened in the early 2000s. Games such as Quake, Unreal and Warcraft can be considered the ancestors of modern esports games.

Nowadays, the number of competitive games with multiplayer features is much higher, and esports is also much more popular for the same reason. It is even considered to be included in the Olympic Games. While almost any game with competitive features can be used for electronic sports, some games are much more popular than others. In this regard, some of the most popular esports games as of 2020 are Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty, Rainbow Six: Siege, League of Legends, DOTA 2, Hearthstone, StarCraft II and Overwatch. 

With a few exceptions, most popular cyber games fall into two basic categories, RTS (Real-time Strategy) and FPS (First-person Shooter). Each game has its own global league and tournaments, which are supported by the developers of these games. Even today, there are games that are developed only for esports purposes, and EA’s Apex Legends and Ubisoft’s Hyper Scape can be cited as examples. Here are some interesting statistics:

  • League of Legends is considered the most-watched esports game in the world. The LCK Spring Split Finals in 2020 was watched live by 1.1 million people.
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive comes second in popularity. IEM Katowice tournament, which distributed 8 million dollars’ prize in 2020, was watched by 1 million people.
  • Analysts predict that in 2024 there will be 300 million people who regularly follow esports broadcasts. Considering the casual audience, it is estimated that this number will exceed 350 million people.
  • There are about 500 high-income professional gamers around the world, most of them in the United States. For example, the Fortnite player named “Ninja” earned more than $ 10 million in 2018 from Twitch streams alone.
  • The esports betting industry is estimated to reach $ 12.9 billion in 2020. To give you an idea, let’s point out that the size of the global sports betting industry is between 100 and 120 billion dollars. Esports accounts for more than 10% of all bets.

How to Bet on Esports at VulkanBet

Esports betting is, in many ways, similar to traditional sports betting. It is possible to bet on any outcome that can happen in a match or tournament. The most common example is betting on the match outcome when you try to predict which team will win. However, it is possible to bet on outcomes such as changes in points, the number of kills, who will get a higher score on which map, etc. Esports games have their own variables. For example:

  • In R6 Siege, you can bet on which team will get the first kill in a match.
  • In CS: GO, you can bet on whether a knife kill will occur.
  • In LoL, you can bet on which lane will lose its towers first.

In other words, it is possible to bet not only on a specific outcome but also on the specific features of the games. Different odds will be offered for each betting option. The VulkanBet difference arises at this point: we always offer our members the highest odds and ensure they reach their maximum earning potential.
