What can I bet on?
With 40 million players in 2017, the number of tournaments continues to increase with the most significant being run by Blizzard : Battle.net World Championship Series and, most importantly, Dreamhack. The most popular form of betting consists of predicting which player or which team will win the event. The odds are somewhat high because this bet is risky.
Of course it’s possible to wager on a player’s victory of in a single match but the odds are much lower when the favourite plays. But the fact that tie games are not permitted helps to stabilize the odds.
Sometimes it is also possible to bet on the how far a player will go in the competition. This allows you to make things a bit more interesting if you follow a particular gamer.
