RIOT Games is set to make its first local gaming convention appearance. The 2022 Electronic Sports Gaming Summit (ESGS) in Manila will be held at the SMX Convention Center from October 28th to 30th. The ESGS is the biggest annual gaming event in the Philippines. This event is the first time in two years that the ESGS will be held after the COVID-19 pandemic brought the event to a standstill.
Earlier this year, RIOT Games announced that they were opening a Philippine office as part of its expansion into the Asia market. After an overwhelming acceptance into the Asia e-sports gaming market, Riot Games is looking to expand its reach in Southeast Asia.
RIOT Games Top Titles

League of Legends is Riot’s most popular title in the Philippines, and multiple variations of the popular series exist. Mobile Legends Bang Bang is an online multiplayer game where teams can compete against other teams and advance to the next round to determine the better players.
Betting on E-Sports
Regarding betting on e-sports, online sportsbooks are the best solution for laying down wagers on teams, individuals, and competition results. Like sports betting lines, e-sports bettors can wager on money lines, spread odds, or totals for individual competitions. Bettors will also find futures and props for select events.
The sportsbooks we review have their own e-sports section and have popular titles like League of Legends, Dota 2, and Counterstrike in their sub-menu. You can find odds for competitions from around the world. Since online sportsbooks operate outside the Philippines, residents can legally place wagers on events like the Electronic Sports Gaming Summit.
