Pinnacle Sports is one of the world’s largest sportsbooks and was founded back in 1998. They are most known for taking huge bets on their regular sports but when Global Starcraft League started in 2010 they began to offer odds on eSport matches!

It is worth to mention that Pinnacle was the first major betting site that started to offer betting on eSports. So far they have offered odds on almost all the esports but most of the markets have targeted Starcraft2, Dota 2, League of Legends, Counter-Strike. Pinnacle usually offers the most attractive odds (with the lowest bookmaker margins) compared to the other bookies.

eSportbettings review of Pinnacle

Bonuses and Odds

Pinnacle Sports does not put a lot of effort and money into advertising and does not offer any deposit bonuses. This may seem unimpressive compared to the other bookmakers but if you bet a lot you will save/win a lot more at Pinnacle since they give you much better odds than their competitors. At the moment (February 2018), Pinnacle Sports offer odds with a 50% lower margin compared to the other bookies. In addition to this Pinnacle Sports also accepts huge bet-sizes which makes this the bookmaker to be registered with, if you are a winning player.

Pinnacle has a great eSports Coverage

In addition to the great odds Pinnacle offers a wide selection of eSport markets. The markets include the big titles like CS:GO and Dota but also the new upcoming games like Fortnite, PUBG and King of Glory. Event coverage differs a bit between the games but on the major titles there are a lot of events, big and small. On the less popular games Pinnacle only covers the major events.

Other forms of gambling at Pinnacle Sports

Just like other bookmakers, Pinnacle Sports have a wide range of other sports that they offer odds on, all from Soccer to Snooker. In addition to the sportsbook they also have a casino and a live casino.
