Betsson is one of the traditional bookmakers who have turned the focus to eSports betting, one of the fastest-growing markets in the online gambling industry.
According to a 2020 report by Eilers & Krejcik, over 6.5 million gamblers were wagering on eSports matches. This number has seen a further increase since eSports have grown exponentially in 2021.
Considering how vast and potent the eSports betting industry is, BML Group Ltd, the betting site's operator, is keen on dominating the eSports betting scene, just like they do in traditional sports betting. The four-pillar strategy offers players plenty of betting options, and convenience.
Betsson is not the ordinary eSports bookie that only covers the elite eSports tournaments alone; it covers all the competitive eSports games worldwide. Be it a low-tier qualifiers Dota 2 battle or the LoL World Championships, Betsson has got bettors covered. At the moment, some of the competitions that players can bet on include Dota 2: DOTA PRO CIRCUIT DIVISION 1, Dota 2: DOTA PRO CIRCUIT DIVISION 2, CS: GO: IEM WINTER, and FIFA eSports Battle.
Besides the comprehensive coverage of eSports tournaments and competitions, Betsson goes further by offering a wide variety of markets to choose from. For sports simulation eSports, for example, FIFA, the betting markets are just the same as traditional soccer betting. However, for first-person shooter (FPS) games, most eSports betting sites just have the basic markets. But Betsson has plenty of markets.
In CS: GO, for example, players can bet on match-up winner, correct score, draw no bet, pistol round winner 1, pistol round winner 2, handicaps, total rounds played on a map, overtime on a map, rounds won on a map (handicap), maps played in a series, map-specific winners, and so on.
Odds are a key factor when choosing a good betting site. Players are always on the hunt for the highest odds; Betsson clearly understands this. To ensure it is on top of the game, Betsson offers some of the highest odds on the market in all the three odds formats. For example, when other eSport betting sites have an eSports team's winning odds at 1.66, Betsson will have the odds set at 1.70, or even higher.
Last, Betsson has streamlined its banking infrastructure and expanded partnerships with online payment methods to facilitate fast and deposits. It is not the usual eSports betting site that delays deposits up to hours after the match a bettor wanted to wager on has ended.
What's more? Betsson expedites withdrawals as long as players have verified their accounts. Furthermore, the bookmaker has partnered with all the popular online payment systems, from eWallets to debit and credit cards and more.
Indeed, Betsson has a clear plan to assert itself in the list of the best eSports betting sites. Besides the comprehensive eSports coverage, variety of betting markets, high odds, and fast deposits, Betsson has one of the best eSports bonuses around. What's more? The betting site offers an xceptional customer experience.
