Betspawn is one of the newest betting sites with a sole eSport focus. Started by Swedes in 2016 they have become a strong competitor in terms of market coverage. They cover almost all the events for large titles (CS:GO being the biggest) as well as the upcoming and smaller titles like Vain Glory, Smite and World of Tanks.

The 1337 eSport welcome bonusBetspawn offers all new customers a welcome bonus of €133.7 (or 1337 kr if that would be your currency). The bonus amount describes Betspawns commitment to eSports and their strong coverage. Be sure to read the full terms and conditions at their site before signing up so you know what requirements you have to reach to clear the elite bonus!
The odds marginsBetspawn is positioned in the higher segment when it comes to margins or rake. They charge around 8% on their markets which means that if you bet $100 they usually pay out around $92. This is not great but is close to the industry standard. It's worth to mention that they offer a lot of markets on the smaller titles where there might not be as many bettors (which makes it more probable that the odds are miss priced).
Skin Betting - CS:GO & Dota 2Bet spawn offers the unique functionality to deposit money with your skins. By converting your skins to money (via SkinPay) you can cash in on your in-game items. As of 2018-02-14, the items accepted are Counter-Strike and Dota 2 skins. Process-wise, you select the skin you want to deposit / sell / bet and a bot will make you an offer which you can accept or deny.
Betspawn is a new company, is it legit?Yes, Betspawn is a legit company! However it is worth to take their age into consideration when evaluating the security of the site since a younger bookmaker often is a bit less secure, business-wise, compared to the largest bookmakers like Bet 365 etc.
Casino gamesUnfortnately Betspawn does not offer markets on the regular sports yet (this will probably be available in the near future) but they have an excellent casino section where you can play the classic games like starburst etc.
eSports live bettingThe live-betting markets at Betspawn are excellent. Their live-betting department are not only covering the big titles but also small titles like Mortal Kombat. It is also impressive that the margins charged for the live-betting are in line with their normal levels at 8% which isn't that usual for betting sites. Normally betting companies charges higher margins on live-betting.
Mobile-friendlyThe user experience at Betspawns website is excellent both for desktop and mobile-devices. The design is great and the over all experience feels great in terms of the UX / UI.
Supported languagesBetspawns site is available in a couple of languages which might increase over time. The languages supported so far is summarized in the list below:
Support-departmentAs with most new bookmakers the support department does not have the same resources as the largest betting sites. However they are agile and not as process-driven as the old bookmakers. Our experience with Betspawn has met our expectations and been pleasurable. You can reach them easily via mail or live-chat.
