1XBet Esports Review: Esports is a focus for them, very good odds, lots of markets

1xBet background

Established in 2011, 1xBet has an interesting approach to the bookmaking business.  They offer a new customer bonus, highly competitive odds and offer accounts in nearly every imaginable national currency.  They in particular recognized the importance of esports with their sponsorship of esports organizations HellRaisers and Cascade Pro Gaming.  They also sponsor professional football clubs and the Italian Serie A football league.

The 1xBet desktop betting platform experience

To get to all the esports betting events quickly, simply click on ‘Sports’.  On the next page, the sports navigation at left will appear, from there you can click on ‘Esports’ to navigate to all events or find your event of interest below the Esports header.  Note that from this opened esports index, you can easily find the ‘Winner’ bets for wagers on the eventual champion.  

From the 1xBet homepage, don’t get confused by the Esports icons under the ‘Live Betting’ or ‘Sportsbook’ section headers.  These icons are not meant for your immediate click.  Simply hover over the large icons to spawn a list of the available events.  Then simply scroll the list.  If scrolling is not easy for your particular device setup, simply access esports events through the method listed first above.

Overall, the site is nicely organised.  However it is not quite as intuitive at first click compared to our other top sites.  Also, the heavy use of the hover effect likely slows the site down a bit.  It can feel a bit sluggish as we move around between major pages that have lots of things to load.  Pages that simply include odds for a particular event load much faster.  These small drawbacks account for the slightly lower grade on the Desktop Betting Interface.

The 1xBet mobile esports betting platform experience

From your mobile, 1xBet will provide a more intuitive experience that is even faster than the desktop experience.  Given that the hover mechanism is not available for touch devices and everything is accessed via a tap gesture, the mobile site works exactly as you imagine it should and you will have access to the exact same selection of events.  Simply tap the 3-line mobile button and tap ‘Sports’.  

From the sports page, swipe the sports icons from right to left until you find the game controller that represents esports and tap it once.  All the ‘Top Events’ will load to your device screen.  Tap the ‘Leagues’ tab to see a full list of available leagues for betting including long-term ‘Winner’ bets.  You can filter the betting markets out by tapping the settings wheel icon.

1xBet esports game coverage

1xBet esports coverage includes League of Legends (LoL), CS:GO (Counter-Strike), King of Glory (KOG), Artifact, FIFA, DOTA 2, Overwatch, Rainbow Six (R6), Rocket League, StarCraft (SC 2 and others), Call of Duty, Street Fighter V and Team Fortress.  This is one of the most comprehensive lists of games that we found in our review of betting sites with regard to esports.  We also found that CS:GO, LoL, DOTA 2 had multiple events available for betting.

The bottom line: should you sign up with 1xBet for esports?

With 1xBet you get solid odds on a true breadth of esports events and betting markets.  If you like this combination of attributes, plus accounts in almost any available currency and are comfortable with a desktop interface that works a bit differently than most betting sites, 1xBet is a tremendous esports betting option.

1xBet esports betting markets

Within the games and events that they cover, 1xBet does an excellent job of offering a large array of betting markets.  When a game tends to have a higher profile, you might find several available markets, including Total Maps Over/Under, Total Maps Odd/Even as well as several markets with regard to whether or not a particular team might win a given Map or any Maps at all within a given match.  They even offer Yes and No betting on the Correct Score.  1xBet also offers Handicap betting for most events.  They also offer outright winner bets, usually just called ‘Winner’.

1xBet banking methods and account currencies:

1xBet literally offers accounts in essentially every world currency - seriously, nearly every currency.  To complement this, they also offer perhaps the longest list of available banking methods.  The bottom line is that they make it super easy for you to play and bank in your own currency.  This includes acceptance of payment in several cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum and others.
