Recently a new type of eSport betting has emerged that allows most US customers to bet. There are new companies that hosts eSports fantasy leagues, not unlike poker tournaments. You can join a freeroll, playmoney or real money league where you as a manager (on a limited budget), pick eSport players to your team for a specific predefined set of matches and gather points depending on the outcome of real eSport matches.
When a fantasy league is finished, the players with the most amount of points are rewarded with prizes in relation to the prizepool. There can be different payout structures which you can read more about on the specific company homepage.
Read more about the different companies that offers eSports fantasy betting on games like League of Legends, Dota and Counter-Strike Global Offensive below. Be sure to sign up with the bonus codes below to receive a deposit bonus.
DraftKings is the new bright star in the American gambling industry. Founded in 2012, they have successfully taken a large share of the American real-money fantasy-sport betting market. In the beginning they focused mostly on the popular American sports like Football, Ice-Hockey, Basketball, Baseball and Golf. Recently they have also taken up the Soccer, Nascar and MMA markets.
In 2015 they hosted their first fantasy tournament for eSports, or more accurate League of Legends. Hopefully we will see several other eSports (Dota 2, Hearthstone, Call of Duty etc.) making their way into the DraftKing lobby. At the moment DraftKings only accept players from UK, USA and Canada.
