Betting on E-sports – How does it work?
Betting on E-sports has been quite difficult under a couple of years ago. Now there are specific betting companies that specialize in only doing betting in e-sports. One could argue that the risk of match-fixing (meaning that any external part tries to influence the game to be able to win a big on a bet). This is, of course, a risk but in general, match-fixing is not big in e-sports. Especially since betting on e-sports in 2020 is only allowed on the highest leagues.
