Esports betting is the activity of predicting results on professional Esports matches by placing a wager on the match outcome.
The term ‘Esports’ refers to ‘electronic sports’ and usually consists of a game played over a console or computer by individuals, or a team of players, against other individuals or teams either over the internet or a local area network (LAN).
Esports is experiencing rapid growth and is quickly becoming some of the most popular sports to bet on. It’s very similar to betting on regular sports matches and or tournaments, the difference being it involves games that are played online by professional gamers. These games are viewed by spectators on big screens in stadiums or online via a live stream.
Match odds work the same way as with traditional sports. Skrilla acts as the bookmaker and calculates odds on the betting markets and users can wager cash on the betting markets.
We offer betting markets on CS:GO (Counter Strike), League of Legends, Dota2, COD (Call of Duty), Fortnite, PUBG, Starcraft, Rainbow6, Hearthstone and Rocket League! You can place simple head to head bets, such as FazeClan to beat Cloud9 or you can place exotic bets, such as, who will get the most kills or first kill, or how many rounds Natus Vincere will win.
In the most basic form, betting odds are a representation of the underlying chance that an event will occur - the probability. In any event, every outcome has a chance of taking place. Odds are simply an interpretation of these chances.
On Skrilla, each betting market is attributed an odd. Skrilla manages and creates the betting odds for each betting market.
On the Skrilla platform odds are represented in decimals. For example a 50/50 bet would be represented as 2.00.
The closer the odds are to 1.00 indicates there is a strong chance this event will occur. These is called short odds. The further the odds are away from 1.00 indicates the event has a less likely chance of occuring. These are called long odds.
The longer the odds, the bigger potential payout. The shorter the odds, the smaller the payout.
When you place a eSports bet, you stake an amount of money on a particular betting market. The stake amount is multiplied by the odd of that market, and this create the potential payout amount.
For example if the odds for Mousesports to beat BIG are a 1.70. If you stake $10 on mousesports to win, your potential payout would be $17.00 = $1.70 (odds) x $10.00 (stake).
