Before you start wagering and winning big at our trustworthy sportsbook, allow us to introduce some of the most widespread electronic sports games: Counterstrike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Defence of the Ancients 2 (DOTA 2), StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, and League of Legends (LoL). Get to grips with these, and you’ll be in a good position to expand and bet on other titles that are less frequently seen.
Each of these games have several serious tournaments dedicated to them, including the LoL World Championships (often simply called “Worlds”), the Dreamhack Masters for CS:GO, the DOTA 2 International and the Global StarCraft II League.
As a First Person Shooter (FPS) game, CS:GO is particularly simple to follow, making it a good launching pad for your first sports betting experience on esports. From here, you can move on to StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, which has a greater emphasis on strategy and demands more insight.
In LoL and DOTA 2, squads need to work together to reach specific locations and achieve other goals. They are examples of Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) titles, and require the same degree of teamwork that is needed in physical sports such as Ice Hockey and Volleyball.
