WHAT IS ESPORTS BETTING?
Betting on eSports (electronic sports or Esports) is a form of betting on organised video games competitions. It’s not much different than other professional sporting events. In this case, bettors watch video gamers play against each other in a virtual environment. This new form of betting involves major tournaments or leagues where skilled gamers join the best teams and compete at the highest level.
HOW DOES ESPORTS BETTING WORK?
It works in the same way as all the other betting markets do: You place your bet on a selection and the gamers play to win! Betting on League of Legends is not very different from betting on football matches. You need to know about the teams that are playing, their tactics and form, and to have some luck to win out in the end.

We have been offering eSports to our customers for a long time and we are here to explain why this is not a niche market and where you can find eSports betting markets with BetInAsia.
