eSports came a long way from their humble beginnings and have the potential of turning into a huge betting market. Hundreds of millions of dollars are awarded to the best players of popular video games, with even more money being ventured by punters. Betway was one of the first bookmakers to introduce an eSports betting category, while adding new titles on the list of video games that members can bet on.
Giving Something Back to the Community
On Thursday June 23, the Betway eSports Fight Night returns with the highly anticipated ‘Best of Three’ DOTA challenge. This competition will pit two of the best teams in the world against each other, as Alliance and Na’Vi will compete for a prize worth €5000. The cash won’t make much of a difference for the winners, as they already won significant amounts but will mean a great deal for a charity.
The winner will choose the aid organization that will benefit from this donation while claiming bragging rights. Videogame players in general and DOTA 2 fans in particular are waiting to watch the match and the odds offered by the bookmaker are tempting. The last Betway’s Fight Night edition was won by Sweden’s Fnatic who defeated Astralis from Denmark in a Counter Strike Global Offensive match.
Betway Fight Night Specials on DOTA 2
Na’Vi is credited with the first chance to win the competition and the odds stand at 1.60, while Alliance is the underdog and priced at 2.20. DOTA 2 games are very competitive especially at this high level, with one mistake being enough to change the outcome of the match.
That is why the most popular and best paying eSports competitions revolve around MOBA games. DOTA 2 sits at the top of the list, followed at a distance by League of Legends and Heroes of the Storm, both covered by Betway.
