DOTA 2 Bets
DOTA 2 is an online game that has recently become popular with the eSports betting. The game is a derivative of the original Warcraft 3, although follows a completely different format. The games are hosted internationally, as the competitors are online and do not have to be in the same place same time. DOTA 2 bets can be placed via a growing number of online sites, many of which host a number of different kinds of eSports.
Finding A Site
Finding a site which hosts DOTA 2 bets is a little bit more difficult than finding an online site that hosts betting on regular sport. ESports betting is still a relatively new concept, and it is not supported by as many sites as yet as games such as rugby or even horse racing. That being said, many of the large online betting sites have taken up the concept of eSports, and host DOTA 2 bets for various tournaments annually. To find one of these sites, your average web browser and search engine can be used in conjunction with a suitable device such as a laptop or even a mobile device such as a smart phone.
Mobile DOTA 2 bets are becoming even more popular, as they can be placed from wherever the punter is as long as they have an Internet connection. Some sites are designed especially for mobile operating systems and run better on a mobile device than on a laptop. Placing DOTA 2 bets via a mobile device allows the punter to keep an eye on the game in real time as many of the games which offer DOTA2 bets also a host live streaming of the game so that you can watch the actual game progress.
Real And In Game Currencies
One of the most interesting things about esports betting, is that one can wager not only with real life currency, but also with in game items as well as in game money. Many people who place DOTA 2 bets play themselves, and not only wish to accrue real currency but also items or in game money which can help them further their own personal games. In game money or items are often offered by online sites to punters from countries where online betting is not yet legal. Punters from New Zealand, however, are legally allowed to bet in real currency as well as anything in game.
Strategies and Tips
As with any game, DOTA 2 bets are best placed by someone who has knowledge of how the game works, and of how the betting system works. DOTA 2 is a relatively complex game, which doesn’t follow the pattern that most punters would be used to when placing bets on sports matches.
The first and most important thing is to understand the game of DOTA 2. To place a successful bet it’s always a good idea to play the game yourself, so that you know the intricacies and every single one of the heroes and their strengths and weaknesses. Take into account the human factor when placing a wager on a match, as humans are not infallible and each match relies on the player’s mental status.
Knowing your teams is also a good way to make sure that your wager is successful. ESports betting sites often don’t differentiate between professionals and amateurs when it comes to leagues and teams, so knowing which one has the likely advantage over the other could have a definite outcome on your wager. As with any sports wagering, placing DOTA2 bets is best done with a solid knowledge of the game itself, the players and how the online betting system works.
