What is e-Sport?

e-Sports is short for “electronic sport” and is the collective term used to describe competitive gaming at a professional level. Any multiplayer game can become an e-Sport. Competitors from different teams face off in the same games that are popular with at-home gamers: Fortnite, League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Overwatch and Madden NFL, to name a few. There are two elements that play crucial roles in helping a game to succeed as an e-Sport; enjoyability and balance. The first is simply because if a game isn’t fun to play, then it’s not going to be enjoyable to watch and players will lose interest quickly. Every year there is a number of tournaments and events each year with hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes up for grabs, sometimes even entering the millions. e-Sport has grown to become a billion-dollar industry.

How do I know if I’m making a bet on e-Sport or traditional sports?

In the left sidebar where all sports are listed, e-Sports will have an “e” in front of it. Such as eTennis, eFootball and eRugby etc. In addition, there is a menu of its own for e-Sports that doesn’t have a real-life counterpart, such as war or fantasy games.

How do I make a bet on e-Sports?

Making a bet on e-Sports is no different from making a bet on traditional sports. The terminology might differ a bit depending on the e-Sport, such as “map handicap” instead of just “handicap” or “total maps” instead of “total score”.

Things such as cash out, push or draw, cancelled bets etc are the same for e-Sports as for traditional sports, and the same goes for possible errors while placing bets.
