[toc]Dota 2 continues to provide us with headline news in the world of esports betting.

Following the EPICENTER news last week, The Summit 7 wrapped up this past weekend – read on for the results and see if your bets came in. In even bigger news, we’re still looking forward to The International and a prize pool that now tops $15 million.

Where to bet on esports


A combination of the utility and usability of the Betway homepage, plus a steadfast dedication to embracing esports betting fans as customers with targeted promotions and extras, means that this site remains a top pick for us.


Another top pick can be found at UK betting company SkyBet. SkyBet always has a staggering number of esports bets available, covering not just the most games and tournaments but the biggest selection of markets within each game as well.


Bet365 rounds out the podium of the best esports betting sites with a selection of bets that is second only to its fellow British bookies. The Stoke-based bookmaker is another fantastic choice for esports betting fans looking for in-depth selections.


Unsurprisingly, League of Legends markets are the also vast majority of Unikrn’s esports betting selection. The difference is, of course, that Unikrn is entirely esports-focused, unlike the three sites above.


Pinnacle has yet to reclaim the title of best esports betting site, but that doesn’t seem to stop fans of esports flocking to the original.

The week in esports events

Let’s take a look at the week just gone and look ahead to future bets on esports.

Dota 2

Once again, Dota 2 headlines the world of esports for the past week as The Summit 7 concluded just yesterday. Virtus.Pro took down the title, while on the other side of the Pacific Ocean in Shenzhen, China, Newbee won Galaxy Battles.


Depending on what time you read this, you may well still be able to fire a bet off at the World Championship Series, which is wrapping up in Sweden today. Next up for StarCraft fans is the Global StarCraft League in Seoul next month.


This week, London’s calling to CS:GO fans as eight teams will head to the UK for the Esports Championship Finals and a $660,000 prize pool. After that, we’re off to Cologne for ESL One.

League of Legends

League of Legends continues to be the dominant force in the world of esports betting by sheer number of matches and markets, with a gigantic list of ongoing Splits, Play-offs and other events continuing throughout June and early July.


Joining the StarCraft crews in Sweden is a group of elite Hearthstone players, competing for DreamHack Summer glory and a prize pool of $25,000. The Hearthstone Spring Championship follows in Shanghai next month.

Heroes of the Storm

Last but not least in Sweden, the Heroes of the Storm Mid-Season Brawl is wrapping up today. Like StarCraft, there may be time to get your bets in still!
