What is esport?
Esports is short for electronic sports and refers mostly to competitive video gaming. While nearly one billion people around the world play video games, a smaller segment of that video gamer demographic are professional gamers.
You may not realize this if you are not deep into the world of gaming, but this professional gaming scene is huge and attracts spectators by the millions. Some of the biggest video game contests are held at massively attended tournaments and competitions. Live audiences flock to these competitions and millions of other fans, unable to watch in person, stream these competitions on YouTube and Twitch.tv. Even big TV networks like ESPN have begun airing these esports contests and championships.
What is esport betting?
If you are a big fan of esports, or are just getting into the increasingly popular sports type, you might want to consider esports betting. Betting on esports through a site like Spin Sports allows you to put your understanding of each video game and team to work as you try to win money based on predicted plays, props, and match wins.
Like betting on traditional sports such as boxing, MMA, football, and golf, esports betting uses real money to place wagers on agreed-upon odds. Win the bet and you get paid. The betting process is that simple if you guess the winning move, play, or outcome. Also, unlike traditional betting, wagering on Spin Sports esports is a live betting situation where you can bet during the action.
