WHY DO FANS PREFER BETTING ON CSGO MORE THAN OTHER GAMES?

  • Share:

Do you love playing or watching CS: GO games? There’s another way you can enjoy this gameplay- by reaping profits from betting on it. In the past few years, bettors have taken to betting on esports. Of the most popular esports, CSGO betting seems to be at the forefront. More and more people are putting their money on this game, which begs the question; why is CS: GO betting so popular? This guide takes you through why this betting has taken hold at a faster pace than in other games. Let’s find out:

The Exciting Gameplay

When betting on any e-sport, you will find yourself watching the gameplay at some point. So, it helps if the gameplay is exciting. Is this the case with CS: GO? A resounding yes! CS: GO (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive) is a tactical shooter game that follows players defusing or detonating a bomb. This classic version is the most common, though some players also enjoy the Arms Race and Hostage modes. Whichever version you watch, you will enjoy the professional graphics and settings. Of course, this is a major point in favor of betting on the game.

A Thriving Community

If you are new to betting on e-sports, you may not understand why this would be a good thing. After all, what does it matter if a game has three or three million fans? It matters a lot. Why? The odds! The more a game garners fans, the more people will bet on the game. Because setting odds comes down to statistics and subjectivity, the odds will vary from time to time. So, bettors can easily find the most competitive odds and bet on the highest profit margins. Any game with a thriving and active online community is always a good bet. Also, you can get good tips and tricks on CS: GO betting from these online communities. 

A Variety of Bets

This point also ties in with the thriving community. Bookies cannot afford to offer the same old boring bets they would provide for other games. First, this would rob them of fans. Secondly, it would reduce their chances of making good money from the bets. So, they keep introducing new bets to place on the games. The most common bets presently are:

  • Match Winner Bets: Do you have a clue who can win the match? This type of bet is easy to hack, and even a beginner can try their luck on this.
  • Outright Tournament Winner Bets: How about backing a team to win the entire tournament? This decision carries a lot of weight, but the money is also good if you're right!
  • Handicap Bets: These bets allow you to increase your profit margins by getting better odds. It takes a while to understand how these pay out, but you will be set to make some good cash once you do.
  • Over and Under Bets: Rather than choosing which team will win, how about you decide the number of rounds the teams will play? These bets are easy to understand, and their payouts can be handsome.
  • Map Winner Bets: With the different maps on the game, you can pick the one you think a team can win and back it with a wager.

Are these the only bets available on CS: GO? Hardly- and that’s the beauty of this game. You keep finding more ways to maximize your earnings by exploiting different wagers. 

Availability on Betting Sites

Not all e-sports are available on betting sites. But CS: GO is one of the few that are almost always available on betting sites. Again, this ties to the thriving online community that the betting sites must satisfy. So, you can always find a bookie willing to take your money. But that’s not even the best part. Seeing as you have a wealth of options, you can choose a site that meets your needs rather than going with what’s available. Other games may not afford you this luxury.

Recurring Tournaments

Additionally, CS: GO features a ton of tournaments in small and regional leagues. So, you are always sure that you have a chance to wager on a big game. All you need is to check out the game calendar and get your ducks in a row.

Winning in CS: GO is also easy if you research players and teams before placing wagers. All the best!
