We have come to the end of the 13-week trial of eSports Betting Tipster. eSports are professional computing gaming leagues on Starcraft, Counter Strike, League of Legends and Overwatch.
From the website:
With the rise of online gaming and the dawn of professional, competitive gaming it’s no surprise than an opportunity exists for betting fans to capitalise on these new markets.
Competitive odds and tips sent every morning mean that regardless of your interest in gaming, such as League of Legends, Overwatch, Dota 2 and CS:GO, you will enjoy this exciting opportunity to make additional money at the bookies.
The bets were received, usually the night before, and were simple bet on team x to win. Some of the matches were on the exchanges, with poor liquidity, so this is mainly a bookmaker-based service. However, some the best odds were on exotic, well for me anyway, bookies.
There is the usual Betting Gods tiered subscription, starting at £20 per month with discounts for longer subscriptions.
A 100 point bank is advised, so I started with a virtual £1000 bank as this meant I could use the Cash Master standard £10 per bet. The trial ended 26.27 points up (£262.70) to the advised odds, I suspect, but didn’t monitor, that you’d need to get on the bets quickly to get the advised odds, so, in reality, the real profit would be a tad less than this. £60 of subscriptions has to be deducted, but £202 is still a nice profit.
Whilst this fits my criteria for approved, I am going to sound a word of caution. This service uses an exotic market, and therefore it will be difficult to stay off the bookmaker’s radar. How much of an issue this is with the recommended bookmakers I do not know. I’d also be wary about lodging much money with offshore bookies, especially those outside of the EU.
