From the very beginning, the Smite game was designed as the eSports discipline, so almost immediately after its release the large tournaments began. Bookmakers, for sure, picked up users interest in this online game, so today there are already specialized betting platforms where you can bet on Smite teams.
This game was released in 2015 by the Hi-Rez Studios developer in the genre of Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) with a third-person perspective. It is based on the world mythology, and battles take place in the conquest mode between two teams of 5 people each.
How and Where is it Possible to Make Bets on Smite
Despite the fact that the number of this game’s fans is already more than 10 million people, it is not a priority even for those bookmakers who specialize only in eSports. That is why the line for this discipline is limited to a few basic bets types:
- Bets on the outcome of the match;
- Bets on total over/under by the number of maps;
- Bets on handicap by maps;
- Bets on a specific player of the team.
You can bet both before the start of the fight and during the battle between teams, as well as in the fantasy mode. If you are going to bet during the game, be prepared for the fact that coefficients will vary depending on the predictability of the match events. The gems are used as the game currency in the fantasy mode; they can be previously bought for real money.
Bookmakers and the Upcoming Tournaments
Betting on this game is still in its infancy, so the opportunity to bet on Smite is better to look at the websites of large bookmakers, and especially those who specialize only in eSports, for example, Betway, Bet365, Pinnacle and 888sport.
Every year, Hi-Rez Studios holds the World Championships tournament with a limited prize pool of only $ 1,000,000. In addition to many seasonal tournaments and leagues, in 2020, the championship will be held in the US in the developer’s studio from November 4 to 11. ESL eSports organization also offers its own fantasy league, but only with internal game currency in the form of gems, which will be especially important for Smite players themselves, who also want to make money on the match prediction.
