The rise in popularity in eSports betting has led online sportsbooks to include more titles and odds for upcoming gaming competitions.
BetOnline, one of the best online sportsbooks for Philippine bettors, has recently added more gaming titles for upcoming competitions for bettors. Popular game titles include Counterstrike, League of Legends, Rainbow Six, and DOTA 2.
The new titles recently added at BetOnline include Valorant and Rocket League.
VALORANT is a first-person shooter game that was developed by RIOT games and released in April of 2020.
In November 2020, RIOT games announced the VALORANT Champions Tour, a yearlong competition consisting of three tiers: Challengers, Masters, and Champions. The Champions Tour aims to crown the first-ever Global Champion.
Rocket League is a unique soccer game that uses cards instead of players. The game was developed by Psyonix and was first released on the CPU in 2015. Since its initial release, the game has developed a cult-like following and has been pushed to the global state with eSport competitions.
Rocket League is typically played with eight players on two different teams. Matches are usually five minutes long, with the victor awarded to the team with the most goals at the end of the allotted time.
Betting on eSports Online
Like regular sportsbook odds, eSports odds can be wagered on with game lines, futures, and props. The most common way to bet on eSports is with futures where you bet on a matchup or competition winner. With games that use points to score, over-under is also reasonably popular.
For most Philippine eSport bettors, you will likely wager on a team you’re familiar with, like the TNC Predator (DOTA 2) or team Sibol (Mobile Legends: Bang Bang). However, you will also find numerous international eSport teams that you can also wager on, including Team Liquid and Dallas Empire.
Online Sportsbook Deposit Options
To wager on the upcoming eSport competitions you will need to find an online sportsbook that offers reliable deposit and withdrawal options. BetOnline is our go-to choice for betting online from the Philippines due to the sheer amount of banking options the site offers.
Current cryptocurrency banking options for BetOnline include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Stellar, USD Coin, and Ripple. Traditional options include Credit/Debit cards, Person2Person, wire transfers, money orders, and cashier’s checks.
