Tips, tricks and tools for betting on Mobile Legends Bang Bang (MLBB)
The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang World Championships, commonly known as "M-Series" or Worlds. The annual event sees the best of the international community come together to claim the title. Unlike several other esports in the genre, the M-Series takes place at the start of the year and not at the end. The 2023 event will take place in Jakarta with $800,000 in prize money on the line.
Over the years, Indonesia and the Philippines have shared the titles, with Brazil being the most represented country outside of Asia. The game hasn’t really taken off in Western and Central Europe; however, sides from Turkey, Russia, and Ukraine have all competed at events over the years.
Match-winners: A match-winners market is the most straightforward MLBB bet. This market allows you to predict the winner of a game. The number of games in a series won't matter. You are just betting on the individual match.
Series score: Guessing the series score is what you're doing here. The most likely option is to place an over/under bet based on the bookmaker's number. An alternative bet is to bet on the number of matches in a series. A best-of-three series will have between two and three games. There will be between three and five games in a best-of-five series.
First Blood: Betting on which team will score the first kill. An exciting part of an MLBB game is when the players fight each other. Although it does not determine the game's outcome, it significantly impacts the early stages.
Tournament winner: A tournament or event winner. Your bet should be on the team that you think will win the finals. You can place a bet on this market during or before the tournament. Though odds will fluctuate as teams win or lose.
Most kills: A team bet placed on which side is likely to secure the most kills. Typically, this is the winning side. However, in longer matches, that isn’t always the case.
Match Handicap: Handicap betting, also referred to as the 'spread' in traditional sports. Involves giving one selection a virtual deficit (a handicap) to overcome at the start of an event. If your chosen selection score is more significant than its opponents after the handicap has been applied, your chosen selection is deemed the winner.
Mobile Free-to-play: Both aspects bring in a larger crowd, meaning more opportunities for Mobile League to blossom. Plus, with the game being on mobile, it removed almost all the barriers to enter the game that players might have.
Variety of markets: MOBA titles are some of esports' most diverse betting markets. From match winners to what Drake will spawn first, MLBB is similar to other popular titles in that there are so many opportunities to bet on the smallest of battles. We’ve included a number of them above, but there are many more depending on the esports book you place with.
Mid-series shifts: One thing MOBA titles like MLBB are great at is shifting the outcomes of a series in a moment. With MLBB being such a short duration per game, it means longer series can swing from one team to another multiple times. Generally, MLBB plays in a Bo5 format, so there’s a lot of room for change.
A growing global interest: While it’s very accurate that the game is more popular in Asia. The game is clearly on the rise in the West. While it has picked up considerably in recent years, it still has a long way to go, specifically in Western Europe, where interest seems very limited. How Wild Rift (LoL mobile) has impacted the game in these regions isn’t known.
Play the game - The importance of this cannot be overstated. Placing bets requires an understanding of the context of the game. With the game being F2P and on mobile it couldn’t be easier to get started.
Bet without bias - You will learn about the game and the esports scene as you play. It is not always the best choice to pick the team or player you like. Betting on a team because you support it isn't a good idea, even if you know more about them as a result. Don't let your heart guide your betting.
Start small, play smart - The best tip of all is to start small and play smart. Don’t go big on one "sure thing"; look at smaller options and work from there once you’ve learned the scene and better understand it. Then you can place more significant stakes.
It’s undeniable that mobile gaming and mobile esports are not showing signs of slowing down. The question is if MLBB is the game to take the genre by storm or if it will just be a footnote. Again, the game has already shown its popularity, not just in Asia. However, Wild Rift is growing in popularity in the West, an area in which Riot Games already has a much more significant presence.
