eSports are an evolving medium. I can recall attending a Call of Duty tournament this last year and enjoying it much more than I ever would have thought. There are even tournaments for Hearthstone, which a few people may consider an all-ages game. Incredibly popular at the moment in the world of online gaming, and not showing signs of stopping is: Overwatch. Which means people want to make money off of it.
Tournaments for Overwatch already exist of course, but now one company is bringing you something even more fun to do with your favorite characters and players. Unikrn, one of the most popular eSports betting sites, is now offering free safe and legal betting on Overwatch matches. Because of the game’s popularity, Unikrn worked hard with regulators to get it approved as a bettable eSport. It is now one of the nine eSports on offer for betting at Unikrn. According to the site that’s “more markets than any other bookmaker on the planet.”
Unikrn will be offering odds on all the major Overwatch competitions including the Overwatch League. So keep on eye on their website to get an idea of who you should side with this year!
